The Monsoon Books paper procurement and usage policy supports the use of environmentally sustainable fiber use, reducing pollution and conserving natural resources through recycling and waste reduction. In order to produce materials responsibly we have adopted high standards for the procurement of paper. We actively work with our suppliers to maximize the efficient use of paper and reduce consumption.
We are continually reviewing and strengthening our book paper sourcing policy and reacting to input from all independent environmental organisations. We appreciate and respond to all advice and encouragement to continually move forward and strengthen our environmental policies.
We only use FSC® certified materials in the UK, where over 90% of our books are printed, and we use FSC® certified materials in Singapore where available for the remainder of our printing, which constitutes less than 10% of our printing.
Going forward, as availability improves in Singapore, our aim is to print 100% of our books on FSC certified materials.
We also work to minimise our environmental impact and are committed to reducing our overall use of fibre and raw materials consumed in the production of paper wherever possible.
