Additional documentation to support the submission:

UCI adopted a far-reaching 100% post-consumer recycled paper policy in 2014, the first such policy in the UC system and one of most far-reaching of any university in California. As a result, campus control points and copy vendors purchase 100% recycled paper for all standard printing and copying needs. Implementation includes strategic sourcing in partnership with the recycled paper suppliers to provide competitive pricing to the campus community and an outreach program to educate the campus community on recycled paper quality and attributes.

Data reported above is based on primary paper supplier data.
