It’s no secret that at TPH, we care about the impact our products have on the environment. We’ve worked hard to create a culture that puts sustainability at the top of the priority list. We strive to be a role model in the industry when it comes to paper procurement and the selection of eco-friendly papers we offer our customers. Our personal impact on tree based ecosystems has been reduced by achieving forest based Chain of Custody (CoC) Certifications as well as other prominent certifications in the printing industry.
We’ve also taken steps to ensure that most, if not all, the paper used by our company has a lower impact on the environment through our Paper Procurement Policy. This policy solidifies our commitment to not sourcing fibre from paper from endangered forest ecosystems. As a first step towards this we are looking at opportunities to increase our purchase and use of paper with maximized recycled content.
Environmental not-for-profit Canopy recently released its Ecopaper Database, a list of leading ecopapers available in North America. Canopy selected these papers based on the Paper Steps model endorsed by the Environmental Paper Network. The list includes Ancient Forest Friendly™, recycled, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) certified, and other top ecopapers available on the market.
After viewing this awesome resource, we compiled our own list to help let you know which of these papers are available to you through TPH. See the full list below*:
*For full details on these papers and their environmental content, view the complete Ecopaper Database.
We work closely with Canopy to ensure that we are not sourcing from ancient and endangered forest hotspots such as caribou habitat in the Boreal, old growth in the Pacific North West and Indonesia. We are continuously working to verify the forest of origin of the paper we purchase.
If you’re interested in using any of these paper for an upcoming project, contact your TPH Manager to discuss your options!
