Does the brand (company) use for at least 70% paper coming from sustainable sources, such as FSC-certified-paper, for its products?

  • Dutch version: Komt tenminste 70% van het papier dat het merk (bedrijf) gebruikt voor zijn producten van duurzame bronnen, zoals FSC-gecertificeerd papier?
  • German version: Verarbeitet der Markenhersteller für Printprodukte mindestens zu 70% Papier aus nachhaltigen Quellen (z.B. FSC-zertifiziertes Papier)?


Since the core activity of print media is to publish their news and articles in papers and magazines, large amounts of paper are used. This paper should come from ‘preferred’ sustainable sources, so we know for sure that the forests are at least managed responsibly or that the paper is 100% recycled. For References and Guidelines see Print Media Ecology Question 1.

Ranking guidelines

Only rank 'yes' when the brand (company) states that at least 70% of the paper used for its products is FSC, PEFC or Preps (5 star grades) certified, or when at least 70% of the paper is 100% recycled and certified by eg Cyclus.
