Sustainability

We try to make our business more sustainable by considering the sustainability aspects of our most important business decisions.

The impact of our business on the environment predominantly comes from the activities we subcontract to our suppliers including the printing, production, distribution, recycling and disposal of printed books.

To reduce our impact, we adopt the following practices:

  • Use of sustainable paper: most books are printed on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) paper supplies, or, for domestic US printing, we use Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) paper. We estimate 80% of books are printed on sustainable paper.
  • Increasing sustainable operations: we continue to consolidate shipments wherever possible so that the number of journeys made is minimised.
  • Ethical production: we continue to work with our suppliers to adopt ethical standards of manufacture using ICTI Care processes.
