Linney commits to Carbon Balanced Print

Helping our clients demonstrate their sustainability commitment

Linney is now certified for producing Carbon Balanced Print – the industry’s highest statement of integrity for sustainably printed products. We’re the largest UK print provider to receive this prestigious accreditation.

Following rigorous procurement and print processes, the certification means we’re able to support the outstanding global conservation work of the World Land Trust (WLT) and help tackle climate change through responsible and third-party verified carbon offsetting.

Through fundraising, conservation and the backing of its patrons, including Sir David Attenborough and Chris Packham CBE, the WLT supports the maintenance and survival of some of the world’s most exceptional biodiversity, particularly in regions under pressure from globalisation. Since 1989, the WLT has been able to secure more than 881,000 acres of threatened habitat across 20 countries.

The certification follows significant investment and procedural changes by Linney. From procurement and production, to printing and distribution, every aspect has been optimised to help reach the Carbon Balanced goal.

Monkey in the forest swinging from trees

Print remains at the core of our marketing business, with world-class equipment and service alongside decades of dedicated printing excellence. We are FSC and ISO 14001 certified, and the Carbon Balanced Paper programme maintains our push towards a carbon-balanced future.

With two-thirds of global consumers willing to pay more for sustainable brands and practices, the time to move to Carbon Balanced Print is now.

Carbon Balanced Print will help our clients demonstrate their sustainability commitment and bolster their ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) credentials with an initiative that continues to deliver carbon reductions year on year. Certification will highlight their positive impact and permit the use of the World Land Trust Carbon Balanced Print logo on their print collateral.

“Carbon offsetting is a pivotal part of Linney’s Sustainability agenda. We’re pledging our commitment to sustainable and zero-carbon print practices by investing now to minimise our future environmental impact. We’ve no Planet B, so spending more now to help save what we have is an investment cost we feel is worth making. Meanwhile, we’ll continue to work innovatively over the coming years on reducing our absolute emissions in line with our 2025 Sustainability goals.”
