Choosing Papers and Vendors

The Paper Steps, a hierarchy of environmentally preferable papers developed by the Environmental Paper Network (EPN). This simple chart helps users comprehend the hierarchy of minimum criteria, providing a bad-good-better-best comparison for paper purchasers. Use this tool to evaluate current paper purchases and decide where improvements can be made.

Organizations with established purchasing agreements that are unable to source papers listed in the hierarchy can confirm virgin fiber sources with suppliers and manufacturers using EPN's Pulp Tracking Form or Environmental Defense Fund's Annual Paper Supplier Evaluation Form.

World Wildlife Fund's Paper Scorecard is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ tool for scoring all paper grades. It focuses on a limited number of major social and environmental attributes, including: sustainable forest management, recycled content, manufacturing process improvements, climate change, solid wastes, and bleaching processes. Use this tool to help rank a variety of papers available to institutional purchasers.
