What we do to make a difference!
When you buy from 5 Star Office, you are using an ISO14001 accredited supplier. The environmental agenda may have been suppressed in 2020 with the arrival of the Coronavirus threat but we hope it will feature back at the top of our lists soon!
Here at 5 Star office, when it comes to environmental matters, we place great emphasis on what people do rather than what people say. Which is why we focus each year on our ISO14001 audit process and ensure we continue the journey we started some years ago to fully neutralise our trading impact on the environment.
We offer a portable battery take-back service. If you send your batteries back to us, they can be deposited for recycling using facilities in our warehouse. We are only able to accept portable batteries, which means those that can be easily carried by hand. Larger batteries, including automotive and industrial batteries, can be recycled across the UK and you can find more information on how to do this at www.recyclenow.com. Please contact customer services for more details.
A business powered by the sun:
Rather than source our electricity from conventional coal fired power stations (or worse!), we’ve installed our own solar panels to guarantee we are producing clean, green electricity to power the business.
