Background

 The GREENING BOOKS projects replies to:

  • the needs of recovering the environment from the impacts derivate of the publishing industry;

  • the need of integrate existing regulatory tools such as Ecolabel, EMAS, Eco-design, LCA, CO2 calculator;

  • the necessity of increasing professional's knowledge on tools and methods to improve the environmental performance of a book/magazine;

  • the lack of users' awareness of the environmental impact of the publications, and also lack of trusted and contrasted information.

All this goes through to the implementation of the Ecoedition concept, an innovative way to manage publications according to sustainable principles that consists of the incorporation of environmental and social criteria into the publishing process for minimizing negative impacts derived from this activity through all the phases of the process.

GREENING BOOKS will analyze environmental impacts derived from publications, the project will establish basic environmental criteria and finally will develop a software tool for optimizing the application of these criteria in the publishing and graphic arts sectors.
