“Instead of asking detailed questions, like ‘how many tons of recycled fiber are you using?’, we’re now just asking if publishers and printers plan to use more or less in the next year,” Says Bill Rojack, Co-Chair of the BIEC. He adds “This will allow us to track general trends, while making it much easier to complete the surveys.” There are three separate surveys one each for publishers, printer and paper manufacturers which are available at the links below: Publisher Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015_biec_publisher Printer Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015_biec_printer Paper Manufacturer Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015_biec_paper_manufacturer
