Other companies talk about corporate responsibility. At Penguin, we talk about Creative Responsibility – because creativity is at the heart of everything we do.
Social impact has always been part of our DNA. In 1935 our founder, Allen Lane, established Penguin to make good quality books affordable and accessible to everyone. In doing so, he created a paperback revolution that democratised literature and transformed publishing.
We remain true to Allen Lane’s original vision today through our mission: we make books for everyone, because a book can change anyone.
