At momentoprint we are committed to use paper milled from recycled pulp and sustainable forests. And all of our paper suppliers are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) accredited.
Some facts you may not know:
• Almost all of our paper now uses recycled pulp or is from FSC accredited Paper Mills. AND, of course, we stock and sell 100% recycled A4 Copy Paper.
• Virtually all of the virgin fibre used is certified to a sustainable forestry management system. This means the timber is harvested as a crop and is managed by replanting programmes which exceed
the quantity of felled trees.
• Our printing Inks are vegetable-based and our printing plates are recycled.
• 90% of electricity on mill sites is generated through combined heat and power.
• All of our paper mills are certified to an environmental management system.
• Over 90% of the United Kingdom’s paper comes from European Forests.
• Since the 1950s, forests in Western Europe have increased by 30%.
• Forests now cover over 40% of the European Unions landmass, and are
growing at the rate of four times the size of Greater London every year.
• The Forestry Industry is the EU’s biggest producer of renewable energy.
