NERC worked cooperatively with the Yellow Pages Publishers Association (YPPA) beginning in 1990 to reduce the environmental impacts of telephone directories. NERC assisted YPPA in developing the organization's Environmental Action Plan, which was subsequently endorsed by NERC. The plan called for an annual report by YPPA on the status of recycled content purchasing efforts, design for recyclability, source reduction and other related environmental issues. Beginning in 1996, NERC worked most closely with directory publishers in the Northeast - Bell Atlantic, NYNEX and Southern New England Telephone, including the sponsorship of forums focused on the status of recycling and waste prevention efforts.
