Book publishers think environment

To promote environmental sustainability in the book publishing industry, the Association of American Publishers published The Handbook on Book Paper and the Environment in February. The handbook covers governmental, commercial, and environmental matters that relate to the production of paper for books. It reflects more than two years of discussion with organisations that represent environmental advocacy groups, forest certification and standards bodies, environmental industry consortiums, economists, paper mills, and publishers, including Cambridge University Press, HarperCollins, Wiley, Macmillan, and McGraw-Hill. An executive summary is available from Tina Jordan (tjordan@publishers.org). (www.publishers.org/main/presscenter/PaperHandbookRelease.htm)
