Print and design co-operative Calverts received silver in the 2008 Mayor of London's Green Procurement Code Awards. A life cycle study showed Calverts recycled paper purchasing diverted 76 tonnes of post consumer waste, reduced CO2 emmissions by 107 tonnes, saved 2,301,300 litres of water and 176.43 m3 of landfill space. Since 2001, Calverts has measured and reported its purchasing of recycled publishing papers as part of a drive to achieve progressive environmental impacts and contribute to building markets for recycled paper products. The co-op, which holds the Green Mark award and is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, expects to qualify for the ISO14001 environmental management accreditation in 2009.
