Our Plans for 2007

Maintain our position in the key indices of social responsibility.

Expand the environmentally friendly book packaging options to distribution centres outside our key markets of the US and UK.

Continue our environmental and labour standards auditing programme with our printers in Asia, the Far East and parts of continental Europe.

Continue to advance our programme for independent certification of the paper we purchase for our books and newspapers.

Continue the process of becoming a climate neutral company with a view to completing that process globally by 2009.

Continue our commitment to build a truly international business by helping more of our people experience a new country on a short-term assignment, with our developing markets as a priority.

Show evidence of progress in retention of people with diverse backgrounds for both entry level and management positions.

Launch the Pearson Foundation Development Fund to support our businesses in their work with community-based programmes around the world.

Work with the UK government to extend our flagship community programme Booktime and build on the success of Read for the Record with Jumpstart in the US.
