Officeworks grows sustainable paper sources

Officeworks is committed to the sustainable sourcing of paper. In 2016, Officeworks set itself the target of increasing sales of office supplies products with 100 per cent recycled content or with Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. This includes all products ranging from paper and exercise books to pencils and archival boxes.

In 2015, sales of paper or wooden-based office supplies products with 100 percent recycled content or FSC certification was 38 per cent of total sales of these products. In 2016, this increased to 60 per cent.

During the year, Officeworks partnered with Australian Paper to produce the Officeworks exclusive Keji and J.Burrows premium papers. These two paper products are the only Australian manufactured FSC certified papers sourced from local FSC certified forest.
