Our Policy

  • Meet or exceed all applicable government legislation, local and company environmental, health and safety standards.
  • Endeavour to only source and market products that are manufactured by companies with specified environmental policies.
  • Closely monitor all aspects of our operation for prevention of pollution. For example, with transport and distribution, we maximise space utilisation on vehicles to minimise the requirement for extra delivery vehicles.
  • Participate in recycling to the greatest practical extent to reduce impact on landfills and promote recovery of valuable resources. All our plastic and cardboard waste is baled and recycled using a local recycling company.
  • Have specific concerns for product sustainability, i.e., producing a range of products that are FSC® or PEFC™ certified and from well-managed forest sources.
  • Strive to continuously improve our commitment to the above stated principles through exercise of our EMS (Environmental Management System) Action Plan by using improved technology and diligence.
  • Continue to increase our range of environmentally friendly envelope products. Now totalling more than 67% of our product range making it the largest range available in the UK for next day delivery.
