CHICAGO (October 2, 2012) – Two Sides today announced that Dovetail Partners Inc. has joined the organization as an allied partner and that Dovetail’s Executive Director Kathryn Fernholz will become a member of the Two Sides U.S. Sustainability Committee.

“Dovetail’s science-based approach and reputation as a trusted source of environmental information makes them a perfect fit with Two Sides and our efforts to promote the responsible production, use and sustainability of print and paper,” says Two Sides U.S. President Phil Riebel.  “And we couldn’t be more thrilled to have Katie Fernholz join our Sustainability Committee.  Her wide-ranging experience and expertise in development and natural resources issues, especially sustainable forestry management, is a terrific addition to our committee of sustainability experts.”

“Dovetail’s mission is to provide authoritative information about the impacts and trade-offs of environmental decisions, including consumption choices, land use and policy alternatives,” says Fernholz.  “Our collaboration with Two Sides will give us new opportunities to help clarify complex environmental issues related to the use of print and paper and in doing so, to increase people’s understanding of and their capacity to make good business decisions related to this communications medium.”

Paper is the most recycled commodity in the world. The wood fiber used to make paper is one of the earth’s few truly renewable resources. The demand for responsibly managed forests to make print and paper products provides a long-term financial incentive for private landowners to manage their lands sustainably instead of selling them for development. The print, paper and mail value chain contributes millions of jobs to the U.S. economy.
