Environmental Policy

As one of the leading office products resellers, we are committed to promoting sustainable development, to continuously improving our activities, and to conducting our business in a responsible way. Being sensitive to the environment is a key part of our corporate social responsibility.

To show our commitment to protecting the world around us, Excel Office Supplies has been approved for ISO 14001 : 2004 accreditation. We continue to find new ways of improving our relationship with the environment, and are always looking into innovative ways to reduce our impact on the natural world.

We are working for a better environment

  • As a reliable business partner, it is critical to us that we operate as responsible corporate citizens
  • We will meet, and where reasonably practicable, exceed the requirements of all applicable environmental legislation and regulations
  • We have integrated environmental management into our entire range of business activities
  • Our objective is to minimise the adverse environmental impacts of our activities
  • Our management takes a leading role in environmental matters for the company, but everyone at our company shares this common vision and takes responsibility for our environmental performance

We source office products responsibly

  • We access an extensive supplier base focusing on those suppliers that offer products, services and business methods with the strongest environmental credentials wherever possible
  • We support environmental certification based on independent third-party verification, and in 2011 we gained the ISO14001 certification for all of our business activities

We look to continuously improve our environmental performance

  • We work hard to promote products, services and working methods and to improve our environmental performance and energy efficiency
  • We are committed to a process of continuous improvement
  • We will work closely with our suppliers, customers and others within our channel to examine ways in which we can work together to improve our combined environmental performance

What can you, as a customer of ours, do to help us help the environment?

  • Choose ‘Environmental Delivery’ by entering ‘ENVIRO’ as a product code online. This is subsequently printed on the customer delivery note and routed on a non-urgent delivery schedule – saving on fuel and taking the environment into account.
  • Recycle your toner cartridges with Excel. We will pick them up free of charge when we deliver your stationery.
  • Use Excel’s Secure Shredding Service – the cheapest and most environmentally-friendly way to safely destruct your paper waste. The paper is shredded and goes back up the supply chain to be made into recycled paper. There is no impact on the environment, as your shredding is collected when we deliver your stationery.


This environmental policy is reviewed on an on-going basis and will be updated as necessary.
This policy is available to the public on request.

Please let us know if you would like any further details on Excel’s commitment to sustainability and the environment.
