FSC certified companies are recognised in WWF’s Environmental Paper Awards
WWF has announced the winners of the 2012 WWF Environmental Paper Awards in the categories “Transparency” and “Best Environmental Performance Paper Brands”.WWF created the WWF Environmental Paper Awards to give credit to producers which are transparent about the ecological footprint of their paper products/brands. Their global database of eco-rated paper products, Check Your Paper, is an important global benchmarking tool for transparency and understanding the total value chain sustainability of paper. It enables paper producers and merchants to list their products online and buyers to search transparent information on the environmental footprint of pulp and papers.
The WWF Environmental Paper Awards 2012 in the category “Transparency” are given to the following 7 producers (in alphabetical order): Arjowiggins Graphic, Lenzing Papier, Metsä Board, Mondi, SCA, Steinbeis Papier, and UPM.
The WWF Environmental Paper Awards 2012 in the category “Best Environmental Paper Brands” are given to 46 brands from the following producers/merchants: Arjowiggins Graphic, Lenzing Papier, Mondi, SCA, Steinbeis Papier, UPM, Antalis McNaughton, Kimberly Clark, Leipa, Van Houtum.
FSC UK is delighted to see FSC certified companies being recognised for the environmental status of their paper and we hope that these awards and the Check Your Paper database will help to drive demand for certified products and increase the range of FSC brands on the market.
