Reduce greenhouse gas emissions

  • Reduce total energy consumption and high emission energy sources.
  • Change from fossil fuels and other high emission energy sources, including from unsustainable biomass, to only responsibly-produced low-emission biomass and other renewable energy sources.
  • Reduce soil emissions, particularly from peatlands and other high carbon stock soils.
  • Maintain and enhance carbon storage in managed forests and other ecosystems.
  • Promote technological innovations and design production systems that increase energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Apply greenhouse gas reduction goals and regular reporting which accurately accounts for the landscape and biogenic greenhouse gas emissions of paper production, including carbon debt.
