These surveys will help us track the environmental performace of the books industry. All survey data will remain strictly confidentail and surveys will remain anynomous unless you choose to submit optional contact information. Only aggregate data and industry averages will be publically reported. No information about the responses of any individual company will be collected, stored or reported by the BIEC.

All publishers, printers and paper manufacturers that are involved in the production of books are encouraged to participate in the surveys. To avoid double counting any data please ensure that only one response is submitted for each company.
