RECAP: To put it in layman’s terms, Carbon Balanced is where the carbon impacts of a product have been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon is prevented from being released or is absorbed from the atmosphere -  facilitated by World Land Trust (WLT).

In Partnership With World Land Trust


World Land Trust is an international conservation charity that protects some of the world’s most biodiverse and threatened habitats. Home to many wild and wonderful creatures, the area covers colossal ground. 

To date, WLT has been instrumental in the purchase and protection of more than 540,000 acres of habitat in Africa, Asia, Central and South America and the UK to create reserves and wildlife a place they can call home.

The charity’s work is pioneered by their passionate patrons - one of these being none other than Sir David Attenborough, Britain’s most loved nature historian. He’s played an active role in the conservation world throughout his career, producing many spectacular shows that bring nature onto our screens in unimaginable ways.

“The money that is given to World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.”

Sir David has supported the initiative since it was founded all the way back in 1989. You can find out more about WLT and how it continues to support a more Carbon Balanced world in this blog.

By using Carbon Balanced paper, not only will you help protect the 42 endangered species that inhabit Vietnam’s Khe Nuoc Trong - such as the Southern White-cheeked Gibbon and Orlov’s Treefrog - but you’ll also protect the forests under looming threat. 

With this switch, you lock in the carbon that would otherwise be released, ensuring the continued absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Choosing to use Carbon Balanced Paper is an undoubtedly kinder decision to the planet. 

Fortunately, there’s more you can do to continue your commitment to the planet and make your print process greener.
