The Environmental Paper Assessment Tool (EPAT) is an innovative assessment tool that allows
buyers and sellers of paper products to evaluate environmental performance data along the paper
supply chain. By providing a consistent framework and metrics, EPAT creates the opportunity for
informed discussion about the environmental attributes and trade-offs involved in paper purchasing
decisions. EPAT was developed by the sustainability nonprofit GreenBlue in collaboration with
leading paper buyers and suppliers.
GreenBlue is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to the sustainable use of materials in society.
