[GreenYes] Environmental State of the Paper Industry Report


Title: Environmental State of the Paper Industry Report
Hi, Everybody,

Here’s a major new resource for paper purchasers and recyclers:

Today the Environmental Paper Network released a report called “The State of the Paper Industry: Monitoring the Indicators of Environmental Performance.” It is available for download from http://www.environmentalpaper.org/stateofthepaperindustry/

The report includes chapters on minimizing paper consumption, maximizing recycled content, responsible fiber sourcing, and cleaner production technology.

The good news, and the new news, is that a shift within the paper industry has begun, and leaders are emerging across every sector to embrace new tools for responsible choices, responsible production and major climate, health and forest benefits.  There absolutely are still severe problems and much, much more work to be done, but there is also genuine progress and real solutions are beginning to be embraced.  This report offers a broadly supported Vision and a challenge to the industry while documenting a baseline of environmental data for monitoring real progress and identifying real leaders in years to come.
