Hightree® Sustainable Publishers

A small publishing company with a big passion for sustainability.

The call for sustainable printing is ever-increasing. Unfortunately, PhD Theses are often overlooked. This is why we founded GreenThesis. At GreenThesis we design and print true quality theses, with care and respect for the environment, resulting in a beautiful Green Thesis. As a ‘thank you’ for your order, we plant lots of trees to work towards a better, greener, and more beautiful world together.

Our story

The Beginning

GreenThesis was founded by Elma Hogeboom, a natural scientist turned sustainable artist from the Netherlands. Through friends and other connections who were in the final stages of their PhD research, she found out that eco-friendly design and printing of PhD theses was a difficult–often infeasible–task. Printers hadn’t adjusted to sustainable printing methods yet, and eco-friendly graphic design was (and still is) a novel field. That’s why Elma did a lot of research to come up with a complete concept for a sustainable thesis. With her background in sustainable art and a solid scientific education, she started GreenThesis. Nowadays, we work with a small & passionate team of creative science lovers. We can be your partner for a true Green Thesis. Let’s work together and make this world a better, greener, and healthier place.
