British Loose Leaf scoops CSR prize
Stationery manufacturer British Loose Leaf (BLL) has won a major corporate social responsibility award in recognition of its sustainability and recycling efforts as part of its business practices.
The company, which is based in Crayford, Kent, was given the Corporate Express 2007 Service Excellence Award for Corporate Social Responsibility.
BLL received the accolade in recognition for its Recycling Guaranteed programme, which involves the company taking back its files from customers when they have used them and recycling them.
Presenting the award, Corporate Express managing director Dylan Jones said: "British Loose Leaf have taken the filing section one step further in the CSR field by taking back BLL files, when customers have finished with them, to recycle them, ensuring they close the recycling loop."
BLL managing director, Jonathan Levy, added: "Our recycling business model is universally accepted as a great innovation, but it needs the support of distribution channels to make it feasible for end users. Corporate Express have taken the lead in presenting it to customers, with outstanding results."
Among the organisations participating in the BLL recycling programme are HSBC, Bradford and Bingley, Hampshire County Council and the British Standards Institute.
