BOSS Awards

Oct, 13th 2016

Lyreco UK team picked up the Environmental Award at the 2016 British Office Supplies & Services (BOSS) Industry Awards last night on Oct 13th for the fifth time in a row!
The awards recognise and reward companies which demonstrate excellence and successful performance of their business. And the company was delighted that its strong sustainability ethos saw it clinch yet another national honour for being an environmental leader in its field.
The company, which as one of the biggest providers of workplace supplies in the UK is simplifying life at work for thousands of businesses across the UK, has introduced a company-wide five-year plan to minimise its impact on the environment.
Initiatives have included installing a roof mounted solar photovoltaic system – the fourth largest in the UK - at its National Distribution Centre in Telford, achieving zero landfill and reducing its electricity consumption by 39 per cent in four years.
It has also introduced an apiary on site to boost the country’s ailing honeybee population and a social auditing programme for all Lyreco branded products manufactured in developing countries covering social, human rights and health, safety and environmental conditions.
Manel Roura, Quality, Safety & Sustainability Manager at Lyreco commented, ‘Winning the BOSS Environment Award five times in a row shows that sustainability is embedded in everything we do. Over the five years we have been able to demonstrate that Lyreco develops activity to reduce the environmental impact in every step of the business. It is wonderful that this is recognised externally.”
Lyreco also picked up the Environment and Sustainability Award at the recent SHD Logistics awards 2016, which celebrate excellence in the logistics industry.
