At Cambridge University Press we recognise that we have a responsibility to protect the environment, and are committed to the enhancement of our environmental performance throughout every stage of our operations.
We recognise that our publishing activities, products or services for the Academic and Educational market may have an impact on the environment. It is our aim to reduce that impact to a minimum, by implementing an effective system for managing our environmental aspects.
Our Policy on Environmental Management
By regularly assessing the significance of our interdependence with the environment, we will adopt best practice guidance and where feasible set objectives relating to our operations. In particular we will continually strive to:
• Reduce CO2 and equivalent emissions by minimising energy consumption and reducing business travel
• Reduce and recycle waste
• Meet or surpass our compliance obligations
• Seek assurance from our suppliers that printed material is legally sourced
• Promote and make available our environmental policy among our employees, our suppliers, our customers, our local community, our University and other interested parties.
The purpose of our environmental policy is to document our commitment to continuous environmental improvement. An Environmental Management System has been integrated into our business strategy and is key to determining our environmental priorities.
