Sustainability is without doubt the major topic of our time. But what is Metapaper's sustainability position? Our focus is very clear and simple - identifying two major input factors in paper production: fiber and energy.
Fiber. All the papers in our portfolio are produced from sustainable forestry, recycled fiber, alternative fibers or upcycled from products. In the course of this, we gradually increase the proportion of recycled and upcycled fibers in our product range and simultaneously reduce the proportion of virgin fibers. Take EXTRAMATT Coldwhite, for example, which will be replaced by EXTRAMATT RECYCLING Coldwhite.
Energy. Paper production is an incredible energy intensive process. For this reason, we insist upon maximizing the use of renewable energies. Our EXTRAROUGH and EXTRASMOOTH papers, in particular, are produced using 100% wind energy. Using wind energy significantly reduces the CO2 balance compared to papers produced using fossil fuels.

If you have any suggestions on what more we can do to improve our sustainability position, or what we can do better, please do contact us. We would be delighted to learn and exchange ideas and best practices with you.
This year the good news just keeps coming. Once again we have something for lovers of thick cards and small print runs and for everyone who cares about sustainability: the Multiloft cover made from EXTRAROUGH RECYCLING White in 325 gsm.
"Be the change you wish to see in the world" - changes do not always have to be brought about by great actions. Even small actions can make a big difference. You can also contribute to sustainability by integrating it into your passion - in this case handlettering. For example, through the choice of paper.
