Carbon Emissions, Biodiversity Loss & Plastic Overuse in the Book Publishing Industry
How does a book production team respond to the big sustainability topics?
What questions should you be asking of your printer and supply chain? What impacts do materials commonly used in the publishing industry have?
This half day seminar 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.
