Reducing The Carbon Footprint Within The Publishing Industry

The previous post gave an indication that cars could undergo a dramatic change in offsetting their impact on global warming. The publishing industry itself could also follow a similar direction. With bookfaironline.net it's central premise is to digitalise the book fair process so that there is no need to travel to and from location. In doing so, they are inviting publishers to join them in reducing the carbon footprint within the publishing industry. However, the site is currently just an empty box waiting for content. Although the site offers a £1,000 voucher for publisher's wishing to participate, very few appear to have done so at this stage.
