Responsible, Sustainable & Caring

Supply Chain Management

We are committed to ensuring that our suppliers maintain both ethical and sustainable business practices. We actively encourage our suppliers to implement environmental management systems and will not knowingly source from companies who fail to meet our stringent ethical and environmental criteria. The suppliers we work in partnership with are required to demonstrate that they are using sustainable sources and recycled materials wherever possible. The good news is that as more environmentally friendly products are becoming available, prices are now more competitive than ever compared with less sustainable options. Being environmentally friendly doesn't need to cost the earth.

Reducing our Carbon Footprint

This is a key priority and is achieved through a number of pro-active measures including regularly monitoring the CO emissions and fuel consumption of our 400 vehicle Truline fleet. Over 75% of our vehicles are fitted with the cleanest running engine technology.

Our Globe & Tick Range

Globe & Tick LogoOur Globe & Tick range offers a quick and easy way to make an environmental product choice. Our Globe & Tick accreditation scheme makes it easy to select genuinely 'green' alternatives that have been stringently assessed. Since its launch 15 years ago, the range has been expanded and now features over 1600 products which equates to 18% of our total product lines. From paper to cleaning supplies, the range includes products for all areas pf the workplace.
