Foreign Office meets target

Foreign Office meets target

This month, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office started meeting its procurement target for publications paper.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) had set the Foreign and Commonwealth Office a series of quick-win targets. One was to ensure that paper purchased for all publications was 60% recycled, of which a minimum was 75% post-consumer waste.

In a House of Commons written answer, MP Bill Rammell, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, said: From the beginning of May this year we have been meeting the publications paper target.

The department aimed to meet its copying paper target by purchasing 100% recycled with a minimum of 75% post-consumer waste content by autumn.

Rammell added: 93% of copying paper supplied throughout the department in 2002/3 contained at least 80% post-consumer waste.
