In 2019, 42 percent of the office supplies we purchased from Staples were green products. This represents an almost 10 percent increase from our 2013 baseline. Seventy percent of the paper products we purchased from Staples were classified as having advanced eco-features.
Printer paper is our second most used office supply, so our sustainable operations guidelines specifically address paper-use reduction. A 2018 change in our printing software supports no-waste printing, along with employee education and engagement, has enabled us to save an average of 457,626 sheets of paper per year.
