Inaugural SustainPrint.com Leadership Awards Announced
The inaugural “SustainPrint.com Leadership Awards” will be presented on Monday, March 5, at the 2007 Book Business Conference and Expo in New York. The Leadership Awards recognize book and magazine publishing companies for their achievements in environmental sustainability and are presented by SustainPrint.com—a Web site developed by Book Business and Publishing Executive magazines to provide a central location for information and resources on environmental sustainability in printing and publishing.
“We believe it is extremely important to recognize publishing companies that have made significant efforts to improve their environmental impact,” says
Noelle Skodzinski, Book Business’ editor in chief, who also directs the editorial content of SustainPrint.com. “These awards recognize true leadership among those companies whose policies not only can educate others on the importance of such efforts, but can inspire others by demonstrating the feasibility of making significant environmental policy changes while meeting business demands.”
The first-ever awards are being presented during a reception to a “Long-time Leader” and “Newcomer of the Year” in book publishing. The book publishing recipients were nominated and chosen by the editorial staff of Book Business magazine and its advisory board of industry experts. The inaugural awards ceremony is being held at New York’s Marriott Marquis, Times Square, during the Book Business Conference and Expo, an annual event attracting thousands from the publishing industry.
