PREPS: The Publishers database for Responsible Environmental Paper Sourcing

PREPS is a joint initiative from twenty three leading, global publishers. These companies have come together to develop their understanding of responsible paper supply chains.


The group is supported by a database which holds technical specifications and details of the pulps and forest sources of the papers they use. It also holds data on CO2 emissions and water use at the paper mill level.


Based on the forest source information, each paper is awarded a grade of 1, 3, or 5 stars using the PREPS Grading System. This considers the country of origin of the wood fibre and how the forest sources have been managed.

ITC PSPD’s following 8 products are listed and graded in the PREPS database 
  • Bible Printing
