Value of Transparency

WWF recognizes other transparency initiatives such as CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) for encouraging continual improvement. WWF encourages companies to report through CDP and credits this in the EPCI.

Next EPCI: 2017

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.
