Our distribution policy aims to reduce our carbon footprint. We are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our working practices through continual review of our operations and products. We see this as on ongoing process and regularly review our activities. We subscribe to the following principles in our pursuit of sustainable development:

Employee awareness
All of our staff are committed to ensuring that their working practices are as environmentally sound as possible. From only printing e-mails when absolutely necessary to recycling as many office bi-products as they can, we provide information and appropriate training for all staff.

When purchasing or outsourcing we look closely at our supplier’s environmental credentials and base our decisions on these activities as well as operational and financial criteria. Through doing this we hope to raise awareness of the importance of our environmental procedures and goals to all our stakeholders. We actively pursue open dialogue on environmental issues with our stakeholders at both national and international level.

We integrate environmental considerations into our core business activities. Environmental considerations are central factors in our investment decision, and we integrate sustainable development considerations into our corporate decision-making process. Therefore our environmental distribution policy means observing the mode of delivery in relation to client requirements and the environment i.e. for larger shipments we deliver by sea freight rather than by air, in order to deliver by the most environmentally friendly means possible. We regularly review our suppliers to ensure that they are doing what they can to help create an environmentally sound distribution policy.

We encourage responsible use, reuse and recycling of out products. We use the minimum packaging required in order to deliver our publications to customers in the best condition possible. This means that packages are as light as possible, which lowers carbon emissions during transportation, and it that there is less packaging to be disposed off once it has arrived at its destination. We aim to reduce our waste as much as possible and to promote the recovery; recycling and reuse of our products by helping our customers understand the environmental effects of our products throughout their life cycle.

We respect our publisher’s environmental policies and endeavor to co-operate with them in order to ensure that we follow their policies as closely as possible and promote environmentally friendly methods to them. We also engage with our partners in effective and transparent communication. We operate in accordance with our corporate values and our principles of good business practice, carry out our operations responsibly and develop them in long-term cooperation with our partners.
