Carbon Neutral Paper

 

Printgraphics house paper, Sovereign Gloss and Silk, is now available as Carbon Neutral!

K.W.Doggett Fine Paper have been working with the carbon accountants. The calculations ecovantage to produce a detailed cradle-to-grave life cycle assessment (LCA) of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by our house stock Sovereign gloss and silk.

Now the calculations are complete we are able to offset your paper using the not-for-profit Climate Positive. We can neutralise the associated carbon emissions through the ´Liaoning Faku Heping wind power project´ in North East China.

The LCA adheres to both national and international carbon accounting standards ISO 14044 and PAS 2050, in order to be accurate, complete, credible, and most importantly - transparent.

The calculations have incorporated and verified all stages of a product’s life cycle ´cradle-to-grave´ - from raw materials, to production processes,  the many transport stages in the international supply chain, printing, storage and distribution facilities, to customer use and eventually, the disposal/recycling which marks the end of the product’s useful life.

About the offset project

Liaoning Faku Heping wind power project is located in the region of Faku County, Shenyang City, Liaoning Provence. The main objective of the project is to construct a wind farm and generate power from clean renewable wind power in Liaoning Province, and contribute to the sustainability of power generation of the North West China power grid.

This project is valuable because it reduces air pollution by replacing coal-fired power plants with clean, renewable power, reduces the dependence on fossil fuels for power generation and contributes to local economic development through employment creation. Some more facts:

·    The project operates 58 wind turbines with a total installed capacity of 49.3 MW.

·    The project is expected to supply 106,230 mWh power to the grid annually.

·    The project reduces approximately 121,506 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.
