Incisive Media has become one of the first B2B media owners to mail its magazines using recycled paper wrappers, replacing single-use plastics.
From September 2019 Incisive Media's Professional Pensions, International Investment, Multi Asset Review and CRN brands will use a recycled paper wrapper. Investment Week will follow in due course.
The media owner's portfolio of magazines are printed by Merthyr Tydfil's Stephens & George, one of the first UK printing companies to offer a paper-enclosing service.
The new paper-enclosing approach is in line with Incisive Media's long-term sustainability and zero-carbon objective both in its supply chain and as an employer. It complements the work that has been done to ensure the business's conferences and awards are as sustainable as possible.
"A responsible approach to sustainability and the environment is essential to ensure the future growth of our business and the role that we play in the wider communities we serve," said Incisive Media's chief executive Jonathon Whiteley. "Care for the environment goes hand in hand with being a responsible employer, partner and customer. We encourage and empower everyone who works at Incisive Media to be aware of how the work we do affects the wider society."
