    Nature group helps Epson with ‘green’ purchasing
    The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Japan has helped Epson produce an ethical paper purchasing policy.
    WWF
    has assisted the Japanese printer and paper manufacturer to establish a
    new policy that ensures wood used in its paper has not been illegally
    logged and comes from sustainable sources. It also incorporates
    previous company guidelines on not using harmful chemicals in the
    production process.It will be applied to paper produced in Japan
    immediately and to that produced overseas by 2008. Epson wants complete
    compliance with the policy by 2010.Epson asked WWF for assistance after
    reading an earlier report by the group on ethical paper procurement. It
    explored the need for a balance between use and conservation of
    forests, and how to use wood in a more appropriate way.
