TEN firms with paper products sold in Singapore have declared that they have not procured or used wood, paper and/or pulp materials from companies suspected to be contributing to the haze pollution, the Singapore Environment Council (SEC) and the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE) said in a joint statement on Monday.
Among them are Canon, Fuji Xerox and Sunlight Paper Products.

|2||Taisin Paper (S) Pte Ltd|
|3||Kimberly-Clark Products (M) Sdn Bhd|
|4||Fudak Sendirian Bhd|
|5||Spot-On Hygiene Pte Ltd|
|6||RJ Paper Pte Ltd|
|7||UPM (China) Co Ltd|
|8||Fuji Xerox Singapore Pte Ltd|
|9||April Fine Paper Trading Pte Ltd|
|10||Canon Singapore Pte Ltd|
This comes after five Indonesian companies were named by the National Environment Agency as possible contributors to the haze pollution.
The list will be regularly updated on both the SEC and CASE websites. SEC and CASE are now awaiting declarations from another seven third-party manufacturers.
"Should any of the listed companies become involved in the purchasing or sourcing of wood, paper and/or pulp products from those suspected to be responsible for the haze pollution, they are bound by the declaration to inform the SEC of their activities and will be promptly removed from the list," they said in the statement.
CASE also urged the consumers to consider supporting only socially responsible firms involved in the purchase or sourcing of wood, paper and pulp products.
