Globul Supports The Publishing Of Books On Sustainable Development
Wednesday, 09 October 2013
As part of its corporate responsibility strategy GLOBUL launches a new annual initiative to support the publishing of books dedicated to sustainable development. The project aims at increasing the awareness and engagement of the Bulgarian society on global sustainability issues.
The first edition published with GLOBUL support is World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse. The company will donate a copy of the book to 60 regional and university libraries in the country to provide Bulgarian readers with access to one of the most valuable analysis of the global environmental crisis and the way out of it.
The book’s author, Lester R. Brown is president of the Washington-based Earth Policy Institute and helped pioneer the concept of environmentally sustainable development. Brown is the recipient of many prizes and awards, including the MacArthur Fellowship, the United Nations Environment Prize, the Blue Planet Prize and 25 honorary degrees.
GLOBUL supports publishing books on sustainability issues in memory of Mrs. Hrisa Deliyska (1977-2012) who was involved in launching and developing the company’s corporate responsibility strategy.
