Recycled paper production not only protects resources, it also produces less wastewater and uses less water and energy as compared to the production of virgin-fibre paper. Blue Angel-labelled print products guarantee that - if a proportion of virgin fibres it used - it comes from sustainably managed forests and forest management companies meeting high ecological standards. Use of timber from forests particularly worthy of protection, such as, for example, tropical or boreal primeval forests, shall be unacceptable.
Benefits to health and environment
- protection of resources due to high percentages of recycled paper
- drop in waste volumes due to the recycling of post-consumer paper products
- if certain proportions of primary or virgin fibres are used the wood must be from sustainably managed forests
