Facts on the sustainability of paper

FEPE recognises that the envelope industry has a responsibility to continually work on its sustainability credentials.

However, there are many environmental misconceptions surrounding print and paper-based industries.  The consumer has a right to be properly informed. With this purpose in mind FEPE joined forces with Two Sides and other stakeholders to produce the booklet
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts.

In 20 illustrated and reader-friendly pages we address consumer concerns by exploring some of the environmental myths surrounding print and paper-based industries. We explain the facts in order to dispel these misconceptions.

Myths and Facts has been printed and distributed in 5 languages.  Digital versions of the booklet are available for download below:

Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (English)
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (French)
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (German)
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (Dutch)
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (Slovenian)
Print and Paper - Myths and Facts (Spanish)

A sample of some of the facts explored in the book are:

  • European forests have been growing by over 1,500 football pitches every day
  • Paper is one of the few truly sustainable products
  • Electronic communication also has environmental impacts

Two Sides is an initiative to promote the sustainability of the graphic communications supply chain. It provides users with verifiable information on why print and paper is an attractive, practical and sustainable communications medium.
