Damart chooses its stationery items in a responsible way
|In domains||Clothing, Reuse of Materials|
Damart, a company conscious of its environmental responsibilities, decided to change things as far as the purchase of stationery items is concerned. This is indeed a cross departmental field and it enables every employee, as an integral part of the whole company, to become aware of how things can be changed.
Damart is doing this by cutting by 20% the use of stationery items with a high ecological footprint such as sheets of paper or print cartridges.
Recyclable paper is collected in specific boxes in every office, in partnership with the Clinitex cleaning company. Print cartridges are collected in partnership with the Conibi and Alter Buro companies to recycle them.
Recycled paper is used in priority. Documents that can be printed in a lower quality within the company (such as pay slips, and delivery slips) are identified, and printers and copying machines are provided so.
Printing waste and envelopes containing internal documents are collected to make stationery items such as notebooks, file folders, etc.
Some documents are converted to PDF files: product documents, some accounting documents and financial records.
There are more and more departmental printers, and less documents are printed by the employees as a result.
Every employee is made aware of the company's approach. When stationery items are made available by the purchasing department, information is given on an intranet and through posters located near the copying machines and the printers.
♦ Each ton of recyclable paper is bought from the company at a rate of 26,70 euros ; Damart’s return on investmenr is 41,053 euros a year as a result.
♦ Buying recycled organic paper has saved Damart 3,500 euros.
♦ Converting printing waste into stationery items has Made Damart save 2,700 euros.
