Mapping Progress was founded in 1994 by Sue Riddlestone and Pooran Desai, two environmental activists and campaigners based in Sutton, South London who were keen to found practical green and sustainable initiatives. From small beginnings it has grown into an organisation which has founded several green enterprises, influences the sustainability of many thousands of new homes and works with global businesses to make their operations and strategy more sustainable.

This publication is their 2015-2016 annual review, titled "Mapping Progress"
The finished size is 295x170mm, and it is a broadsheet format folding out to a flat size of 850x590mm. It folds down to reveal the below...
 ...and then it concertina's out as you can see in the image below:
As one might expect from and environmental organisation, there are sustainable facets to the production of this report. To start with, it is printed on our Redeem 100% Recycled 100gsm. The paper is a neutral white shade which really works with the images whilst also giving a 'nod' to the look and feel of a map, reproduced one side. It is printed offset litho and the whole job is just printed on one sheet of paper, with no binding, making this about as environmentally friendly (from a production point of view) as you can get.

Below are the images showing the flat size on both sides:

Design is by London based design company William Joseph and the creative director on the project is St├ęphane Harrison. Print is by Pureprint.

...and thank you to Julia Hawkins at Bioregional for sending me copies of the report and the lovely note!
