Printing
Scanplus (ISO 14001: 2008)
Paper
Greencoat Plus Velvet contains 80% recycled fibre and has been independently certified according to the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
If you have finished with this report and no longer wish to retain it, please pass it on to other interested readers or dispose of it in your recycled paper waste.
