As a supplier, Staples shares Verizon’s vision and dedication to sustainability and is committed to lessen the environmental footprint within our collective integrated supply/value chains. We develop innovative sustainable business solutions to help our customers meet both their business and sustainability goals.  

We continuously aspire to be our “customers trusted sustainable business solutions partner.” This is done by providing a wide assortment of products -- which meet higher environmental standards and rigorous third-party certification. We provide comprehensive sustainability reporting to help customers better understand their spending on office products and services and identify opportunities to “green up” their purchasing to meet their environmental goals and objectives.
