A4 PAPER CONSUMPTION TREND
2011-12 TO 2018-19
It is notable that the quantity of recycled paper used counted for 42% of total paper consumption, a growth of almost 22%. It was encouraging to see that more departments and offices switched to recycled paper; however, we will continue to work on minimizing the paper use for printing, and when paper is necessary, to use recycled content.
