Springer Nature Group has published its annual Responsible Business report on its environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The report highlights how the publisher supports research, education and professional communities globally by opening doors to discovery and providing greater access to the latest knowledge, science and research. Throughout the report, Springer Nature outlines ways it is supporting delivery of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), how it manages its environmental impact and the actions being taken to support diversity and inclusion.
Springer Nature has taken decisive action to reduce its net carbon emissions by around 30 percent in 2019 (taking carbon offsets into account) by increasing its use of green electricity and reducing air travel, and has a goal of being carbon neutral by the end of 2020. Springer Nature is on track to meet its 2023 targets for greater diversity in leadership, with women now making up around 41 percent of its most senior leaders - up from 39 percent in 2018.
As a leader in publishing SDG-relevant research, with titles including Nature Climate Change (the most highly-cited climate change journal) and Nature Sustainability, Springer Nature publishes research of critical importance to the understanding of climate and sustainability issues and how to tackle them. The Responsible Business report shares the commitment to connect relevant research with the policymakers and practitioners who can build on these insights.
