You want to take your business to the next level? You are looking for sustainability, but are not sure how to prioritize all the related issues? Finding new growth is not easy in today’s world. Join the Future Book Forum 2022, an invitation-only event, to collaborate with an exclusive, international community of publishers, book printers, technology providers and thought leaders. Discover how to find new, sustainable and profitable growth.
Finding new sustainable and profitable growth
Sustainability can sometimes seem like it is contradictory to growth. Book publishing like many other industries, has challenges in reducing its negative impacts – deforestation, energy, transport, waste and more. But it is also a force for good – educating, promoting and preserving culture, stimulating diversity by reaching people, enabling them to achieve more. We need to address both – challenge and opportunity – to prepare initiatives that enables strategic decision making.
Let´s explore how each potential initiative to grow could be imagined in a way that is more sustainable and more profitable. Let´s think differently. How can sustainability open new opportunities for growth? How can it be a catalyst for innovation? Some of the challenges can be solved better together, creating opportunities, working as an industry. Be a part of this collaborative approach. We look forward to seeing you.
