Is your business built on sustainable foundations, and is future growth underpinned by a commitment to environmental change? The PPA’s seventh annual Sustainability Summit provided a platform to help magazine media companies answer these kinds of questions at a challenging time for our resource-constrained world. Alongside this we recognised and rewarded excellence in sustainability initiatives with The PPA Sustainability Awards.
