Players from across the publishing industry are being invited to pledge their commitment to the future by signing a new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Publishers Compact, launched at the start of Frankfurter Buchmesse (October 14-18, 2020). The compact features 10 action points that publishers, publishing associations and others can commit to undertaking to accelerate progress to achieve the SDGs by 2030. Signatories aspire to develop sustainable practices and act as champions of the SDGs during the Decade of Action (2020-2030), publishing books and journals that will help inform, develop and inspire action in that direction.
Publishers and publishing associations interested in joining the initiative are invited to sign up online via https://bit.ly/3jJ7sNL. The Official hashtag given is: #SDGPublishersCompact.
The Official Launch video through online can be found at http://www.bit.ly/SDGcompactLaunch.
Frankfurter Buchmesse is the annual meeting place for the publishing industry. It does not only bring international publishers and communities together to facilitate business deals and promote literature but the book fair is also the platform where current societal issues are being discussed in the spotlight of the global media. The fair is therefore ideally placed for the launch of the timely and important initiative.
The SDG Publishers Compact follows a successful collaboration between the United Nations and the International Publishers Association, alongside other book sector stakeholders that has resulted in the successful launch of the SDG Book Club and subsequent chapters in other languages.
