About the Event
01:30 P.M. (CEST) Sustainability and a Viable Future for Publishing. Navigating the Roadmap and Timing for a better future. This year’s Earth Day saw a raft of announcements from publishers committing to carbon neutral targets. In a year that sees the UK hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), what more can the publishing industry do to ensure it has a sustainable future, and is it a level playing field globally?. What does the roadmap look like, What can publishers do practically?, and how can bilateral relationships and partnerships across the broader book industry ecosystem, and across countries, play a role in ensuring there is a timely plan ahead.
