As a part of Hachette UK's large family of businesses, we have a series of clear and ethical sustainability, suitability and business policies.
Hachette recognises the criticality of reducing the environmental impact of our supply chain and innovating to move to a circular production model. In 2021, we undertook a full greenhouse gas (Ghg) emission inventory for all Hachette UK operations, including those in our overseas territories, and covering our supply chain impact. Following this assessment, we signed up to the global Science Based Targets initiative, committing to reach net zero carbon emissions by as close to 2030 as possible, and by 2050 at the latest.

Our sustainable sourcing policy governs how we manage our impact within our extended supply chain. We communicate our expectations clearly to our supplier partners so that, together, we can produce our content in the best possible way for both the planet and the people involved.
