The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG15 Hub: Life on Land

The insights of many research disciplines can illuminate and assist in solving the complex challenges associated with life on land. From a focus on regions, to new technologies or ecosystem modelling: research about all of these – and informed opinions too – can be found in our content across books, journals and magazines contained in this SDG hub.

The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG17 Hub: Partnerships for the Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG13 Hub: Climate Action

The impacts of human-caused climate change and global heating are all around us in every aspect of our planetary habitat and its natural systems. Adaptation, a key target of SDG13, requires an understanding of the diverse impacts of climate change and demands responsiveness from all parts of society. Here we highlight publications and content from across our imprints and formats which aim to address some of these challenges.

The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG6 Hub: Clean Water and Sanitation

In this hub Springer Nature highlights contributions in our books, journals and magazines towards SDG6 progress: in technological and systems approaches to water management, in studies of rural and urban contexts and of pathways of infectious diseases from ambient organisms, in the social understanding of ethnic disparities in access, and much more. We hope these resources provide insights and inspiration for those committed to these goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG16 Hub: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions

SDG16 promotes a world that ensures equal access to justice for all by developing transparent and inclusive institutions of global governance and protecting fundamental freedoms.

The Sustainable Development Goals Programme SDG2 Hub: Zero Hunger

Research that can help deliver insights and solutions towards the reduction of hunger, as targeted by SDG 2, is a major publishing focus of Springer Nature’s SDG Programme, whether in biotechnology or in geography, whether in agronomy or in economics, whether in nutrition or in international law. This hub presents a selection of books, journals and magazines content that highlights our commitment to addressing SDG 2.

Climate Change Knowledge Cooperative

In a cross industry collaboration this new platform is a new initiative to help broaden the discovery and understanding of climate change research — and accelerate its application towards a sustainable future. Research articles have been summarized into layperson articles and available free for everyone to explore the research stories or try searching for topics such as rising sea level, carbon offset, environmental campaigning or pollution.

PRISME (book packages bundling platform)

The French Book Chain uses a single logistics platform called Prisme where all the packages of books to be delivered to bookstores out of Paris, Belgium and in Luxembourg are gathered and sorted out. This allows bundling the flows of books to bookstores as well as returns, as therefore lowering shipping fees and contributing to a cleaner environment. It is currently used by 350 publishers/ distributors and 2500 booskellers.

Book Chain Project

The Book Chain Project, since 2016 has aimed to build better supply chains for books and help publishers make informed buying decisions. The Component Chemical Screening program, for instance, enables print suppliers to submit exact chemical breakdowns of each book component that can then be screened and flagged to publishers in order to substitute any components of concern.
