Why and how publishers should aim for a greener supply chain

 As ‘climate change’ has been replaced by the more accurate term ‘climate crisis’, book publishers must take direct and clear actions in order to mitigate the harmful impact of legacy business practices by implementing new environmentally responsible systems. Today’s industry often relies on large print runs and long shipping routes in order to reach worldwide markets, while at the same time polluting the air and water, wasting energy and natural resources, and causing irreversible harm to the environment.
