We use responsibly sourced paper

    Our paper and board is FSC-certified, which means that it comes from well-managed forests. It helps to protect habitats, plant more trees, and look after local people and wildlife. Paper choice is critical – 50% of the emissions associated with the production of a book are determined by the paper used.

    We use vegetable-based inks

    Ink made using oil from vegetables is more environmentally friendly than chemical-based inks, which are made from fossil-fuels that are non-renewable and more harmful to the environment. We use vegetable-based ink in all of our books with the exception of short-run digital printing where this is not possible due to the different set up of the machines.

    Sustainable procurement

    We work with EcoVadis who provide a global system for evaluating and measuring our suppliers in the areas of environment, labour & human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.
