BARCELONA, June 2, 2011 (Press Release) -World Environment Day is a global event that seeks to promote positive environmental action. As 2011 was declared the International Year of Forests, the theme "Forests: Nature at Your Service" was chosen to encourage forest conservation and the sustainable management of forest resources that permits environmentally friendly growth.

Forests provide invaluable ecological, economic, social and health benefits as well as playing a key role in the battle against climate change. Mindful of this, Torraspapel, part of the Lecta Group, carries out numerous actions involving forest conservation and their environmental promotion. Forest restoration is a pillar of this social and environmental commitment. Since 2004, Torraspapel has continuously promoted, in collaboration with the NGO AccióNatura, reforestation programs and volunteer days in which customers, employees and their families have all participated, resulting in the planting of more than 20,500 trees on the Iberian Peninsula and in Brazil. Torraspapel also participates in the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) "Plant for the Planet" by including its reforestation projects in the campaign and as the paper of choice for the campaign's print communications in Spain.

We all must take responsibility for promoting the use of environmentally friendly products. In this sense, Torraspapel guarantees the responsible origin of the wood sourced in manufacturing its products and can verify that this wood comes solely from legal and non-controversial sources, all of which are either certified or controlled. Proof of this is the PEFC and FSC multi-site chain-of-custody certifications held for all of its production.

Support for World Environmental Day falls within the framework of Torraspapel's commitment to social responsibility and environmental sustainability as reflected in its mission and corporate values.
