Europe | WWF


12 European companies (headquarter location) used the WWF EPCI 2013 to be transparent and to promote continual improvement.
WWF encourages more pulp and paper producers in Europe to use the Index as opportunity to demonstrate the efforts they might be undertaking to address environmental issues. The Index now allows companies to be assessed on an ongoing basis prior to the next EPCI in 2015. Contact the WWF International Paper Team!

We are incredibly proud to be part of the WWF's Environmental Paper Company Index (EPCI) as it is an extremely relevant and important part of measuring Arjowiggins Graphic's environmental credentials. The EPCI has helped us to set ambitious goals and targets that have constantly pushed Arjowiggins Graphic to operate in a sustainable and transparent way.
Importantly, it also provides a non-biased analysis of our sustainability credentials for our customers - enabling them to make truly sustainable decisions based on up-to-date, environmental impact information. 

Agnes Roger, Chief Executive, Arjowiggins Graphic

In a global business, all players should be evaluated against fair and balanced criteria. UPM’s approach is highlighted in for example the company’s expansion of EMAS to cover operations in Uruguay and China, and in participation in WWF´s ECPI. UPM commends WWF’s initiative to widen the scope of the EPCI from fine papers to a wider Graphic paper scope including newsprint. 

John Sanderson, Director, Environmental Marketing and Development, UPM

Stating and explaining environmental actions, ensuring a high level of transparency in the information presented, and committing ourselves to meeting new challenges all clearly demonstrate Lecta´s vigorous sustainability policy. Lecta communicates its environmental practices transparently and on a regular basis.
