Australia’s major newspaper and magazine publishers started working together on environmental issues in June 1990, forming an organisation dedicated to advance newspaper recycling.
Decades later, the publishing industry continues this work through The Newspaper Works, and a new body, the Environment Advisory Group.
The members of the Environment Advisory Group are:
- Fairfax Media
- News Corp Australia
- West Australian Newspapers
- APN News & Media
- Pacific Magazines
- Bauer Media
The group works closely in Australia with newsprint manufacturer Norske Skog to develop five-year environment sustainability plans endorsed by all state and federal governments.
