Advocate green publishing low-carbon green publishing in Europe and the United States has begun to take shape

Upload Time:2023/03/15 来源:

  Today, the Earth is losing 7.3 million hectares of forest every year, which means that an area the size of a football field disappears from the earth every two seconds。It is estimated that 40% of the trees cut down on Earth are processed into pulp, which eventually becomes books, magazines and paper。

  With the increasing awareness of environmental protection and the popularity of the concept of low-carbon life, as early as 10 years ago, foreign countries began to advocate green publishing。In 2000, Greenpeace launched its first book project in Canada, calling on writers and publishers to print books on forest-friendly paper。Forest-friendly paper refers to recycled paper, paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and straw paper that meets pollution emission standards。

  Now, green publishing in Europe and the United States has formed a certain scale。The best known is the Green Press Initiative, a non-profit organization whose main mission is to promote environmental protection in the publishing industry。The association's overall goal is to increase the average use of recycled paper from 5% to 30% by 2011, thereby reducing the environmental impact of the book industry。The American Green Publishing Initiative is also calling on publishers, printers and other book industry organizations to join the initiative to use recyclable paper and protect ancient and endangered forests。More than 100 publishers in Canada have committed to using only recycled or FSC-certified paper。In Britain, 60% of publishers have made the same commitment。In Spain, 700,000 books are printed on recycled or FSC-certified paper。It is said that the Harry Potter books have witnessed a history of green publishing。In 2003, when the fifth Harry Potter book was published in Canada, it was first printed on forest-friendly paper。By the time of the sixth edition in 2005, nine countries were using forest-friendly paper。By the time of the last edition in 2007, 23 countries around the world had used forest-friendly paper。

  Foreign low-carbon green publishing began to take shape, first of all there is a green publishing concept as support。Tyson Miller, a spokesman for the American Green Publishing Initiative, said green publishing will only take off if publishers generally embrace the idea, especially if their ceos agree。As of June, more than 100 publishing companies have signed up to the Green Publishing Initiative, although the American Association of Green Publishing Initiatives has not yet received the support of most major publishers。Chelsea Green was the first publishing house to participate in the Green Publishing Initiative and began printing the "It's Worth It" logo on all of its books。This green publishing label is designed to let every reader know that the cost of producing books from recycled paper is high, and therefore the price of books is high, but that the cost of protecting the environment is worth it。西蒙&Shuster is one of the major publishers participating in the Green Publishing Initiative。The company has announced that it will "protect the environmental determination and specific paper use policies to ensure the future use of recycled paper printed books."。Powell Publishing is proud to be part of the initiative。Along with other publishers participating in the initiative, it will protect endangered forests and use FSC-certified paper。

  Foreign low-carbon green publishing has begun to take shape, and green publishing and printing technology should be guaranteed。In the United States, Thompson-Shore was the first printer to join the Green Publishing Initiative, pledging to protect the environment and be responsible for the rational use of natural resources。The head of the company said that as a printer, the use of paper is the core of the job。Together with other companies participating in the agreement, they will protect ancient forests and their irreplaceable natural resources。Thompson-scho plans to maximize the use of recyclable paper in 3-5 years and phase out paper produced from wood from endangered forests。Their goal is to get publishers to embrace recyclable paper。As a printing country, the German Industry Association in early 2010, has been energy measurement guidelines as the standard of the German publishing machinery and equipment manufacturing Federation。Before applying for a subsidy for the purchase of a new machine, the printer must ensure that the investment can improve the energy balance of the enterprise。

  The British Printing Industry Federation (BPIF) has launched a calculator specifically for the printing and packaging industry to calculate carbon dioxide emissions。This calculator is able to estimate the carbon emissions of plants and products based on PAS2050 and GHG(Greenhouse gas) standards。At the recently closed British International Printing Exhibition, it seems that "green printing" has become more high-profile。Whether it is Heidelberg, Manroland and other traditional printing companies, or OKI, Fuji Xerox and other digital printing companies, have played the environmental protection card, began to promote green printing。As "green printing" is gradually put on the agenda, the printing industry has begun to look for new business opportunities from this concept。It is not difficult to see that printing equipment suppliers have placed the concept of green printing in an increasingly important position in their strategic development。It seems that many foreign printers have tasted the sweetness from green printing, which not only allows printing companies to get rid of the Red Sea of micro-profit competition, but also allows printing companies to enter the blue ocean with a broad vision。

  Low-carbon green publishing has not only begun to take shape in Europe and the United States, but also has gradually been recognized in India。On the streets of Mumbai, India, there is a street publishing house known for its green publishing。The paper they use to publish their books is all recycled paper, including expired newspapers and magazines, no longer used paper boxes, postcards, and even many supermarket shopping receipts。According to the owner of the publishing house, all the collected waste paper is sent to a recycling plant, where it is reprocessed and treated to remove thumbtacks, impurities and original colors。Then the refined pulp is used again。

  Publishers also encourage people to bring their own scrap paper to print books, so that the price can be lower。Because this kind of green publishing has a great advantage in price, this publishing house attracts many people who have poor economic conditions but want to publish books, especially those who are very obsessed with literature and are keen to become writers。This publishing house in Mumbai is undoubtedly in line with and comply with the trend of low-carbon green times, not only to achieve low carbon environmental protection, but also to help people realize the desire to publish books, it can be said to kill two birds with one stone。
