• Office Depot scores top marks with WWF

        • Office Depot has again achieved the highest possible rating in the latest WWF Timber Scorecard report, earning the company recognition for its commitment to responsibly sourcing timber products.

          The WWF Timber Scorecard 2019 is a three-part procedure which determines the dedication of businesses in acting in a more environmentally friendly manner with regards to timber products. Designed to assess the sourcing policies and performance of business’s timber products, the WWF assigns companies with a score in trees, with three trees being the highest achievement for those who are performing well against procurement policies.

          Jackie Buckwell, Corporate Compliance Manager UK and Ireland at Office Depot said, “we strive to carry out operations in the most ethical and sustainable way to minimise our impact on the environment. It is great to have our commitment recognised along with other companies doing their part in working towards a more sustainable future.”

          Office Depot has maintained its high score, after first achieving ‘three trees’ back in 2017. A total of 122 businesses were involved in the report and only 43 achieved the highest rating. As one of the top-performing companies, Office Depot was praised for its ODE Wood Fibre Procurement Policy, as well as its assessment of the wood fibre it sources for its own-brand products and OEM copier paper

          As a result, Office Depot has greater transparency of its supply chain, allowing it to buy from verified legal and known sources. Consequently, it eliminates products that do not comply in order to help the company meet the due diligence obligations in respect of the EU Timber Regulations.

          By recording and publishing individual business ratings for timber sourcing, the WWF is hoping to encourage further transparency, make consumers more aware and support the world’s efforts towards more sustainably sourced timber products.
