Becoming carbon neutral

Nonprofit publisher Annual Reviews is pleased to announce that it has become a carbon neutral organization.

We commissioned SCS Global Services to complete a greenhouse gas inventory for 2019. The result was 684 metric tons of CO2 equivalents, with major contributions from travel associated with Editorial Committee meetings, printing/distribution of some of our journals and office-related emissions.

These emissions have been offset through a Gold Standard certified investment in efficient and clean cookstoves for low-income households in Mozambique.

President and Editor-In-Chief, Richard Gallagher, said: “We at Annual Reviews are committed to minimizing environmental impact by reducing our carbon budget wherever possible and purchasing offsets against the emissions that we generate. We are appreciative of the opportunity to invest in a project that contributes to improved health in low income communities.”
