The LIFE+ project GREENING BOOKS, lead by LEITAT Technological Center aims at improving the environmental performance of the publishing sector, and reducing the environmental impact of books and magazines during all their life cycle.

EL TINTER, SIMPPLE and LEITAT have created different tools to help the publishing industry raise their competitiveness:  the software BookDAPer, the label bDAP and the Good practices Guidelines for Ecodesign on the publishing sector.

 

A GREENING BOOKS workshop will be held in the Delegation of the Catalan Government to the European Union, 227 Rue de Loi/Wetstraat in Brussels, the coming Monday June 3rd  from 10.00 am to 13.00 pm.

 

The event is addressed to all agents implied in a publication’s supply chain: suppliers (paper, inks, plates...), designers, printers, publishers, writers, booksellers, readers and other decision makers. 

GREENING BOOKS tools will be presented in order to demonstrate how useful they can be to assess, improve and communicate the environmental performance of a book or another publication.
