English Heritage (EH) has committed to using Carbon Balanced paper for all its visitors guides, which in 2013 is projected to have saved 260 tonnes of carbon emissions.

How does the Environmental Practice Work?

Managing Director, Matthew Wise explains:

Carbon is offset by the 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. These saved forests then continue to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Our aim is to provide an environmentally responsible, sustainable and Carbon Balanced service and we are dedicated to creating greater awareness to our customers and suppliers.

To become a Carbon Balanced Publications printer, Banbury Litho has estimated and balanced (offset) its own unavoidable carbon emissions; as a result the Carbon impact on any of the print can be estimated and the Carbon Balanced Publication logo displayed.

Carbon Balanced Publication is the most recent development in the print industry’s carbon reduction strategy. The timing is perfect as everyone is keen to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

Through displaying this unique carbon balanced publication logo on their printed material, customer and clients are able to demonstrate their own sustainably responsible behaviour.

Our FSC and PEFC certifications allow us, if requested, to label projects, which in turn enables consumers to identify a commitment to sustainable printing.

As a company we actively minimise our use of energy and natural resources, and aim to foster within our business a greater awareness for the eco-friendly options available. This helps us to continually endorse our ISO14001 accredited status.

All our paper suppliers have a strict ecological policy and only those on our approved supplier database will be used. All our printing plates, packaging and waste is recycled and we use only high quality vegetable oil-based inks containing no hydrocarbons.

Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your work is in safe hands.
