Download the scoring tool we use to assess mill performance on responsible sourcing, environmental management, and human resources management. This information is fed back to the mills, alongside useful resources to drive improvement.
Our reports, documents and tools share what we have learnt about better book supply chains.
In 2018, The Book Chain Project began the first step towards deeper engagement with paper mills. We wanted to better understand how our mills manage responsible paper sourcing, to increase our efforts to halt illegal logging. To do this we developed our mill assessment process which allows us to set out our long-term expectations and start a dialogue. By identifying mills with the desire and intent to improve, the output from this initiative will help us better support their development.
