Our vision


The Environmental Paper Network’s core document is our Global Paper Vision, a powerful statement of a future where paper production and consumption is socially and environmentally sustainable. Published in June 2014, it has been endorsed by more than 120 organisations on six continents.

It expresses 7 priorities:

  1. Reduce global paper consumption and promote fair access to paper
  2. Maximise recycled fibre content
  3. Ensure social responsibility
  4. Source fibre responsibly
  5. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  6. Ensure clean production
  7. Ensure transparency and integrity
