Antalis Iberia, European leader in the distribution of paper, visual communication aids and packaging solutions, and Arjowiggins Graphic, a leading manufacturer in the development of environmental solutions for paper-based communications, have published a study carried out through the EcoAct agency, an expert in climate strategies.
The objective is to clarify that the economic impact of the use of these papers on the total cost of the printed project, compared to the use of virgin fiber paper, it is lower than what is usually believed and it is situated on average between 0,1 and 3,7%.
With the results of this study, companies can verify, based on concrete and reliable data, that with a slight difference in the cost of the work, they can choose recycled papers, the most eco-responsible on the market. These papers, in addition to complying with the 3Rs principle (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), reduce the use of natural resources (wood), consume 3 times less water and energy consumption * and reduce CO2 emissions by 300 kg / Tn *. All this without compromising quality and reinforcing the image of the company internally and externally.
Regarding the mechanics of the study, 7 communication agencies in different European countries were selected: 2 England, 3 France and 2 Germany, which economically evaluated 7 real projects, with specific characteristics, each of them printed on 3 or 4 different papers , from the range distributed by Antalis International.
