Q.1120: Is Paper Green?
Ans. Paper is made from renewable raw material and is an indispensable part of our civilization. Paper industry directly uses only 11% of the wood extracted from forests, is not mainly responsible for forest depletion and to a good extent compensates through social forestry measures. Paper is a sustainable product and paper industry has majorly reduced its environmental impact especially in the last decade. Recycled fibre and wood fibre from well managed forests are both essential to sustain the paper life cycle. Paper continues to evolve and continuously innovate to respond to ever changing needs and meeting the requirements of society. From the cradle to the grave, paper making process supports environment and is sustainable. PAPER IS GREEN!
