Country guides

These guides summarise the paper mills and latest forest news in each country. They also show the results of the Forest Risk Assessment which is the basis of our paper analysis in the Grading System.

You can sort the countries by risk.

The paper mills shown in the country guides are only those listed in the Book Chain Project, so it may not be an exhaustive list in each country. Listing in these country guides does not constitute any endorsement from the Book Chain Project. Detailed results of product-specific risk assessments are only available to publishers and print suppliers with access to the secure database.
