LONDON, Aug. 20, 2012 (Press Release) -Antalis McNaughton has launched a new service to purchase CarbonNeutral Certified Paper, which enables customers to offset the carbon dioxide emissions associated with paper production and distribution.

The scope of the certification includes all the carbon dioxide emissions from paper making and delivery through Antalis McNaughton and onwards to our customers.

Customers shall receive from Antalis McNaughton a license to use the CarbonNeutral Certified Paper label on the papers they have offset and they can also promote the two carbon offset projects that Antalis McNaughton has chosen and which are underpinned by The CarbonNeutral Protocol. They will also receive a certificate for the paper(s) that were carbon offset. The chosen projects are the Tieling Methane Capture and the Uchindile-Mapanda Forest project in Tanzania.

Products now available with CarbonNeutral certification include Cocoon, Cyclus Offset, Digigreen and Trucard.

Matthew Botfield, Environment Manager commented: "Sustainability is a key challenge for paper mills and merchants. Increasing customer demand has seen a rise in paper brands looking for environmental solutions that go beyond raw materials. Going CarbonNeutral complements existing accreditations and provides our customers with a means to reduce their carbon footprint to net zero, set stretching reduction targets, enhance their brand and maintain their competitive edge."
