Three prestigious organisations sign book series agreements with Greenleaf Publishing

Three major organisations that are producing significant research in the fields of business and environmental sustainability – The Textile Institute; Portland State University; World Association for Sustainable Development – have signed agreements with Greenleaf Publishing to produce future book series.

Each of the book series will significantly contribute to the ground-breaking research on core sustainability issues.

The Textile Institute has been producing the highest quality research in textile production since 1910 and this new partnership represents a clear focus on the importance of sustainability to this field:

“The Textile Institute is delighted to be working with Greenleaf Publishing on a selection of books relevant to the sustainable aspects of the textile, clothing and footwear industries. With over 100 years’ experience in publishing the very best in research, The Textile Institute look forward to this new partnership which will enhance readers knowledge globally.”

Rebecca UnsworthDirector of Professional Affairs, The Textile Institute

Sustainable Solutions, the book series from Portland State University, will focus on the discourse between universities and communities in creating a more sustainable society. Co-Editor B.D. Wortham-Galvin states:

“Our book series is an important addition to the discourse of sustainability in that it asks: How can universities meaningfully incorporate sustainability at all levels of performance and engagement? How do we leverage the relationship between knowledge production and how people live?”

The World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD) aims to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience to improve the mutual understanding of the roles of science and technology in achieving sustainable development across the world. Its successful book series World Sustainable Development Outlook, will now be published in collaboration with Greenleaf Publishing. Allam Ahmed, the Founding President of the World Association for Sustainable Development comments:

 “We are very impressed with the work that Greenleaf Publishing is doing to publish first-class sustainability titles and we are delighted to be able to publish our main annual book series with them – they are really exceptional.”

The books will be sold separately in print and ebook formats, and will also be distributed by Ingenta Connect to 1.4 million individual users around the world and by leading universities and institutions for the benefit of all of their stakeholders.
