BIC’s Designed for Recycling Project
Join us in the London Book Fair Sustainability Lounge at 10.45 am for an overview and update on our Designed for Recycling Project. Part of BIC’s Green Supply Chain Committee’s Green Supply Chain Work Plan, this project’s ultimate aim is to establish what can be done differently with regard to the creation of books and to recommend how best to progress to a situation where every book is automatically and always designed with recycling in mind.
