Responsible Forestry Practices
Fibre used in the production of paper that shows this symbol is sourced from pulp suppliers who practice responsible forestry techniques and/or use paper from managed plantation forests.
Paper made up of recycled fibers that have been extracted from existing paper products to be used in the manufacturer of further paper products. Recycled paper can be 100% recycled or consist of a mixture of pre and post-consumer waste along with some virgin fibre to add strength.
Process Chlorine Free
Made from post-consumer recycled fibre and processed without the use of any additional chlorine or chlorine compounds.
Paper Made Carbon Neutral
This logo applies to a paper that has had its carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions calculated; reduced where possible; and ‘offset’ through credits that fund renewable emission-free energy products. Calculations have been independently audited and include scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions from raw material (seedling) through to customer (either Ball & Doggett warehouses or printer). The majority of carbon-neutral papers that Ball & Doggett offer, fall under this cradle to customer model. Meaning the auditors have accounted for and offset all the greenhouse gas emissions for the actual processes that take place up until we hand the paper over. This measurement allows the printer the claim of ‘printing on carbon-neutral paper and the use of the ‘paper made carbon neutral logo’. However, any accompanying marketing statements must be clear that the claim relates to the paper and not the book or pamphlet, etc. Products displaying the ‘paper made carbon neutral logo’ indicate the offset has already been factored into the price and no extra charge applies.
ISO14001 EMS - Environmental Management Systems
Paper is manufactured by a mill that is accredited with ISO 14001, the international standard for organizing and achieving continual improvement in environmental management systems. This standard reviews the total manufacturing process and seeks continuous improvement in aspects such as energy efficiency, waste reduction, and pollution control.
