Random House, Lantern Books, Fast Company and Nat’l Wildlife Federation Honored for Environmental Sustainability Efforts
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) was awarded the “Longtime Leader” award among magazine publishers as its National Wildlife magazine was one of the first consumer magazines to use recycled paper. The organization has also supported FSC certification since its founding, and its coated magazine paper contains a minimum of 30-percent post-consumer recycled, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified fiber. The paper also is “whitened” without using any chlorine or chlorine-based compounds. In addition, the National Wildlife Federation engages its supply chain in a dialogue about its environmental concerns and goals. In doing so, it has been instrumental in convincing printers like Quad/Graphics and other small printers and merchants to seek FSC-certification. It has also worked collaboratively with paper manufacturer Stora Enso and environmental nonprofits to develop a new line of FSC-certified, post-consumer recycled papers.
