Office Supplies & Paper

4 lessons learned from the Green Deal Circular Procurement

  1. Study what’s on offer carefully. There are lots of labels, certificates and sustainability claims on the market, but it’s important to be well aware what these are really worth. Commercial information is not always transparent.
  2. Think about end-of-life. There are many factors that have to be taken into account to make an informed choice. One of the aspects important in the circular procurement of office supplies is to study in advance and establish what will happen with these supplies at the end-of-life.
  3. Create a support base. It’s important to gain support from internal customers, both top-down and bottom-up.
  4. Rationalise what needs to be printed/what’s necessary.
