Environmental Paper Network

Our Common Vision for the Paper Industry

The Common Vision for Transforming the Paper Industry presents goals for transforming the way in which paper is produced and consumed and consists of:

The Common Vision was originally drafted by the Center for a New American Dream, Conservatree, Co-op America (now Green America), Dogwood Alliance, Environmental Defense Fund, ForestEthics, the Green Press Initiative, Markets Initiative (Now Canopy), Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Recycled Products Purchasing Cooperative.

The Common Vision principles have now been endorsed by more than 100 organizations around the world. To join them, become of member of the Environmental Paper Network.

A companion document was developed for Europe by the European Environmental Paper Network.

Progress towards this Common Vision is monitored by the EPN’s State of the Industry Report.
