TALL Group Provides Sustainable Solution for BBC Children in Need

The TALL Group of Companies, the UK leader in the provision of secure paper and electronic payment solutions, is working with BBC Children in Need to support this year’s fundraising efforts by providing sustainable print solutions for supporting HSBC banking documents. Runcorn-based TALL Security Print, a TALL Group company, will be producing bank paying-in slips for BBC Children in Need printed on paper supplied through their partner Premier Paper. Premier gives companies the opportunity to work very closely with the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, the Woodland Trust, in order to mitigate their CO2 emissions from paper purchases through the Carbon Capture programme.

Carbon Capture sees an additional contribution for each tonne of paper bought passed directly on to the Woodland Trust to fund the planting of native British trees to capture carbon from the atmosphere, creating beautiful woodland and natural habitats for wildlife. The TALL Group have so far produced 156,400 paying in slips, 150,000 A4 & A3 fundraising letters for both England and N Ireland and 11,000 A4 and A3 fundraising letters in Wales for BBC Children in Need.

Martin Ruda, Group Managing Director of TALL Group, said: “We are working with Premier Paper as part of our commitment to sustainable print solutions. As a group, we are very proud to provide our specialist services to BBC Children in Need, and committing to the Carbon Capture through the Woodland Trust adds even more value to that partnership. More than 500 of Premier Paper’s customers have already signed up to the scheme, and we’re confident that, at TALL, we’ll see more print opportunities in the near future where we can mitigate the CO2 emissions generated by the production, storage and distribution of the paper we purchase. Across the production sector we want to see every supplier take their environmental responsibility seriously and do their bit for the planet.”

The UK currently has just 13% of woodland cover compared to the European average of 37%. After the oceans, woodland is the biggest sink of CO2. So far over 65,000 tonnes of carbon have been captured through the Carbon Capture programme, equivalent to capturing the CO2 from 20 billion sheets of A4 paper.
