Double barrel win for two Staples copy papers
Two of our copy papers have been recognised as ABA100 Winners in The Australian Business Awards 2015 for both Best New Product and Best Eco Product: Staples 100% Recycled A4 Copy Paper and Staples Carbon Neutral 20% Recycled Copy Paper.
The awards recognise Staples Australia’s achievements in developing recycled content products to meet the growing demands of consumers. Learn more about the products and why they were awarded these accolades:
This year we added to our range an Australian-manufactured, all-purpose paper made from high quality, 100% post-consumer recycled paper waste. Delivering a clean, white appearance which is suitable for all copying and printing needs, Staples™ 100% Recycled is Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) and PEFC™ certified. It was developed to meet the needs of our customers, who are demanding Australian-made products that have a focus on sustainability.
This unique product is available only from Staples and is further evidence of our commitment to sustainability and social responsibility.
This copy paper is certified carbon neutral under the National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) Carbon Neutral Program. In 2015, we’ve taken further steps to improve a great product, adding 20% post-consumer recycled content. The new version of the paper also represents great value for customers, being no more expensive than the product it replaces. This allows companies to make a positive impact on the environment without any impact to operational expenses.
This product is also Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) and PEFC™ certified. The non-recycled component is sourced from sustainably managed plantations and forestry operations.
Well done to our supplier partner, Australian Paper
Craig Dunn, National Manager Sustainability, Communication & Marketing at Australian Paper said, “We are proud to manufacture these award-winning recycled papers for our strategic partner Staples, right here in Australia. Australian Paper’s new state-of-the-art recycling plant is diverting up to 80,000 tonnes of wastepaper from our local landfills each year. Staples’ strong ongoing support for locally-made recycled paper is greatly appreciated by the almost 6,000 Australians whose jobs are dependent on sustainable, local paper manufacturing.”
