Green Publishing

A climate impact survey put together by the Book Industry Study Group and the Green Press Initiative, reveals that 60% of publishers have, or are working on, an environmental policy, as reported by the AP. Publishers are taking a range of approaches, from “Hyperion switching to soy-based ink, to Penguin Group (USA) using wind power, to Scholastic, Inc. printing the deluxe edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on 100 percent post-consumer waste fiber. Simon & Schuster and the Hachette Book Group USA are among those using e-book readers instead of paper manuscripts. The Random House Publishing Group is experimenting with sending books online to media outlets.”
