At Cambridge University Press we recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment and to future generations, to manage and continually improve our environmental performance at every stage of our operations.
We recognise that our activities, products or services may have an effect on the environment. It is our aim to reduce that effect to a minimum, by implementing an effective system for managing our environmental impact. The details of that system, and the way it is integrated into our operations are set out on our website, www.cambridge.org.
By regularly assessing the significance of the effect we have on the environment, we will set objectives and targets relating to our operations. In particular we will continually strive to:
- Prevent or reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants
- Minimise consumption of natural resources and energy
- Reduce, reuse or recycle wastes

- Promote our environmental policy among our employees, our suppliers, our customers, our local community, our University and others in our industry.
This policy applies to all Cambridge University Press’s activities, products and services and is reviewed on a regular basis.
