Paper and the Environment

Using paper is not necessarily bad for the environment. Paper is made from a renewable raw material that can be recycled. It boasts the highest rate of recycling of any material in the UK, and it is potentially sustainable. Demand also encourages responsible forestry and the growth of recycling.

However, the paper you choose and how you use it still makes a difference. Our free PDF factsheet clears up some common terminology and offers suggestions for what to think about when choosing paper.

Print and the Environment

 The UK is the world’s fifth largest producer of print, with over 10,000 companies turning over £14.3 billion.

This PDF factsheet will show you what the main environmental issues are, how they are being addressed, and what buyers and suppliers can do to make sure print becomes and remains a responsible and sustainable medium.
