Magazines Canada's Carbon Footprint Compendium provides how-to steps and guidance for magazine publishers looking to understand how they can reduce their businesses’ environmental impact.
The document sets out to answer the question “What can I do?” with achievable tips, tools and recommendations for magazine publishers and printers. Also included is a list of helpful questions that publishers can ask of their printers and other vendors to get their reduction strategies started.
The magazine industry is in a strong position to embrace sustainability given print products are fully recyclable and can be printed on environmentally friendly papers. The Compendium is a starting point to get the ball rolling towards a more sustainable magazine publishing industry.
The Carbon Footprint Compendium is supported by Magazines Canada, the Magazine Association of BC (MABC), the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association (AMPA), the Manitoba Magazine Publishers’ Association (MMPA), Magazines Ontario, the Atlantic Magazines Association (AMA), the Ontario Media Development Corporation and was developed in collaboration with Canopy, an environmental not-for-profit working with publishers to protect forest, species and climate.
