 Nippon Paper Group: Please stop using woodchips from native forest
Native forests are the world's best and cheapest carbon stores and are more valuable as homes to wildlife, as water stores and are essential to the survival of our planet. Other Japanese paper companies have made the switch to plantation woodchips, why can't Nippon Paper?

Nippon Paper is one of the biggest 10 paper companies in the world. While it no longer owns the Eden chipmill it continues to buy Eden woodchips from native forests.  It lags behind the other Japanese paper makers, still using native forest woodchips, while others have made the transition to plantations.
