We start the episode with a discussion of COP26 and the drive for print to become carbon neutral, and discuss how the print industry is already working to improve sustainability, The imperative is now being driven by increased demand from the market for sustainable providers across the supply chain. The episode highlights print companies already moving to improve their sustainability, and discusses the rising importance of eco credentials in tenders.

Wayne and Lindy then focus on the various industry groups introducing programmes to enable print businesses to enter the pathway to carbon neutrality. However it does note that while being green may help improve your bottom line, it doesn't shield you from external forces and the realities of commercial life, as some have sadly discovered.

From sustainability the discussion moves on to the impacts of the shipping crisis and how the increases in delays and costs are providing opportunities for onshoring work. We discuss the latest move in New Zealand to capitalise on this, along with the benefits of keeping work, and its associated funds, onshore.

The episode then discusses some mergers and acquisitions that have taken place in November within the industry, and other movers and shakers moving on to new opportunities, lauds the winners of the national print awards and casts an eye to next year, and the big issue in particular.
