TORONTO- JULY 13, 2017 — Freeman Audio Visual Canada is proud to announce that Grand & Toy (G&T), an affiliate of global office products provider Office Depot, Inc., has awarded Freeman its Leadership in Greener Purchasing Award in the Technology and Telecom Sector. This awards program recognizes customers as leaders in their sector for purchasing products with environmental attributes and ecolabels.
The leadership awards were based primarily on the percentage of the customers’ expenditure on products with greener attributes including recycled, remanufactured, energy-efficient, and/or ecolabels such as FSC, EPEAT, GREENGUARD, GreenSeal, EcoLogo, etc., with G&T in 2016. Customers whose business relationship with G&T was based primarily on one or two product categories were excluded to ensure recognition was given to those with broad-based greener purchasing programs.
“Sustainable management continues to be an integral part of our company culture,” said David Campbell, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Freeman Audio Visual Canada. “We are grateful to G&T for providing us with office product recycling solutions that align with our company corporate social responsibility goals.”
