THE GREEN OFFICE
The Walters Group recognises that all businesses impact on the environment in a variety of ways. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and to the continual improvement of our environmental performance in our everyday operations by carefully monitoring the resources we use. For example, by following the tenets of reduce, re-use and recycle wherever possible, we have reduced waste going to landfill by over 80% since 2006.
As Peterborough aims to become the environment capital of the UK, Walters are proud to have achieved the Environment City Trust's coveted Investors in the Environment Great Green Star Award. This is one of only a limited number awarded and Walters are the only office supplies company in the region to have achieved this. Click here to find out more.
We actively encourage our customers to reduce their carbon footprint by choosing office products with proven green credentials.
