RWE Supply & Trading and Koehler Paper have agreed on a long-term green power supply of up to 175,000 megawatt hours per year. The green power certificates come from the Dutch 54-megawatt Waddenwind wind farm in the Groningen region, which has been connected to the grid since the beginning of the year. RWE Supply & Trading combines the certificates of origin into a green power supply and integrates them into Koehler Paper's procurement portfolio. Thanks to this contract, production at Koehler Paper’s Kehl site is largely climate-neutral. “By taking this step, we are saving around 100,000 tonnes of CO₂ per year. We are thus underlining our claim to carry the concept of sustainability through the entire value chain of our paper production,” says Dr. Stefan Karrer, Chief Operating Officer of the Koehler Group. The family-owned company has set itself the goal of producing in a climate-friendly manner and thus making a contribution to the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement. Koehler is sticking to these goals, despite the enormous unexpected challenges resulting from the current energy crisis. “We are pleased to support Koehler Paper in the realisation of its sustainability strategy,” says Dr Hendrik Niebaum, Head of Commodity Solutions at RWE Supply & Trading. “The demand for CO₂-free electricity supplies from renewable sources is growing strongly. The cooperation with Koehler Paper and Waddenwind shows the potential in the European market.” The contract has a term of ten years and is valid from 2023.
We are proud to announce that The Stationers’ Company has awarded Two Sides a Stationers’ Warrant Crest for 2021.
The Stationers’ Company Warrant Scheme, launched in 2014, recognises excellence within the Communications and Content industries in the form of annual recognition. The warrant seal of excellence may be used on products, to promote products, or by organisations that meet the highest standards of excellence as assessed by the team of judges.
“We are pleased to award Two Sides with the Stationers’ Warrant Crest, for their information led campaign which promotes the sustainability of print, paper and paper packaging. The materials produced by Two Sides are educational and easily accessible for the industry to use.” – Christine Geer, Chair of the Warrants Committee.
Two Sides impressed judges with their campaigning and information led programme. It was recognised that the resources produced by Two Sides inform and educate consumers on the sustainability of print and paper-based products and available for the industry to use. The opportunity to develop this further with versions targeted at schools, and the next generation, and a wider demographic provided much discussion within the judging panel. Furthermore, they felt that innovation was demonstrated by Two Sides with their biennial Trend Tracker Survey, their research on consumer perceptions and attitudes across a wide range of topics relating to print, paper, paper packaging and tissue products. All of this fulfilled the brief to win the Stationers’ Company Warrant.
“We are honoured that our campaign and efforts have been recognised by this award. Being able to use the Stationers’ Warrant Crest in our communications will increase the reach and integrity of our message, and provide our members and partners ever increasing confidence in the work that we do for the industry.”– Jonathan Tame, Managing Director of Two Sides Europe.
With all businesses facing unprecedented challenges, which have been intensified by the global pandemic, the Stationers’ Warrant provides a unique opportunity to showcase the quality and value of information delivered by Two Sides.
