IU's sustainable purchasing policy prohibits the procurement of products sourced from old growth forests, including paper. The use of post-consumer recycled paper is encouraged when appropriate.
Of the paper purchased by IUPUI, ~10% has some degree of recycled content.
This policy reinforces the university's commitment to reducing energy consumption and the costs associated with it.
