Digital postal company combats climate change through tree planting scheme
Following on from Postworks’ carbon neutrality status announced last month, the company is adding another string to their ‘green bow’.
In the process of digitising inbound and outbound post for their customers, Postworks handles a lot of paper. The key difference is that Postworks will be replacing all of the trees consumed on behalf of their customers, plus more.
Effective immediately, for every 10 trees of paper that Postworks use, they’re planting 11. That equates to thousands of trees every year, planted across the world.
At the recent COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland over 100 world leaders promised to end and reverse deforestation by 2030. As an industry leader, Postworks takes the responsibility to set the bar seriously.
James Booker, Postworks CEO, explains the importance of setting standards within the industry:
“We here at Postworks are proving post can be, not just sustainable, but environmentally positive.”
Currently, all envelopes and paper used by Postworks are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), the international organisation that promotes responsible management of the world’s forests. Additionally, 99% of paper and cardboard waste generated through Postworks is recycled.
The next 12 months promises to be another year of exciting environmental announcements as the company’s trailblazing Environmental Strategy is fulfilled by further investments into green energy, supply chain enhancements and increased efficiencies within the production processes.
