The Common Vision

In 2002 the Environmental Paper Network, a coalition of American and Canadian environmental organizations, produced the Common Vision for Transforming the Paper Industry. The Common Vision has been signed by close to 100 groups, large and small. It presents goals for transforming the way in which paper is produced and consumed and consists of:

1. A treatise that is meant to unify the efforts of environmental organizations in advancing environmental and social responsibility within the paper production and consumption cycle.
2. A guidance to best practices for manufacturers, governments, purchasers, and suppliers.
3. Guidelines for environmentally preferable paper purchasing.
4. A hierarchy of pulping and bleaching processes.

We want YOU to read the Common Vision and join us in setting a unified, common goal post for changing paper use and consumption in North America. Go to to sign on.
