Corporate social responsibility

Duty and durability at the heart of customer excellence

Workplaces can make concrete contributions to address the most important environmental and societal challenges.

Excelling also means making sure that everything we do in order to please our customers is done in the most sustainable manner possible:

  • Delivering sustainable office products,
  • Making sure this happens in an ethical and compliant way in all countries where our partners operate,
  • Limiting packaging to the absolute minimum,
  • Creating an environmentally friendly process from order to delivery to product end of life,
  • Ensuring our staff excels wherever we are active,
  • Promoting schooling in developing countries.
