HarperCollins UK's 'first carbon neutral publisher'

HarperCollins UK's 'first carbon neutral publisher'
UK-based publisher Harper Collins has claimed that it is now the first in the country to be carbon neutral.

Over the past 12 months it has successfully reduced it has been investing in carbon offsetting and has managed to reduce its carbon footprint by eight per cent

The bookseller.com reports that in July this year the publisher entered into a contract which will see it source all of its electricity from renewable sources, which it claims will have a "significant impact" on its carbon footprint in 2008.

Victoria Barnsley, the firm's chief executive, told the website: "While we're still just at the beginning of our environmental journey, I'm very pleased with the progress we've made,"

"We're all tremendously proud to make our operations carbon neutral but are well aware that the hard work doesn't stop here. We are committed to further reducing our own impact and will continue to seek out popular and commercially successful books that address these issues."

This year, HarperCollins has also made other eco-friendly moves including the replacement of all plastic cups with glasses and producing all of Fourth Estate's titles on completely recycled paper.

The publisher added that it is going to continue to work to lower its emissions.
