Effective Public Policies Improve Environmental Performance, Not Penalize Environmentally Friendly Magazines
MPA’s long-standing involvement in environmental matters stems from its members’ desire to support and implement responsible and economically sound environmental policies and procedures related to the full lifecycles of our magazine products, from raw materials to well-read copies. MPA monitors key environmental developments on the federal, state, and international levels.
MPA’s primary areas of concern include sustainable forestry practices and certification standards, minimizing the impact of pulp and paper production processes, promoting the recovery of used magazines and other used paper for recycling, and encouraging consumers to recycle more magazines.
