2011 Sustainability Report
Putting our stamp on a greener tomorrow


Publications are being read in electronic formats more every day. Tablets like the iPad and Kindle Fire, smartphones like iPhones, Android and Windows phones, and ebook readers like the Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook are used daily by millions of people. That’s a good thing, especially in terms of sustainability. The more publications that are read this way, the less paper, ink and waste product from printing are produced.
