5th July 2010: Collins Debden Ltd has launched a new & unique CarbonNeutral® range of notebooks & diaries this week. The range includes high quality A4 & A5 Notebooks and also a 2011 A5 Week to View Diary. Each of these titles uses 100% recycled paper and board plus all carbon emissions produced in the manufacturing, storage, packing and distribution have been measured and reduced to net zero through a selection of internationalcarbon offset projects.
Collins has developed its CarbonNeutral® range by partnering with The CarbonNeutral Company, the world leading provider of carbon reductions solutions, whose aim is to work with companies committed to reducing their carbon footprint with solutions that strengthen their business.
Collins continue to lead the way within the diary and stationery market and this is a great example of its product innovation, keeping up to date with the environmental demands of the modern consumer.
Global scientific consensus states that carbon emissions must be reduced by 80% by 2050 to avoid irreversible climate change. Businesses and individuals have an essential role in meeting these targets and carbon offsetting enables them to play their part in tackling climate change.
Collins has chosen to offset its carbon emissions through a number of carbon offset projects from The CarbonNeutral Company’s Unity Portfolio, concentrating on energy efficiency, methane recovery and/or low carbon fuel switches.
One of Collins’ first projects has been to support the Tieling coal mine methane project. This project prevents the potent greenhouse gas, methane, from being released into the atmosphere. At each of the project sites, technology has been installed to capture the coal mine methane (CMM) and blend it to a concentration suitable for use as a fuel source. This is a unique initiative as it is currently the only project in China to use CMM as fuel for gas supply. The Tieling project improves on earlier technologies funded by the United Nations Development programme along with the Japanese and Chinese governments to demonstrate methane extraction in China. Alongside the environmental benefits, the project also enhances the local economy with the creation of 260 permanent engineering, construction and maintenance jobs and 291 temporary positions.
