    Greenpublishing is an innovative way to manage publications according to sustainable requirements. Environmental and social criteria are introduced in the publishing process in order to reduce impacts produced during all the phases.

    Ecoedicion recommends the adoption of the best available techniques and the best environmental practices, taking into account the complete life¿cycle of a product: from design to production, distribution, use and end of life. Furthermore, Ecoedicion draws up a list of recommendations about raw materials, printing processes, binding, formats and so on.
