Hachette Book Group Releases Environmental Progress Report
Protecting Endangered Forests
Our goal in this area is to phase out the use of any controversial sources of paper fiber and require our paper to be free of unacceptable sources as defined by FSC’s controlled wood standard. The primary concern in 2010 was around books produced in Asia that contained pulp sourced from tropical rainforests in Indonesia. We have changed sources of supply as certain mills have demonstrated inconsistencies in their chain of custody. We will continue to monitor our future sources of supply, and to keep close watch on both domestic and international controversies and take action in line with our policy.
