The Nature ConservancyAiming to ensure that today's forest lands are there for tomorrow's generations, in 2006, Xerox pledged $1 million to The Nature Conservancy to advance sustainable forestry practices with the objective of developing science-based tools, practices and systems that the paper industry can draw upon to better understand and manage ecologically important forest land. Xerox also offers a range of recycled paper options, as well as High Yield Business PaperTM, a first-of-its-kind mechanical fiber paper for digital printing that uses half as many trees as the traditional digital paper production process.

In addition to the Canadian boreal forest, the partnership is focusing on the forests of the southern United States, Indonesia and Brazil's Atlantic Forest.
The agreement reflects the efforts of both organizations to broaden the scope of global conservation by working with and supporting private-sector and non-governmental organizations.
