GPO Seeks Sustainable Paper Products

Friday, March 27, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) released a Request for Information (RFI) seeking paper manufacturers and distributors opinions on the most sustainable paper products available for GPO and other federal agencies to review.  This RFI is in response to requests from GPO’s federal customers to find more sustainable paper choices for their printing needs.  Public Printer Bob Tapella will attend Paper Week 2009 in New York City next week to continue the dialogue with the paper industry, which he started a year ago on sustainable paper practices.  The Public Printer held a Paper Industry Day at GPO in 2008 to listen and learn about paper sustainability from paper industry leaders from around the world.  The Public Printer plans to host another Paper Industry Day in 2009.

“I would like GPO to use more environmentally responsible paper, both in our plant and for our agency customers,” said Public Printer Bob Tapella.  “I realize there are challenges in achieving this, and look forward to continuing to hear from the paper industry on ways we all can provide the best sustainable practices available.”
