Carbon Reduction Strategy

We are currently reviewing our environmental performance and emissions through the calculation of a carbon footprint baseline. We are collaborating with Eight Versa, who are a sustainability consultancy, to create a dedicated plan to reduce our emissions and ultimately achieve Net Zero.

FSC® Paper and Board

Midland Regional Printers Ltd are very proud to announce we are officially Forest Stewardship Council® certified.

The Forest Stewardship Council® is an organisation dedicated to ensuring responsible management of the world’s forests. All forests are inspected and certified against strict standards set by FSC® whilst protecting both the local communities’ rights and the environment. Only forests that meet these strict standards are given FSC certification and are then allowed to carry the FSC Trademarks.

Advantages of FSC® Paper and Board:

  • All paper and board is sourced from sustainable forests and other controlled sources following all laws, regulations and nationally-approved agreements.
  • Ecosystems and the environment are carefully maintained or restored where needed.
  • Maintaining and improving the social and economic wellbeing of local communities.
  • FSC provide the highest level of protection for endangered species and natural forests.
  • FSC are proud to be endorsed by the major environmental charities including WWF, Greenpeace and the World Land Trust.
  • The registered FSC logo can be used on your packaging and marketing.

Carbon Balanced Paper

Carbon Balancing is where the carbon impacts of the paper or board production have been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon is either prevented from being released into, or is absorbed from, the atmosphere. Carbon Balancing is facilitated by the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, through the preservation of high conservation value forests.

For you and your company, this is a simple, valid and measurable way to reduce the carbon impacts of your printed media and communications whilst enhancing your brand.

Advantages of Carbon Balancing:

  • Represents the World Land Trust and their REDD+ projects.
  • Although a number of the paper and board grades are already Carbon Balanced, any paper or board can be Carbon Balanced.
  • There are no supply chain dependencies.
  • The registered Carbon Balanced logo can be used on your packaging and marketing.
  • There is also an official World Land Trust certificate to endorse the amount of CO2 and High Conservation Value Land saved.
  • Excellent for Environmental reporting – the World Land Trust certificate serves as an environmental record for ISO 14001 and carbon reporting.

We plant a tree for every order received

We are proud to announce our partnership with Ecologi, where we are planting a tree for every order we receive. You can check out how many trees we have already planted and how much CO2 has been neutralised by visiting https://ecologi.com/midlandregionalprint. We have also committed to a monthly subscription to continue planting trees going forward.

Ecologi collaborates with countries all over the world, mainly in the Global South, to plant trees in regions where the environmental, social, and economic impact is the most significant. Their focus is on reforestation projects, carbon offsetting, and supporting initiatives that align with the principles of environmental conservation. Each tree planted by Ecologi is certified for full traceability, ensuring the highest level of quality and accountability.

Now, the exciting part for you! As the trees are planted from your orders, we can send you a personalised certificate for the number of trees you have helped plant over the last year, as well as any future orders. This certificate will be an excellent addition to your marketing materials and social media, showcasing your contribution to fighting climate change.

Previously, we partnered with Grow My Tree, and over the last year, we planted over 6,672 trees with them, neutralising 146,784kg of CO2!

If you want to find out more about our tree-planting initiative, please feel free to contact us.

Supporting The World Land Trust

We support the World Land Trust by buying an acre of land every year, to help protect land and habituate loss whilst ensuring a future for wildlife. This is something as a company we are very passionate about and have contributed to this for the last twelve years.

The World Land Trust is an international conservation charity (founded in 1989) and was one of the first organisations in the world to focus specifically on the conservation of threatened habitats through land purchase. Working with partner organisations across the world, The World Land Trust funds the purchase or lease of threatened land to create nature reserves, protecting both habitats and their wildlife.

The World Land Trust does not own or manage any of the areas it helps save outside of the UK. The land is always purchased, protected and managed by local partner organisations or communities.

It’s patrons include: Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packman, Steve Backshall and David Gower OBE.
