Antalis has confirmed that, through the World Land Trust, it has managed to balance 7350 tonnes of carbon dioxide, protecting 1190 acres of critically threatened tropical forest as a result.
The company started supporting the World Land Trust in December 2015, recognising the need to take positive action to help combat the world’s climate crisis. In the years since Antalis has developed its scheme to make it easier for customers to participate in carbon balancing.
‘Working with our customers to develop sustainable practices for our industry is hugely important to us,’ explained Katie Farr, marketing and communications manager at Antalis. ‘We’re delighted with the interest and support customers have shown for our carbon offsetting scheme through the World Land Trust. These latest figures, presenting our total achievement since joining the scheme on 1 December 2015, demonstrate the significant positive impact of our joint actions.’
Dan Bradbury, director of communications and development at the World Land Trust, added, ‘Antalis’ continued commitment to the Carbon Balanced Paper programme has made a huge impact on our conservation efforts in Vietnam, one of the most biologically diverse countries on Earth. Khe Nuoc Trong is essential habitat for 40 globally threatened species, including Southern White-Cheeked Gibbon, Crested Argus and the Red Shanked Douc, one of the world’s most endangered monkeys. The support of Antalis and its customers enables World Land Trust to continue to preserve these incredible habitats, protecting the species living within them, and keeping the carbon locked in.’
