Labour & Environment
Where are the books printed? Are the people working there safe, and are they being treated fairly and respectfully? Is the site minimising its impact on the local environment?
Chemical Safety & Materials
Are restricted chemicals used in the inks, adhesives or varnishes during printing? Are materials, like plastic, used appropriately in the book and along the supply chain?
Where is the paper and board from a book manufactured? What tree fibres do they contain and where were those trees harvested? Are the forests well-managed and sustained for the future?
