New paper policy at Globe

An internal “green team” at The Globe and Mail is set to implement a new paper policy at the newspaper, the company announced.

According to a press release, the policy will “will eliminate the use of papers derived from high conservation value forests.”

The Globe also said it plans to work with suppliers to “progressively maximize recycled content in all of its papers” and “eliminate the production of persistent organic pollutants or chlorine bleach.”

As well, internal practices that encourage less paper use and more recycling will be put into place.
