We are delighted to announce that Alex Hedley, Publisher at Harper Collins has been awarded a scholarship from PANZ to participate in the recently advertised Sustainability Leadership Programme run by Catapult. Alex will be supported by a small group of publishers focused on environmental sustainability and mentored by a member of PANZ Council.
Alex said, ‘I’m so pleased to be awarded this sustainability leadership programme scholarship. It will be a huge privilege to help map the strengths and weaknesses of our industry at this critical time. I believe we can make quick progress, and I feel confident we can put in place guidelines to ensure the environmental sustainability of the work we do, for the futures of our authors, our booksellers and our readers. I’m so pleased PANZ has taken this initiative, and I can’t wait to get stuck in!’
We wish Alex all the very best with the course and look forward to working with him on this vital issue.
