The questionnaire has evolved over time with input from EPCI participants. As the method is consistent between 2013 and 2015 the overall results are presented in a historical timeline format. This is also intended for future editions of the EPCI to credit progress and continual improvement of individual companies but also of an entire sector.
Where context changes make a direct comparison difficult this is noted. On some issues WWF has highlighted significant improvements on detailed parameters if authorized by the company.
The WWF Environmental Paper Company Index is published biannually. It credits transparency and continual improvement over time and does not directly compare companies. WWF invites other companies to disclose their performance at any time between now and EPCI 2017.
