Profile

Shandong Chenming Paper Holdings is a Chinese holding company for diverse industries but operates primarily in pulp and paper. It manufactures a variety of paper products including printing paper, packaging, newsprint, and specialty papers. With an annual pulp and paper capacity of 8.5 million tons, the company is one of the largest in China for the pulp and paper industry. Furthermore, it is in the top 50 of pulp and paper companies worldwide in terms of sales value. Though the company primarily uses chips and recovered material in production, it also imports raw materials internationally. It therefore has a high risk of exposure to tropical wood in its supply chain.
