Sustainability Leadership

Our members have long been good stewards of our planet’s resources.  We produce recyclable products made from a renewable resource, and believe that sustainable practices today will yield positive results for a better tomorrow.

Better Practices, Better Planet 2020 - AF&PA’s sustainability initiative - is a proactive commitment to the long-term success of our industry, our communities, our environment and the nearly 900,000 men and women who make the paper and wood products vital to the lives of people around the world.

The six goals targeted within Better Practices focus on increasing paper recovery for recycling, improving energy efficiency, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, promoting sustainable forestry practices, improving workplace safety and reducing water use.
