– After the success of superior quality recycled and FSC uncoated paper from Neenah, Crane and Monadnock to the UAE, Papers Worldwide, UAE's recycled paper pioneers are pleased to present a high quality 100% recycled ( post consumer) and FSC certified office paper.
Presenting - the greenest photocopy/office paper, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and is a 100% recycled, chlorine and acid free paper. It is manufactured with a chlorine free process, thereby eliminating the negative effect of chemicals on the environment.
Vikramjeet Judge, MD, Papers Worldwide explained the reasoning behind the launch of this paper and competitive pricing with normal photocopy paper - "We have always supported and promoted recycled and FSC paper products. Being the pioneer and official suppliers to several ministries and government agencies, we identified a gap in the market for a high quality, certified green product for everyday office and copier use. Our product is manufactured as a result of a high quality and advanced ecoo friendly manufacturing process and is the answer to the demands of sustainable company who are looking to reduce their energy, water and carbon footprint without increasing their expenses. The 90 brightness of this product, gives great print results and true colors, one of the highest in photocopy sector".
Another important point highlighted by Mr Judge was - "Due to both the mill and distributor both being duly certified by FSC, the chain of custody stays linked and bonafide something not available with any other distributor in UAE. Similarily, paper made from wheat germ, bagasse or 'recyclable' paper is being promoted at Recycled Paper, which is not accurate at all. Therefore companies must understand the correct FSC certification procedure and Recycled or post consumer fibre specifications and not get swayed by exaggerated claims made by local merchants and go only by the price".
Now companies and government department can supplement their CSR and sustainable activities and their commitment to a greener UAE by switching to 100% recycled and FSC photocopy paper from Papers Worldwide. It is the easiest way to balance high print performance with the CSR and environmentally responsible corporate practices.
As a benchmark - an office which consumes 50 boxes of 100% recycled photocopy paper a month would save, over the course of a year, approximately 26 trees, 21 million BTUs of energy, 10,800 gallons of water and prevent 3.7 tonnes of Carbon emissions as well as divert 1,500 kilograms of waste paper from entering landfills.
