Sustainable business practice

Over the last few years, the scientific evidence about the changes we are seeing to the climate has become overwhelming. At Pearson, we're proud that many of the books we publish and the articles we print help to raise awareness of this evidence, but we’ve also been making sure we do our bit to have as minimal an environmental impact as possible.

We know that our stakeholders – young people, educators, business people and everyday citizens – are also passionate about caring for the planet, as are many of the people that work here.

Our commitment is reflected in our translation of aims into company policy: we have placed a carbon cap on the types of vehicles we use in our UK car fleets; we ask our suppliers to use sustainable sources of paper whenever possible and to abide by our Code of Business Conduct; and we’ve worked with the UK book publishing industry to introduce common principles on labour standards and human rights.
