Twenty-five of the world’s major pulp and paper manufacturers, with a combined annual output of 85 million tonnes, have embraced transparency by participating in the WWF Environmental Paper Company Index 2013. This is over a third of the 70 companies invited, up from 15 in 2011. They have voluntarily disclosed the footprints of 40 product categories, reporting on targets and performance in impacts on forest ecosystems, emissions and their Environmental Management Systems. The 25 companies between them produce 14 percent of each of the world’s tissue, paper & board, and pulp. The paper industry is key to conserving forests in an age of resource scarcity and land-use competition. It needs ambitious goals and maximum transparency to continue the progress of recent decades.
