(Media-Newswire.com) - WASHINGTON, Oct.15, 2009 - HP today announced it has joined the Global Forest & Trade Network in North America ( GFTN-NA ), a World Wildlife Fund ( WWF ) initiative linking more than 300 companies globally that share a commitment to responsible forestry.
By becoming a member of the GFTN, HP has committed to progressively increase the amount of responsibly harvested fiber used in its paper products and sold globally. HP has set a target of 40 percent of its paper sales from Forest Stewardship Council-certified or post-consumer recycled sources by 2011.
As part of meeting these goals, HP will be engaging with suppliers and informing customers of its commitment. WWF will provide technical assistance toward reaching these goals.
