The Canadian Magazine Industry Sets the Bar for Environmental Policies
Canopy's ongoing work with the Canadian magazine industry has gained substantial ground: we have reached critical mass in Canada: all four of the country's major consumer magazine conglomerates enacting environmental paper procurement policies.
Rogers Publishing, Transcontinental Inc., St. Joseph Communications and TVA Publishing have developed eco-paper policies with a preference for recycled and FSC-certified fibre. These industry giants represent over one quarter of the total paper volume used by consumer magazines. The impact of their shift to eco-paper will be a huge benefit to forest conservation initiatives.
Protecting Canadian Content
Our cutting edge work with the magazine sector in Canada leads the way for magazines internationally. Today:
-More than 180 Canadian magazines are committed to protecting forests by giving preference to recycled, FSC fibre and or agricultural waste fibre
-Many more magazines including Canadian Geographic, Canadian Art, Maclean's, Chatelaine, ON NATURE, Breathe a.s.c and Alive print on paper with 10-50% recycled content
-More than 30 magazine printers stock or source Ancient Forest Friendly™ or FSC papers
As of April 2011
