The Book Chain Project is a collaboration of over 25 publishers, 270 paper mill groups and 470 supplier groups (predominantly printers) to make the supply chains of printed books and journals more sustainable.
This digital report was created to provide consistent guidance for publishers to calculate GHG emissions in their own operations and upstream and downstream value chains. It provides methodologies consistent with recommendations from the GHG Protocol for calculating emissions which are tailored for each different category.
The clean, simple and punchy layouts were designed to make the large amount of detailed GHG data content and calculations easy to follow and digest for the user.
The Book Chain Project is run by Carnstone Partners Ltd, a management consultancy specialising in ESG and sustainability, working as part of SLR Consulting.
