Antalis supports climate change event
Antalis has become an official partner of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21) and will supply all of the paper used for printed documents during the course of this major international event.
In keeping with the event’s theme and Antalis’ commitment to eco-responsibility, the paper used for stationary, posters, handouts and all other documentation, will have a five-star rating under the Green Star System, which means that it will be both be recycled and carry the EU Ecolabel.
The 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11), otherwise known as “Paris 2015”, which will be held in France from November 30th to December 11th, will seek to agree the adoption of a binding universal climate agreement to limit the increase in global temperature to below two degrees Celsius.
HervéPoncin, Chief Operating Officer of Antalis International said: “Antalis and the paper industry in general must lead by example and continue the efforts already made to reduce their environmental impact through the increased use of cogeneration and renewable energy sources, and further more to promote recycled paper which has a lower impact on the environment.”
He added: “Environmental responsibility is an ongoing commitment that needs to be part of the DNA of every company if we are to make a lasting contribution to the preservation of the planet and reduce global warming and Antalis is proud to support COP21 and its ambitious objective.”
