Scholarly Kitchen has recently published an interesting article on the SDG Publishers Compact. It highlights the fact that all the publishers who have signed up to the compact are meant to publish progress reports on how they are doing. Yet we aren't seeing these reports, which is part of being a member of the compact.

The Australian Publishers Association (APA) has recently published The Greener Publishing Guide. The guide provides publishers with a lot of information around how they can make their businesses greener and more sustainable.

The guide is broken down into the following six sections, which are easy to understand and digest. When it mentions work being done by other trade organisations it links to those sites. The sections are:

  • Greener products

  • A green supply chain

  • Better business practices

  • Promote environmental content

  • Collaboration, standards and targets

  • Further reading

As well as all this useful advice, there is a feedback button for readers to submit ideas and thoughts to help improve the site.
