Press awarded highest Timber Scorecard rating from WWF

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has today released its 2019 Timber Scorecard report. The report assesses businesses on their timber product sourcing policies and performance and assigns each a score from 0 Trees (no/limited evidence of policies in place) to 3 Trees (performing well against procurement policies). 

We’re delighted to announce that WWF has awarded Cambridge University Press a full score of three out of three trees- the highest rating for sustainable timber performance. This is based on public data on our timber purchasing policy, performance statement and claims made about responsible sourcing of timber this year.

The Press’s Head of Procurement, Helen Griggs, is delighted with the news: ‘It’s a great achievement for the Press and colleagues who ensure our processes and policies are adhered to, as well as everyone who has supported our initiatives over the last couple of years. 

'In 2015, the Press received a 0 Tree score and a Two Trees score in 2017. We then took steps to improve our policies and practices, which were duly acknowledged as evidenced by our new score.'
