We want our companies to purchase paper with recycled content.
In most of our larger markets, WPP Commercial & Procurement Services identifies preferred paper suppliers which our companies are encouraged to use. Many of our preferred suppliers across our major markets now provide paper and paper products with recycled content. In the UK, around 38% of the paper WPP companies purchased from our preferred paper suppliers contained recycled content. In the US the figure is around 24%, in Australia it is 41% and Hong Kong it is 14%.
On average across all markets, 38% of the paper purchased contained recycled content.
