DISCLAIMER OF RESPONSIBILITY
Index ratings are based on information received from participating pulp and paper producers. Even though some evidence is required WWF is not verifying this information and relies on accurate data being provided by transparent producers. WWF reserves the right to exclude companies from participating in the EPCI. WWF aims to only feature companies which have assessed themselves as being in compliance with market based legislation and are not involved in major controversial environmental and social issues as defined in the FSC policy of association. The rating on WWF EPCI is not providing a guarantee of legality as required by the Lacey Act or the EU Timber Regulation.
A key foundation of the Index is constructive engagement and accurate data being provided by transparent producers. Participants are required to adhere to EPCI communications code. They are allowed limited off-product communication which needs to be cleared with WWF prior to release. WWF reserves the right to exclude companies from participating in the EPCI at any time in the process, including the right to take the company score pages off the webpage, if the company violates or is suspected of violating the EPCI Communication Code.
