[I]n 2017, as part of the Carbon Capture Programme, Penrith based H&H Reeds Printers (HHRP), along with the support of their customers, planted over 1.7 acres of native woodland and captured 280.244 kgs of CO2 by doing so.
Continuing in 2018, they have already planted 1,454.45 m2 between January-March 2018 and removed 58,178kg of carbon dioxide. A percentage of each paper purchase sold from H&H Reeds Printers goes to the Woodland Trust. This is then used to plant woodland at one of their accredited creation sites across the UK.
With offices in both Penrith and Milnthorpe, H&H Reeds Printers have always tried to lead in the way it approaches its environmental responsibilities. They were the first ISO 14001 registered company in Cumbria. As one of the top 300 energy efficient companies in the UK, H&H RP are determined to continue their successes and demonstrate their commitment to the environment throughout the business.
Commenting on the success of 2017 Andy Jackson, Managing Director of H&H Reeds Printers says: “We are proud to see the outcome the company and our customers have made to our environment. We are one of the most environmentally friendly printers in the UK and offer carbon saving printing at no extra cost to our customers, so we can genuinely say what we do is making a real difference to the environment.”
The Woodland Trust has created projects that offer companies the chance to lessen their CO2 emissions and at the same time, organisations will be supporting other projects that help the landscape adapt to climate change and ensure the UK is no longer one of the least wooded nations in Europe.
So in a partnership between HHRP, their paper suppliers and the Woodland Trust, the papers and boards they use have been carbon captured. In addition, the inks that are used for printing are vegetable based ensuring that all products the eco-friendly printers use, are produced in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
