As a provider of both direct mail and leaflet distribution services, Lbox Communications have reflected upon our collective carbon footprint as a business. At the time of writing, we have stepped up our sustainability commitments as an organisation.
As a result of our structural and organisational changes, company-wide incentives and the introduction of new partnerships with leading charities and trusts, we are pleased to say that we are now entirely company carbon neutral.
Lbox Communications are a green direct mail and leaflet distribution company
Much like with any mailing house providing nationwide direct mail marketing as well as tailored leaflet distribution services, our reliance on non-renewable physical resources remains at the forefront of our minds daily.
As a company, we recognise that to provide our clients with the delivery and printing services at the scale and high quality they expect, we have to rely on physical materials like paper and packaging and the use of carbon-emitting transport for leaflet deliveries.
To take the next step towards carbon neutrality, we have taken affirmative action to counterbalance our reliance on these resources with the right eco-friendly initiatives to ensure we are giving back and contributing positively to the environment.
Ecologi partnership for climate positive workforce
Ecologi helps organisations offset their carbon footprint by establishing solutions to help these businesses develop a Climate Positive Workforce and tackle the climate crisis.
The solutions include carbon reduction projects where business’ money is invested in evidence-based projects that actively reduce greenhouse gas emissions and tree planting to prevent global temperatures from rising above 1.5%.
A Climate Positive Workforce is achieved by an organisation offsetting all employees’ carbon footprint, including emissions from their home, personal travel, commutes, holidays, hobbies, food and more. This offsetting also extends to business trips, which are often unavoidable, and the aforementioned climate crisis solutions the business partner funds. At Lbox Communications, we are proud to partner with Ecologi and support them in their incredible efforts to tackle climate change. Now all of our staff’s carbon is wholly offset.
Alongside our initiative to create a Climate Positive Workforce, Lbox Communications are now entirely ‘company carbon neutral’ and will offset more than five times the amount of carbon we produce. At the time of writing, we have also planted over 2000 trees worldwide, including in reforestation projects and rainforest areas.
Partnership with Rainforest Trust UK
Lbox Communications is proud to be a Conservation Circle partner of Rainforest Trust UK, a British charity working in partnership with Rainforest Trust in the US to protect the world’s most threatened rainforests and other tropical ecosystems.
Rainforest Trust is one of the world’s most respected and successful conservation charities, and works in partnership with trusted local NGOs and indigenous communities to save the world’s most threatened rainforests and tropical ecosystems. Rainforest Trust has been protecting rainforests for over 30 years and has already placed over 37 million acres of threatened habitat under permanent protection. You can find out more about Rainforest Trust’s uniquely successful approach to conservation by clicking here.
All donations to the charity’s SAVES Challenge conservation projects are doubled by a generous supporter, meaning every pound donated will save twice as much rainforest for endangered species, indigenous communities and the climate. Rainforest Trust UK also guarantees that 100% of all donations are directed towards direct conservation action as all its operating expenses are covered by its board members and Gift Aid.
Direct mail services from a carbon-neutral supplier
Our commitments going forward are to ensure we do not compromise executing marketing campaigns in our structured way.
Direct mail and leaflet distribution campaigns are both reliant on finite physical materials being printed and distributed. It’s our responsibility, as a mailing house, to ensure we fulfil our clients’ expectations every time, even as we continue to make these organisational changes.
On the surface, delivering printed leaflets and physical mail-in door drops might seem counterintuitive in this testing period where climate change is (no pun intended) a hot topic. However, Lbox Communications are committed to negating what we produce by investing in climate-positive projects and giving back in an environmentally friendly way. We’ll do this while continuing to help our clients achieve a return on investment with mailing solutions, as well as data managing and data processing, to support these leaflet campaigns.
We are committed to continually improving what we produce, the materials we use and the suppliers we rely on (such as Royal Mail) to ensure we’re giving back at the correct scale and operating at a carbon-neutral level.
