    World Wildlife day 2023 promotion with illustrations of forest animals, bugs and sealife

    World Wildlife Day

    World Wildlife Day is held annually on 3 March to celebrate all the world’s wild animals and plants and the contribution that they make to our lives and the health of the planet.

    The day is the most important global annual event dedicated to wildlife. This year’s theme ‘Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation’ will provide the opportunity to highlight the people who are making a difference as well as to celebrate the bridge that Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) has been for these partnerships to form, making a significant contribution to sustainability, wildlife and biodiversity conservation.

    International Day of Forests

    International Day of Forests is held annually on 21 March to celebrate how forests give us so much to our health. They purify the water, clean the air, capture carbon to fight climate change, provide food and life-saving medicines, and improve our well-being.

    Forest sustainable management and their use of resources are key to combating climate change, and to contributing to the prosperity and well-being of current and future generations.

    Yet despite all these priceless ecological, economic, social and health benefits, forests are endangered by fires, pests, droughts, and unprecedented deforestation.

    Our Sustainability Commitment

    We’re committed to sustainable publishing and minimizing the impact we have on the environment. We support industry-wide collaboration on sustainable publishing, and are founder signatories of both the SDG Publishers Compact and Publishing Declares.

    At Taylor & Francis we’re taking accelerated steps to reduce our carbon and waste footprint, and championing the shift to a lower carbon future across the communities we serve. These include:

    • Become carbon neutral as a business and across our products by 2025

    • Over five years, halve the waste generated through our products by 2025

    • Become zero waste and net zero carbon by 2030 or earlier

      Launch of Key Policy Highlights

      Key Policy Highlights (KPH) communicate the significance of scientific research evidence in jargon-free and clear language, to a non-scientific audience. This audience includes policy-makers and professionals in nearby disciplines.

      This pilot scheme offers authors (in participating journals) the option to publish a secondary abstract called ‘Key Policy Highlights’, as part of the scientific research paper.

      By highlighting the policy relevance of research via Key Policy Highlights, you will:

      • Increase the journal’s readership particularly from a policy audience

      • Facilitate the uptake of original research into decision-making
