Banner, the full-service workplace supplies company, has this week launched its B Green Catalogue, which will make sustainable procurement simpler for businesses and public sector organisations across the UK.
The new sustainable products catalogue includes a vast range of sustainable alternative products in categories from cleaning and catering to office supplies and printers.
Critically, the B Green Catalogue features a guide to understanding all the different product sustainability accreditations, which meets a significant market need. Those covered include Blue Angel, Carbon Neutral, Energy Star, Fairtrade, EU Ecolabel, The Nordic Swan Ecolabel, and the Rainforest Alliance. It also covers what to look for to determine if products that don’t have any accreditations are still green and worth looking into.
Banner specialises in being an expert partner for businesses of all sizes. Its full-service, consolidated offering includes the management and distribution of essential PPE and catering supplies, office stationery and print-related equipment. The B Green Catalogue is intended to help Banner’s customers meet their sustainability targets.
Julie Hadley, CSR and Social Values Manager at Banner, says, “We’re really proud to be bringing this new catalogue to the market. Our customers have been questioning the different sustainability accreditations of their product choices, so we have worked hard to provide the level of information we know they need.
“Everyone knows the supply chain plays a huge role in an organisation’s sustainability. In drawing together products with sustainable credentials and putting them side by side, we hope customers can make easier comparisons and better choices. That said, we are fully aware that the burning question of ‘which is better?’ remains unanswered.
“Banner is a responsible supplier, and our role is to provide connected thinking and consolidated supply to our customers. That’s why it’s so important to us to be a partner and a problem solver for office managers, procurement professionals and facilities managers across the country.”
