What we've achieved:

More than £900,000 has been raised by Premier Paper; that's enough to fund the planting of 227,760 trees.

How it works

More than 240 Premier Paper customers have signed up to Carbon Capture, which utilises the Woodland Trust’s Woodland Carbon scheme to mitigate the CO2 emissions generated by the production, storage and distribution of the paper they purchase.


An additional £8.50 is paid for each tonne of paper bought. This is passed on to the Trust to fund the planting of trees, which can absorb carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.

56,938 tonnes
of carbon have been captured through our partnership. That’s as heavy as 11,000 elephants or 11.3 billion sheets of A4 paper!

The paper that plants trees

The success of Carbon Capture saw Premier Paper launch Woodland Trust Office Paper in 2014. For every pack of the paper sold, 5p of the wholesale price goes directly to the Trust. Of this, 2p goes towards Woodland Carbon and 3p to our other work, such as the protection and restoration of ancient woodland.
