BookSource reduces its carbon footprint and energy bills

18 June 2019

BookSource (owned by Publishing Scotland) is one of the UK's fastest-growing distributors of books and other printed material. At its 44,000 square feet warehouse and distribution centre in Cambuslang just outside Glasgow, the business holds 4 million books. These are distributed to shops, wholesalers, online retailers, supermarkets and private individuals all over the world. 

The team at BookSource was keen to look at how the company could reduce its environmental impact and cut costs by becoming more resource efficient. 

With help from Resource Efficient Scotland advisers and the Scottish Government's unsecured and interest-free SME loan, BookSource capitalised on the latest lighting technology to substantially reduce its annual energy bill and carbon footprint.
