Check Your Paper - a transparency tool

Check your Paper  is a tool for paper buyers and suppliers to develop supply chain transparency, to share critical information that both informs buying decisions and enables buyers and sellers to co-operate.
Click here for the method of establishing the Award winners and the eco-rating method of WWF´s “Check your Paper”.
WWF created the WWF Environmental Paper Awards to give credit to producers which are transparent about the ecological footprint of their paper products/brands, using WWF´s eco-rating method on the environmental footprint of fibre sourcing, and emissions to air and water.

WWF´s 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.

7 Awards for Transparency

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.

WWF congratulates the Award winners for leading by example by publishing more than 50% of their papers in one or more product categories on WWF´s Check Your Paper database of eco-rated papers.

Transparency is a pre-requisite for a true understanding of total value chain sustainability and WWF applauds all participating companies for making positive steps towards improving the transparency of the value chains they are part of.

Lenzing Papier have adopted a strategy to increase their share of recycled products and to be transparent with our data. We want to support a transition process towards responsible use of resources, in particular fibers, reduction in fossil carbon emissions, reduction in effluent, thus, minimising the effect on the environment and in particular on global warming.

As a result of our industrial integrated mill setup Lenzing Paper can achieve these remarkable environmental records. We want to encourage others to follow the route of transparency.

Ernst Brunbauer General Manager, Lenzing Papier GmbH

When producing paper we do not only think about today, but also about tomorrow.

Dr. Hubert Schrödinger, Managing Partner, Chairman of Management Holding, Leipa

We at Steinbeis Papier regard our production model as an ecological benchmark for the rest of the paper industry, thanks to our strong focus on recycling technology and eco-friendly manufacturing. For us, it’s important to aim high and also to deliver maximum transparency. The WWF Check your Paper database is one of several mechanisms we use to help us meet our commitment to transparency.

Michael Söffge (CEO), Steinbeis Papier GmbH
