The Goals Database
Responsible Fiber Sourcing
90% of the paper that Verizon sources will be FSC certified by 2017.
Verizon will give purchasing preference to paper suppliers that identify the source of their products and can verify that the products do not contain fiber from ancient/endangered forests or forest types of countries that are known to be problematic.
Verizon will endeavor to minimize the amount of paper it purchases by adopting practices that reduce consumption. Such practices can include (but may not be limited to) reducing the weight of paper being used in a particular process or working to promote electronic communication (such as electronic billings and notifications).
