Climate Responsibility

The impact of humans on the earth’s climate and ecosystem is undoubtedly the greatest challenge facing humanity. For Bonnier Books, it is obvious that we should take our share of responsibility and we are therefore working actively to reduce and remove our climate footprint through the following two main initiatives:

In the year 2019, we emitted 123,064 tonnes of greenhouse gases, measured in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e). This calculation covers all of our operations at that time and includes Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, which means that we measure a book’s entire life cycle – from raw material to new raw material. Our measurements are closely aligned with the most rigorous standard for measuring and achieving climate neutrality, PAS 2060, developed by the British Standards Institute. The underlying calculations follow internationally accepted standards such as the GHG Protocol. 

Our goals have been set together with our climate partner, South Pole, with which we have been working since 2018 to ensure that we measure correctly, set correct goals and in all respects follow the existing regulations. More information about this can be found here.

It is important to emphasize that our main goal is to reduce our emissions both in the short and long term. Offsetting is what we do only to compensate for the emissions we cannot yet avoid.

Going Forward

It is reasonable to assume that in the next few years we will experience changes that we have not previously been able to imagine. Consequently, our strategy is based on a five-year vision and based on the information and science available to us today.

Bonnier Books’ ambition is to continue to spread stories and knowledge that increase understanding of our world.
