Annual Materials Consumption

The stacked bar chart displayed on this page shows our annual A4 equivalent paper consumption in reams, for the years 2010 to 2016. Each year's consumption data are divided into paper sourced from plantations, paper containing a percentage of recycled content but less than 100% and paper containing 100% recycled content. The chart highlights that since 2012 the majority of the university's paper has contained 100% recycled content. It also shows that paper consumption overall has been declining each year from 85,423 reams in 2010 to 37,588 reams in 2016, which represents a 56% reduction in total.
