HC US accused of rainforest abuse

Primary tabs

HarperCollins US has said it will look to “address any anomalies in our supply chain” after being accused of using paper from endangered rainforests in its children’s books.

The environmental group Rainforest Action Network (RAN) said independent forensic tests revealed fibre used in HC books came from timber logged in Indonesian rainforests, home to rare species such as the Sumatran tiger.
