LEARN­ING CURVE

Element - - Upfront -

Sta­tionery gi­ant Crox­ley is mak­ing huge gains to­wards sus­tain­able busi­ness prac­tice, with 185 of its prod­ucts ap­proved by En­vi­ron­men­tal Choice as of this month. All of these prod­ucts are man­u­fac­tured in New Zealand. This means the prod­ucts reach strict en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards and use non car­cino­genic inks. Fur­ther ac­cred­i­ta­tions in­clude CE­MARS, the first two steps of Car­bonzero cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, and En­vi­ro­mark. It’s also a stream­lined op­er­a­tion these days, with waste to land­fill re­duced by 60%, electricity con­sump­tion down 17%, emis­sions down al­most 10% and 450 tonnes of pa­per and card­board re­cy­cled, all since 2008.
