01 April 2014

EcoFolio, the French paper recycling compliance scheme, has published a guide titled, "Understanding Logos and Environmental Standards for Paper Products." The publication was prepared with assistance from the French Environment and Energy Management Agency.
According to EcoFolio, the guide makes it easy for businesses and governments implementing a responsible purchasing policy to use products with low environmental impact. The guide covers ecolabels relating to the origin of paper fiber and to finished products, marks and standards used at paper production sites, the use of logos for favorability in green procurement and a glossary of terms (Recycling Laws International, 21 March 2014).
