fsjpegWhen it comes to the sustainability of the Graphic Communications Value Chain, it’s important to separate verifiable facts from opinions and misleading information. Fortunately, Two Sides (www.twosides.us) has the resources that can help.

Two Sides has posted nine new 2-page Fact Sheets related to the sustainability of print and paper. Written in clear, easy-to-understand language and including citations to verifiable sources, these Fact Sheets make it easy to understand that print, paper, and packaging have a great environmental story to tell.

Below you’ll find a quick summary of each of the nine new Fact Sheets, plus a link leading to the fact sheet itself.  Please feel free to share these valuable resources with colleagues, customers, students and local media. You can be part of Two Sides’ efforts to end the harmful practice of “greenwashing” (using inflated, inaccurate, or misleading data to misrepresent environmental performance).  Check out the facts, then click through for the downloadable Fact Sheets:

FACT: “Go Green – Go Paperless” and “Save-a-Tree” claims are misleading and may not meet best practices for environmental marketing.  These marketing messages ignore the highly sustainable nature of print on paper – it comes from a renewable resource, is recyclable and recycled more than any other commodity in the U.S. and has great carbon characteristics. Learn More

FACT: Anti-paper environmental claims are often inaccurate and should be challenged. After research showed that more than half of America’s leading banks, utilities and telecommunications companies are using misleading anti-paper environmental marketing claims, Two Sides began its “myth-busting” campaign. To date, more than 40% of those contacted have eliminated unsubstantiated anti-paper claims from their marketing. Learn More

FACT: E-Media also have environmental impacts. A recent study estimates that developing countries will produce at least twice as much electronic waste (e-waste) as developed countries within the next six to eight years. Uncontrolled toxic emissions can result from the informal recycling practices often used in the developing world; these emissions can include dioxins, furans, and cyanide. Learn More

FACT: The carbon footprint of paper is not as high as you may think. The U.S. forest products industry is a leader in the production of renewable energy, with more than 65% of the on-site energy needed to produce paper products derived from carbon-neutral biomass. Learn More

FACT: Sustainable forest management benefits people and the planet. In addition to replenishing the supply of recycled fiber, the U.S. paper industry’s perpetual use of trees harvested from responsibly managed forests has a host of economic, social and environmental benefits. Learn More

FACT: Paper is one of the most recycled products in the world. In 2012, nearly 51 million tons or 65.1% of the paper used in the United States was recovered for recycling, up 76% since 1990. The industry’s new recovery goal is to exceed 70% by 2020. Learn More

FACT: Most of the energy used to make pulp and paper is renewable. The print and paper industry accounts for only 1% of global carbon dioxide emissions; at a global level, the greenhouse gas emissions from the forest products industry value chain are largely offset by sequestration in forests and forest products. Learn More

FACT: Paper is one of the few truly sustainable products. Paper is made from a natural resource that is renewable, recyclable and compostable; in the United States, paper is recycled more than any other commodity in the municipal solid waste stream, including plastics, glass and metals. Learn More

FACT: Paper supports sustainable forest management. The income U.S. landowners receive for products grown on their land—including wood for papermaking—encourages them to maintain, renew and manage this valuable resource sustainably, instead of converting forestland to non-forest uses. Learn More

Led by sustainable and responsible forestry, paper production and printing, the U.S. Graphic Communications Value Chain is working to ensure that, in a world of scarce resources, print and paper’s unique recyclable and renewable qualities can be enjoyed for generations to come. By sharing these Fact Sheets, you can help Two Sides U.S. and its member companies strengthen the paper, packaging, print, and related industries—and make an important contribution to real environmental sustainability.

Although many of the “save a tree” messages are printed on bills and envelopes, consumers don’t differentiate between different paper products.  These messages are a major driver of public perception about all paper and print products.  If your company’s business and livelihood relies on print and paper, I can guarantee that this message is not helpful.  It’s not only on bills, it’s on websites, emails, Youtube videos… it’s even printed on the back of buses and in bus stops!  Major corporate marketing departments are spreading their views on paper far and wide to promote lower cost e-billing and e-statements.  These claims are harming our industry and the livelihood of millions of Americans who work in the paper value chain, from the family forest owner to the direct mail company.

Watch out not to get hit by the anti-paper bus!

Watch out not to get hit by the anti-paper bus!

As a private forest owner and someone who has made a career in the forest products industry, I have a personal agenda and a business reason to have these claims removed or changed.  Based on our recent Two Sides member satisfaction survey, I also know that the vast majority of our members feel the same way.

Banks, utilities and telecoms (among others) willingly take our money and, at the same time, their marketing departments spew out “anti-paper” slogans to convince consumers to stop using the very products we rely on for our livelihood!  Whatever happened to the basic rule that says “don’t bite the hand that feeds you”?

The Good News

It appears that many Americans are seeing behind the “greenwash”.   This was evident from our latest Nationwide survey  where we asked US consumers how they felt about the “go green – go paperless” message.

1) Half of consumers surveyed do not believe, feel misled by or question the validity of such claims.

2) 84% agreed that paperless bills and statements are being promoted to reduce costs.

In another recent study of paper versus electronic services done by Infotrends on behalf of Consumer for Paper Options, 80% of US consumers said it was not appropriate for companies to cite environmentalism when it is not their real motive.

clickThis data is greatly helping our campaign to challenge and remove the claims.  As of today, we have engaged with 61 companies, 17 of which have removed their anti-paper environmental claims.  Most of our discussions with corporate marketing and legal staff have been productive.  Due to the size of the companies and the attempt to “turn the ship”, patience and persistence is key.

A progress report on our campaign is available to Two Sides members.

The Bad News

“Go Paperless – Go Green” claims still create a misleading view of print and paper products for many people.  They link paper to permanent forest loss or deforestation and they suggest that not using paper will save forests.

Truth is: Paper comes from a renewable resource and is highly recyclable.  US forest area has been stable and growing.  There is 49% more wood volume than 50 years ago.  Forest loss is caused by urbanization and development, not forestry.  In fact, US pulp, paper and other wood products provide an incentive for forest owners to retain well-managed forests instead of converting the land to non-forest use.  If our forestland loses its economic value, it will gradually disappear in favor of other land uses.

The green claims also suggest that using electronic media instead of paper will help the environment.  However, over its life cycle, electronic media has many environmental impacts that are sometimes unknown and often ignored when companies make the switch from paper to electronic.  The interplay between paper products and electronic services is complex and depends on many variables.  For example, in many cases the use of paper is just shifted to the consumer with 34% of people printing statements or bills at home.

The role of Two Sides is to ensure people and corporations receive both sides of the story and the science behind our facts.  In the end, it’s not rocket science and many people understand the environmental, social and economic value of paper products.

After all, 72% of people we polled said that when print on paper is responsibly produced, used and recycled, it can be an environmentally sustainable way to communicate.

Over the last year, Two Sides made the transformation from new kid on the block to familiar advocate for the sustainability of print on paper.  Our membership continues to grow and our collective voice is getting stronger every day.  Even more exciting, we’ve extended our reach and effectiveness where it really counts – to the C-suites of many major U.S. companies and to American consumers.   Following the strategic guidance of the Two Sides U.S. Board of Directors, our ambitious 2012-2013 Marketing and Communications Plan built on past successes and incorporated new efforts to put an end to anti-paper environmental marketing claims and share the news that Print and Paper Have a Great Environmental Story to Tell.

Membership – As of July 1, 2013, 2013, Two Sides U.S. has 60 commercial members  from across the Graphic Communications Supply Chain, including paper producers, merchants, printers, envelope manufacturers, and 34 allied organizations and partner members.  Internationally, the Two Sides network includes more than 1,000 members.

Paperless Claims Initiative Two Sides launched this nationwide education effort in July 2012 to encourage leading U.S. companies to end the use of unsubstantiated marketing claims that electronic billing and customer communications are better for the environment than paper communications.  The campaign initially engaged about 50 companies, primarily in the financial services, telecommunications and utilities industries. While time-consuming, our systematic educational approach is working. Ten companies have removed their anti-paper environmental claims and we are currently in discussions with several others.  In March 2013, we launched Phase II of this initiative with a second round of communications.  With input from members and others, our potential target list has grown to more than 200 companies.   This initiative is patterned after a similar, highly successful program conducted by Two Sides in the United Kingdom.

TS US PrintSolutions002 10 875H x 8 125Wmm  col woman 2_4_13Ad Campaign To address misconceptions about the sustainability of print on paper identified by Two Sides research, the No Wonder You Love Paperad campaign was designed to educate consumers that print media is sustainable, made from a renewable resource and supports sustainable forest management, and to promote the reading experience and enjoyment of printed magazines and newspapers.   The campaign includes a user-friendly companion website for consumers (www.youlovepaper.info/us). To date, several ads have appeared in Print Solutions and Gravure magazine.  The first consumer-facing ads appeared in the digital version of Inc. magazine in April and most recently in the June issue of National Geographic.  Over the next year, Two Sides is seeking free advertising space in business, trade and consumer magazines and newspapers.

Response to Anti-Paper Initiatives – In addition to its focused campaign on addressing paperless claims, Two Sides often responds to new initiatives aimed at encouraging consumers to “go paperless” for environmental reasons.  Most notable during the past year were responses to Toshiba’s proposed “No Print Day” and Google’s participation in the Paperless2013 initiative. Both were successful in removing anti-paper green messages thanks to the actions of Two Sides and it’s allies.

Two Sides U.S. websiteWebsite – The Two Sides website, www.twosides.us, continued to be a valuable resource for members and the general public, providing the latest news, research, case studies, tools and useful facts about the sustainability of print and paper.  We added a new section on Environmental Marketing Best Practices for Print and Paperin late 2012 and will be adding a new section on Responsible Production and Use of Print and Paper in the coming months. The site is updated monthly and members receive email notification of new items that have been added.  For the quarter ended March 31, 2013, the website had more than 10,000 visits.  There are about 400 visits per week to the site.

Chuck Ruffing, Director, Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability for Eastman Kodak Company

For many, fall begins the annual budget cycle and the opportunity to review freshly worded business justifications for employee headcounts, initiatives, capital spends, subscriptions and, yes, memberships.  With a year’s experience behind us, an ongoing membership in Two Sides is a commitment I can make without hesitation. Some might think Two Sides is an unusual choice for Kodak.  In fact, as I write we are one of a very few printing equipment company in its US membership.

Like many companies, we buy a lot of paper for our own use.  And, some may not realize it, but we also sell a lot of paper including inkjet paper, photographic paper, proofing paper and paper used in packaging and manuals. As Two Sides members, we enjoy access to research, tools and experts that have helped us strengthen our product standards for purchased and manufactured papers, and enhance our supplier selection process. Although this has been immensely valuable, it’s not the whole story.

Industry associations come in many styles. Some bring laser focus to one sector’s specific needs, while others are designed to expose a broad membership to the very best practices in industry. Two Sides is of a third, perhaps rarer, variety focusing on a single, complete supply chain. A natural complement to Kodak’s own life cycle-based product philosophy, Two Sides, like Kodak, believes the best solutions come from looking across every stage from materials selection to end-of-life management.  Kodak is clearly not as big a player in the world of paper as many of the other Two Sides members, but when you take the life cycle view, you see that paper is clearly a big player in the world of printing equipment.

In addition to its focus on the entire supply chain, Two Sides prioritizes balanced, credible and science-based approaches; values Kodak also shares.  Without hesitation, we immediately utilized the Two Sides educational materials with customers and at trade shows enhancing our promise to be full partners in our customers’ pursuit of sustainability. Membership has meant we stay focused on our B2B customers knowing Two Sides is educating consumers and other sectors through initiatives like its soon-to-be-launched “No Wonder You Love Paper” and Get the Facts campaigns. It’s a unique partnership that I believe is only possible when we take a supply chain view.

Kudos to Steve Brocker of Western States Envelope & Label who defined the issue so well in his Oct 16th Two Sides blog.  We have not done a very good job of educating the public on the environmental story of paper, which should be the ultimate case study on forest preservation, economic benefit and life cycle analysis. We (and I mean the entire supply chain) need to change the perception of print and paper.  With credibility and objectivity, Two Sides is tackling that. I fully expect their efforts will contribute to a change in understanding that will flow through the value chain to sustain the printed word.

Chuck supports compliance to both operations and products at Kodak worldwide, as well as coordinating sustainability initiatives throughout the company.  Chuck is also a member of the board of trustees for the Central and Western New York chapter of The Nature Conservancy.  He also writes for Kodak’s “Grow Your Biz”.

The text below is taken from our first annual report published here

Two Sides U.S. Annual Report (July 2011 – July 2012)

The past year has been a busy and exciting time for Two Sides.  Our membership continues to grow as companies across the Graphic Communications Supply Chain recognize the value of speaking with one clear voice about the sustainability of print and paper.   Our reach and effectiveness continue to grow, too.   With our master strategy approved by the Two Sides U.S. Board of Directors and an ambitious Marketing/Communications Plan in place, we’ve effectively used in-person presentations, the news media, advertising, targeted campaigns,  printed materials, social media and our website to share the news that Print and Paper Have a Great Environmental Story to Tell. 

Membership – As of July 31, 2012, Two Sides U.S. has 43 commercial members  from across the Graphic Communications Supply Chain, including paper producers, merchants, printers, envelope manufacturers and a host of allied organizations and partner members.  Internationally, the Two Sides network includes more than 1,000 members in over 12 countries.

Website – Following our initial membership effort in 2011, the Two Sides website, www.twosides.us, officially launched in January 2012.  The site is a vast and valuable resource for members and the general public, providing the latest news, research, case studies, tools and useful facts about the sustainability of print and paper.  The site is update twice monthly and members receive email notification of new items that have been added.  For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the website had more than 5,000 visits.  There are about 420 visits per week or roughly 60 visits per day to the site.

Member Support – Two Sides supported its members’ efforts to promote the responsible production and use of print and paper throughout the year with a variety of presentations, materials and other resources available on the Member Only sections of our website

Research – In September 2011, Two Sides commissioned Ipsos, a global market research company, to conduct a multi-country survey that included 500 U.S. respondents classified by age and gender.  The survey found that 70% of Americans, including 69% of 18- to 24-year-olds, say it’s nicer to read print and paper communications than reading off a screen.   Most of those surveyed also believe that paper records are more sustainable than electronic record storage (68%) and that paper is more pleasant to handle and touch than other media (67%).  But survey results also showed that many Americans still have misconceptions about the environmental impacts of print and paper.  Survey results were publicized in the news media and on Two Sides social media sites.

Ad Campaign –To address the misconceptions identified in the Two Sides research, the No Wonder You Love Paper ad campaign was designed to educate consumers that print media is sustainable, made from a renewable resource, supports sustainable forest management, and to promote the reading experience and enjoyment of printed magazines and newspapers.   The campaign which will be launched in the summer and fall of 2012, includes a very user-friendly companion consumer website.   Two Sides is seeking free advertising space in business and trade magazines and newspapers.

Paperless Claims Initiative Two Sides launched this nationwide education effort in July 2012 to encourage leading U.S. companies to end the use of unsubstantiated marketing claims that electronic billing and customer communications are better for the environment than paper communications.  The campaign will engage about 100 companies, primarily in the financial services, telecommunications and utilities industries and will run through December 2013.   This effort is patterned after a similar, highly successful program conducted by Two Sides in the United Kingdom.

Myths and Fact Sheets – Two Sides published and regularly updates a series of fact sheets that cite well-known, credible sources to dispel the common myths about the sustainability of print and paper.  The fact sheets are available to anyone on the Two Sides website at www.twosides.us/mythsandfacts.

Myths and Facts Brochure – To make it easier members to share the Myths and Facts about print and paper, Two Sides developed a customizable brochure version of its Myths and Facts series.  High resolution artwork is available to members on the Two Sides website; a low resolution version is available to anyone.

News Media – Two Sides distributed news and information through the media and was featured in a number of business and trade publications.

Social Media – Outreach via social media includes regular posts to LinkedIn, Twitter (twitter.com/twosidesUS) and the Two Sides blog (twosidesus.wordpress.com).  Two Sides currently has approximately 370 LinkedIn group members, 740 Twitter and blog followers.

Conference Participation – Two Sides presented at/participated in more than five conferences and industry meetings over the past 12 months, including 2011 Graph Expo, 2011 and 2012 Gravure Association of America Environmental Workshop, Envelope Manufacturers Association 2012 Spring Meeting, Paperweek  2012, Paper Distribution Council 2011 Meeting, and the 2012 Boise Sustainability Summit.

Webinars and Presentations to Member Companies – Two Sides hosted over a dozen webinars and face-to-face presentations to introduce its members and others to the organization, and to review the many features available on the Two Sides website.  Two Sides also hosted webinars for members and other stakeholders on topics related to the sustainability of print and paper.

Member Satisfaction Survey – In June 2012, Two Sides conducted its first annual member satisfaction survey to gauge member attitudes about the organization’s progress and guide it in refining and expanding its efforts.  We received great feedback and results show that we are on the right track.  Members can access the full report on our Member Page.

World Resource Institute (WRI)/Forest Legality Alliance (FLA) – In July 2012, Two Sides joined the WRI-FLA, a global network dedicated to promoting the demand of forest products of legal origin, and to working with stakeholders along the supply chain to meet that demand.
