The Course

When the big sustainability topics of the day are carbon emissions, biodiversity loss, and overuse of plastic, how can your production team respond? What questions should you be asking of your printer and supply chain? What impacts do materials commonly used in the publishing industry have?

This training course has been designed to answer those questions, to help you develop and deliver sustainability goals and collect the information your business, customers & stakeholders need. We will look at three key sustainability goals that respond to all these factors, and where production teams can have a positive impact. We’ll look at a stepwise programme and at the useful information that can be gathered as you work towards your goals.
