We supply a diverse range of office products and stationery, many of which are classed as environmentally friendly green products.

Our 5 Star range offers more than 260 green products.

OMM and the Environment

We wholeheartedly believe in taking all possible steps to create a sustainable environment. As a company dedicated to the production and management of high quality documents, we have a healthy respect for the environment and are commited to its conservation.

Paper with Minimal Impact

We work with the largest distributor of cut-sheet paper in Europe and are committed to delivering paper that causes the lowest environmental impact. This reduces the complete life cycle from raw materials to the recycling of waste. Minimising energy usage helps to control both costs to businesses and the detrimental effect upon the environment.

Free Recycling

We are happy to collect and recycle any of our packaging used toners and old mobile phones. This free service helps contribute towards our goal of zero waste to landfill. This service does not cover any other waste generated by your business. Our logistics hub is located within 3 miles of the City of London, ensuring minimal carbon emissions.

Our Accreditations

We are committed to maintaining and developing best practice procedures in accordance with BS EN ISO 14001 and 14004 guidelines to institute an Environmental Management System. This benchmark-setting system demands the submission of objects and auditable evidence to prove that we are conforming to their high standards.

Choose your office products carefully by looking out for the different logos


 
Green Logo

The Swan logo demonstrates that a product is a good environmental choice.

Nordic Swan – The Swan is the official Nordic Eco-label, introduced by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Swan logo demonstrates that a green office product is a good environmental choice. The Nordic Eco-labeling criteria are based on evaluation of the environmental impacts during the life cycle of the product. The inks are either alcohol-based or water-based and are not hazardous to health or the environment. There are also no chlorinated plastics or heavy metals in the products.

Green Dragon

Green Dragon – An environmental green management system relevant to the specific needs of the manufacturer. Participating organisations gain recognition for effective environmental management without necessarily adopting a formal management system. The standard is made up of five steps, each incorporating the key elements of Planning, Taking Action, Checking Progress and Reviewing Achievements to realise continual environmental improvement.

FSC

FSC – The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international network to promote responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC brings people together to find solutions to the problems created by bad forestry practices and to reward good forest management. FSC policies and standards aim to make the greatest possible contribution to forest stewardship worldwide. FSC works to be recognised as the global centre of excellence in the development of international standards for forest certification.

The Green Dot

The Green Dot (Der Grüne Punkt) – The manufacturers of these products have paid for the collection, sorting and recycling of the product’s packaging. Most packaging is only used once, but this does not mean that it automatically becomes waste. The valuable raw materials from which packaging is produced can be used to manufacture new products. Since 1990, the Green Dot has been ensuring that used packaging is collected, sorted and recovered in line with the German Packaging Ordinance.

Fairtrade

Fairtrade – This is an independent consumer label that guarantees a better deal for workers and producers from poor and developing countries, ensuring that workers receive a fair wage to invest in the future. Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional international trade. It is trading which aims at sustainable development for excluded and disadvantaged producers. It seeks to do this by providing better trading conditions, by raising awareness and by campaigning.

The Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP)

The Ethical Tea Partnership (ETP) - An alliance of major tea packing companies work together to promote social responsibility in the world tea trade and ensure the ethical sourcing of tea. ETP defines ethical trade as a shared responsibility to ensure that the social and ethical conditions involved in growing the tea that its members buy meets, at a minimum, local laws, trade union agreements and some international standards and to encourage improvements where needed. It does this through independent monitoring of six key areas of tea estate life: employment (including minimum age and wage levels), education, maternity, health and safety, housing and some areas of basic human rights.

Fairtrade Office Products

"Fairtrade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development". OMM promotes office products under the Fairtrade Mark to the UK office products industry. We believe in offering customers a choice. That choice includes the ability to buy ethically traded products, sourced from producers in developing countries.

These Fairtrade products are sold throughout our catalogues, but they are featured prominently in our Green/ Fairtrade catalogue.
