Taylor & Francis achieves CarbonNeutral® publication certification for its print books and journals -

Academic publisher Taylor & Francis, part of the Informa Group, has achieved CarbonNeutral® publication certification for all 2021 and 2022 print books and journals. This follows the company’s accelerated progress in reducing carbon emissions from its product supply chain and its purchase of high-quality, third-party-verified carbon credits for the remaining emissions that cannot yet be avoided.

Customers of Taylor & Francis’ peer-reviewed research and specialist learning content select whether to purchase it in a digital format or as a printed book or journal. The majority of overall sales are now digital.

Where customers choose to receive printed books and journals, Taylor & Francis is taking a range of actions to reduce unnecessary waste and the carbon emissions connected with printed materials, including: increasing the use of print-on-demand services to better match production with demand and reduce physical stock levels; donating unused book stock to BookAid and Amnesty International, avoiding waste and contributing to the wider sharing of knowledge; and implementing a program to remove plastic packaging from printed journals, which now covers nearly 75% of products.

The remaining carbon emissions from printed products and their supply chain are now calculated and compensated for through the purchase of high-quality carbon credits. As a result, Taylor & Francis has achieved CarbonNeutral® publication certification from Natural Capital Partners, the leading experts on carbon neutrality and climate finance, in line with The CarbonNeutral Protocol.

The purchase of credits supports high-quality, verified carbon reduction projects around the world that help protect and restore habitats, as well as improve the health and wellbeing of communities through cleaner cooking and heating solutions. These projects include the preservation of grasslands in Colorado, as well as projects that provide households in Sichuan with biodigesters to generate clean energy, solar water heaters in India, and supporting a biomass fuel switch project to protect the Caatinga biome in Brazil.
