Australia’s paper and paperboard manufacturing industry continued its role as a global sustainability leader in 2016. The industry is committed to improving its sustainability and to communicating its progress on the sustainability journey to its stakeholders. Members of the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) either improved their sustainability performance in 2016, or maintained it, where performance is already at global best practice levels.

It does so using verifiable and consistent data and with methodologies that meet Australian and international standards.
