Some good news from the book industry. Yesterday, Hachette Book Group, one of the top 5 publishers and publisher of the popular Twilight series, announced an industry leading environmental policy which includes the following targets:

  • 30% Recycled fiber (majority post consumer) by 2012
  • 20% FSC certified papers by 2012
  • 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions (including paper emission and forest carbon loss) by 2020
Read the full policy or an article in Publishers Weekly.
