Carbon Balanced Publication is the highest statement of integrity and credibility for the End User, and providers of paper based communications, that the carbon impacts of the whole production of a printed item has been estimated and balanced (offset).
Alongside the mandatory use of Carbon Balanced Paper, it is produced by a Carbon Balanced Publication Printer – a print organisation who has mapped their own operational carbon footprint to defined boundaries, 3rd party verified by the Edinburgh Centre of Carbon Management (ECCM), and has then balanced (offset) these impacts with the World Land Trust (WLT).
Certified providers differentiate themselves as leaders on the environment, and carbon management, and are licensed to use the unique Carbon Balanced Publication Logo.
