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 have worked to achieve an ISO 14001 accreditation, which we first obtained in 2011. Additionally, Excel was awarded the Sustainable Roots grant in 2013 for our commitment to sustainable business. 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 have since been accredited for ISO14001 in 2012 and 2013 and are currently preparing for our 2014 assessment
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 extra impact on the environment, as your shredding is collected when we deliver your stationery.

Excels’ Commitment to the Environment
We live in a consumable society and we are in a consumables business so we try and set a good example by walking the walk instead of just talking the talk. The state of the environment impacts us all, and it will have a greater impact upon our children and generations to come.
We use and recommend recycled or environmentally accredited paper. To maintain quality in your documents FSC and PEFC papers are made from virgin pulp but from managed forestry schemes. FSC is the Forest Stewardship Council which is founded on inclusive and shared responsibility for setting high social, environmental and economic standards for forest management.
Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) accesses national forestry schemes and verifies that they meet minimum environmental and sustainable criteria.
Other accreditations usually associated with 100% recycled papers are Nordic Swan and Greenpeace. We not only use the environmentally accredited papers but all internal documents are printed on the reverse of previous documents. All paper waste is shredded and recycled.
Excel believes that an ethical and sustainable approach to the paper industry is vital.
During the last 10 years we have seen an increase in the number of compatible toner cartridges being supplied to our customers. These range from recycled cartridges which may not always return value for money as the most important working part of the toner is the drum. With cheap recycled toner cartridges the drum is rarely changed and therefore the cartridge packs up before the true life has been reached.
We prefer to supply quality compatible toner cartridges from manufacturers like Office Basics, Armor and Tinto. We have been working with Tinto Laser Services for 10 years now. We use their toners in our printers and regularly recommend their products.
Excel offer a toner collection and recycling service to our customers.
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.
