What is the BIC Environmental Accreditation Badges and Standards Map?
The BIC Environmental Accreditation Badges and Standards Map is the culmination of extensive work conducted by the Task & Finishing Working Group of the BIC Environmental Accreditation Badges project. This initiative aims to facilitate better purchasing decisions within the book industry and enable the inclusion of sustainability data in ONIX feeds from publishers to the wider world.
The map serves as a curated collection of sustainability accreditation badges and standards, commonly referred to as “badges,” applicable to the book industry supply chain. It provides a visual representation of the badges and their respective locations within the supply chain, ensuring easy access and use.
Why was it created?
The primary objective behind the creation of the BIC Environmental Accreditation Badges and Standards Map was to equip the book industry with the necessary tools to embrace sustainability and make informed decisions. Through meticulous research, the project identified 34 badges, 47 organisations providing valuable information, and 14 regulations relevant to environmental and social responsibility in the book industry supply chain.
By reviewing the impact areas, governance quality, and support offered by each badge, the map aims to empower organisations to improve their sustainability practices. Additionally, the map provides links to external websites, encouraging users to explore further resources and expand their knowledge in the field.
