Sustainability Policy & Carbon Offsetting

While our sustainability policy is aimed at reducing carbon emissions from our products and our activities to a minimum, there inevitably remain some emissions which need to be offset. At Ecopaper we have voluntarily chosen to offset both emissions arising from our operations and progressively make a contribution towards offsetting the estimated life-cycle emissions from the products that we supply and the transport to the customer, so that you can order office, packaging, craft and promotional products with minimal environmental impact.
