Welcome to our New Look, Environment Webpage, where you will find a wealth of information about the environmental credentials and initiatives of the Newspaper Industry.
Have a look at our “fast facts” ranging from how virgin newsprint is exclusively sourced from renewable plantation forests, to how old newsprint is recycled back into new papers and the many other uses that that recycled newsprint is used for in the home and in industry.
See also the vital statistics that places Australian Newsprint recycling among the highest in the world and the read the unique industry agreements (the National Environment Sustainability Agreements – NESA) that since 1992 has formed the basis for this impressive achievement.
I hope that you will find it enlightening and hopefully also fun.
