The article discusses the need for the printing industry to reduce carbon emissions in Europe. The author mentions that paper is often the single biggest source of a print job's carbon dioxide emissions, making it the easy target for green social groups. She added that end users of print are more aware of the damage that paper production can cause with the help of the green social groups, and they have put pressure on their print suppliers to use more environmentally friendly paper grades.
