The paper industry today is at the forefront of the sustainability movement, making great changes to reduce emissions and waste. Mondi Business Paper Service looks at the advancement of environmentally responsible sourcing in printing and publishing.

The trend for products that reflect responsible environmental practices is becoming a defining feature across all industries. Increasing awareness of environmental practices is changing the way in which both consumers and manufacturers approach buying and production. As a result sustainable management has become a core business issue for many organisations. This includes minimising the amount of waste that is produced, reducing energy consumption and making more efficient use of resources.

Not so very long ago, the notion of environmentally responsible sourcing of paper products for printers and publishers hardly came into question. Recycled papers didn’t offer the optimal whiteness needed for professional printing and the forestry industry was facing stark criticism for clear-cutting great expanses of forest.

Today the paper industry, long targeted by environmentalists, is at the forefront of the sustainability movement, making great changes to reduce emissions and waste. It has become a model for other industries, with NGOs, manufacturers, social groups and forestry companies working together to effect change.
