Corporate Responsibility at Staples
Staples truly leads the industry in our strong commitment to corporate responsibility. We recognise the impacts our decisions have on our stakeholders and work with them to determine mutually beneficial solutions.
From our ethical and environmental sourcing policies to our commitment to diversity and charitable giving, we strive to be a supplier you can be proud to work with, and who can help you achieve your own corporate sustainability goals.
We reach out to and support the communities in which our customers and associates live and work. We generate economic benefit through our operations, and provide support for important community initiatives through Staples Foundation® and other company giving.
We seek to develop a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities and customers we serve all over the world by embracing diversity in all its forms: race, gender, thought, and experience. We promote a culture of inclusion within our workforce and source products and services from diversity suppliers.
We work to make it easy for you to make a difference to the environment by offering more sustainable products and services, and operating our business in an environmentally efficient way.
We strive to model integrity in all that we do and strictly adhere to our Code of Ethics and corporate governance practices. We seek to work with suppliers who share our values and expect them to meet our ethical sourcing requirements.
