Although no paper purchasing policy is currently available, SLU is working on integrating sustainable practices in this area. We support the use of environmentally and socially preferable products wherever possible through the balance of economic feasibility and environmental responsibility. We recommend using services and companies with strong commitments to sustainability. Additionally, we communicate our purchasing recommendations online (example: "Printer and copier paper that's 30-100% recycled content")
