Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First and co-founder of The Planet Mark, said: “I am so pleased to see NuServe join The Planet Mark. Their hard-working team has a commitment to sustainability that is plain to see, and the opportunity to spread the message of sustainability to offices and workplaces throughout their network is huge. As businesses across the country think about how their work impacts the planet, think about NuServe as a credible, sustainable supplier that can meet a range of your office needs.”
First-year certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
NuServe complements The Planet Mark certification with a number of other sustainable measures. All of its paper products are supplied from sustainable sources, as well as a range of environmentally friendly soaps and chemical-free cleaning products. NuServe is constantly looking to diversify the way its stock can reduce the impact it has on the environment through the products it chooses. This can help its clients reduce water pollution, plastic waste and air quality in their local environment.
In a decade of climate action, business has been tasked with overseeing dramatic changes in its contribution to climate change. Many are turning to their supply chain for the answers.
