How We Improve Workplaces Responsibly

We’re one of the world’s largest users of recycled paper in our products. We utilise environmentally responsible shipping, reducing our carbon footprint and diverting waste from landfills. We ensure human rights are respected in our facilities, as well as our global supply chain. We pilot product and packaging innovations that lessen our impact on the environment for generations to come.
