SITTINGBOURNE, UK, Feb. 6, 2012 (Press Release) -Denmaur Independent Papers has strengthened its environmental branding by now offering carbon neutral certified paper.

With the endorsement of The CarbonNeutral Company, Denmaur now provide ten of their current stock lines with carbon neutral certification.

Commenting on this, Danny Doogan, Denmaur Independent Paper's Environmental Manager, stated,

"Each of the grades has been subject to a comprehensive and independent audit in respect of the carbon emissions associated at each stage of their production, storage and delivery."

"The value of the total carbon emissions figure has been invested into a Verified Carbon Offsetting scheme, and it this investment that allows us to sell nominated stock lines as carbon neutral."

The grades included are as follows ;

  • Amadeus primo Gloss and Silk
  • Amadeus 50% recycled Gloss, Silk and Offset
  • Amadeus 75% recycled Matt
  • Amadeus 100% recycled Gloss, Silk and Offset
  • UPM Fine

Last year, Denmaur Independent Papers was awarded ISO 14001 certification for the implementation of their "Act on CO2 at Denmaur" initiative, which was responsible for driving down their direct environmental impacts. However, the association with The CarbonNeutral Company will form an integral part of Denmaur's environmental management system by addressing their indirect environmental impacts.

Continuing, Doogan pointed out,

"The notion of investing into a carbon offsetting scheme does have its critics, but its validity is that it allows us to outsource the further reduction our carbon footprint."

"Denmaur will register all carbon neutral transactions with The CarbonNeutral Company and they will provide labelling and documentation to ensure a chain of traceability that will support carbon neutral certified print."
