劍橋大學出版社在近期的QIP媒體大獎(Quality in Print Media Awards 註1)中榮獲「最佳環保報章雜誌書籍出版獎(Environmental Magazine, Newspaper and Book Publishing Award)」。

出版社過去所提倡的環保主張與實踐的環保成就的使人印象深刻,讓它從Acona/PREPS、Haymarket Media Group、企鵝出版社和Elsevier科學出版社等公司中脫穎而出。

評審們說:「劍橋大學出版社對於環境保育的態度不是空談,而是實際用行動表示。」
環保實踐工作對劍橋大學出版社來說並非一件新鮮事。在2007年,為了要達到ISO 14001的製造標準認證,我們大大提升了這些實踐工作的深度。劍橋是第一家得到ISO 14001認證的英國出版社。

評審們對於劍橋大學出版社在2007年降低了11%的溫室效應氣體排放量以及回收了92%的垃圾量感到相當印象深刻。而其他令人讚揚的環保措施,包含:採購無酒精的印刷設備、90%印刷油墨使用植物製油墨、員工汽車共乘、員工腳踏車通勤計劃(Pool bike schemes 註2),以及在森林管理委員會(FSC 註3)的頭銜增加了五倍。

今年,劍橋大學出版社更計畫藉由出版「劍橋環保印刷指南」將綠色環保知識散播出去,讓綠色議題化概念為行動。

Press Receives Award in Recognition of Its Green Initiatives

TUESDAY 15 July 2008 | David Royal, Cambridge Printing

The Press picked up first prize in the "Environmental Magazine, Newspaper and Book Publishing Award" category at the recent Quality in Print Media Awards.

Beating off from companies such as Acona/PREPS, Haymarket Media Group, Penguin Group UK and Reed Elsevier, the Press was honoured with the award due to its impressive record of implementing, or already having achieved, many green initiatives.

The judges said: “Cambridge University Press’s attitude is not just talking about improving its green credentials, but actually doing, or having done, something about it.” 

Environmental practices have been the norm at Cambridge University Press long before they became fashionable. These practices were further refined in 2007 in order to achieve the ISO 14001 standard for manufacturing. We were the first UK publisher to do this.

The judges were impressed by the Press’s 11% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in 2007, a year in which we also recycled 92% of waste. Other initiatives that drew praise included: the purchase of alcohol-free presses; the use of vegetable based inks for 90% of inks used; the car sharing and pool bike schemes; and the 500% increase in the number of FSC titles.

This year, the Press plans to spread its green knowledge further by producing the Cambridge Guide to Ethical Printing, covering green issues in publishing from concept to completion.
