The Paper Chain

Find out about our new ‘Closed Loop’ system for internal paper.


Last year, we used around 11,800 tonnes of paper for internal and external use, which is roughly the same weight as 2,000 elephants. Because of this, we’re always looking for ways to improve the environmental credentials of the paper we use, which is why all our paper for external use is sourced from a responsibly managed forest.

We recently reviewed how we could improve the sustainability of the paper we use internally and when our stationery supplier Banner approached us with a completely new way of doing things, we jumped at the chance! It’s what people in sustainability call a ‘Closed Loop’ system and it means that for our internal paper use, we’re using the same paper over and over – and over - again.
