Carbon Neutral Environmental Changes at iQ Digital House
We have been working hard on our Green Environmental Initiative where we are looking to drive iQ to a more carbon balanced environment. We are delighted to share with you that we are now able to offer a 100% recycled paper stock at affordable prices!
Oxygen Offset is our bright white, smooth paper stock, made from 100% recycled fibres, and 100% of the carbon produced in the manufacturing process is offset by the paper merchants.
iQ have signed up to two initiatives…

We are continually working to improve our impact on the environment and to offer our clients different & better options for their print and have just introduced the replacement of plastic business card boxes with recyclable cardboard boxes, which is a great swap!
What is carbon balancing?
Carbon balancing is where the carbon impacts of a product or service have been estimated and the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide is either prevented from being released into, or is absorbed from, the atmosphere.
Carbon Balanced Paper’s carbon balancing programme, delivered by World Land Trust, offsets emissions through the protection of forests that are imminently threatened, the destruction of which would release greenhouse gases, and through the restoration of forest habitats, which sequester atmospheric carbon as they grow.
It is now recognised as one of the swiftest ways to arrest the rise in atmospheric CO2 and global warming effects! Since it’s launch in 2013 more than 153,000 tonnes of CO2 and 13,140 acres of ecologically endangered land have been preserved.
For the paper purchased for our iQ Cards project alone, we have balanced 15,262kg of CO2 and supported World Land Trust to protect 10,683m2 of critically threatened forest!
We utilise the carbon balancing programme, along with similar programmes with our other paper merchants too, we’ll share more about those soon!
We are continuing to look for ways we can improve on this, so watch this space for further changes!
