Every organization contributes to carbon dioxide emissions through its day to day operations. The scientific consensus is that increasingly levels of CO2 emissions are causing climate change, and that this is potentially the most serious threat facing the world today.
Blackwell Publishing has decided to take action and become a CarbonNeutral organization. Blackwell is the first major publisher to make the investment to become CarbonNeutral and we hope that we will lead the way for others in the industry.
To begin this project, Blackwell worked with The CarbonNeutral Company to identify our ‘carbon footprint,’ or the approximate volume of CO2 generated by the organization. It is calculated by assessing energy usage, business travel, and all components of the company’s operations that consume power or generate waste and by-products.
