Buyers are planning to boost their use of recycled paper over the next five years, according to new research.

Over two-thirds (67 per cent) have targets or plans to increase the paper products using recycled content.

From this number, 51 per cent plan to increase their use by up to a fifth in the next 12 months. A quarter plan to increase it by between 20 and 50 per cent, and a further one in four plan to raise it by 50 to 100 per cent over the same period.

In the long term, 35 per cent plan to increase their use of recycled paper by 50 to 100 per cent in the next two to five years. Another 35 per cent plan to raise their use by 20 to 50 per cent in the same time.

The Waste & Resources Action Programme survey was conducted with paper buyers in 256 UK organisations.
