“Our aim is to provide an environmentally responsible, sustainable and carbon balanced service and we are dedicated to creating greater awareness of the eco-friendly options available to our customers and suppliers.”
To become a Carbon Balanced Publication printer, Banbury Litho has estimated and balanced (offset) its own unavoidable carbon emissions. As a result the carbon impacts of any job or publication can be estimated, and the Carbon Balanced Publication logo displayed. Carbon is offset by ecological charity the World Land Trust through purchasing ecologically important standing forests under threat of clearance. These forests lock carbon which would otherwise be released, and then continue to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
By taking this responsible lead Banbury Litho is able to add value to customers and their clients using paper-based communications by reducing environmental and carbon impacts throughout the value chain. Through the use of the unique Carbon Balanced Publication logo on their printed material, customers and clients are able to demonstrate their own sustainably responsible behaviour.
Matthew Wise says: “Carbon Balanced Publication is the most recent development in the print industry’s carbon reduction strategy. The timing is perfect as everyone is looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and more and more pressure is on us all to embrace a low-carbon economy.”
