“Tannas is one step closer to its mission of becoming London’s most sustainable office supplier. Tannas has made changes in its organisation that have greatly reduced its planetary footprint. This will give its customers peace of mind that Tannas is walking the walk on sustainability. Well done to the team on some fantastic progress in a challenging year for business.”

Certification story

Tannas started as a stationery shop in North West London in 1976 and are proud to still be providing stationery and more to customers all over the UK. Tannas are on a mission to make products available to everyone easily & environmentally friendly. Beyond the commitment to continually reduce carbon emissions, the company is achieving this through recyclable packaging, using a sustainable courier, and committing to electric vehicles throughout its fleet.

A sustainable business is not only one that is good for the planet but is always one that is primed to offer the necessary services to modern businesses. There is a tremendous opportunity to be taken by companies that embrace sustainability. This manifests not only in the growing market for sustainable products but also in moving beyond environmental compliance to establish processes that will become the new normal in the foreseeable future.
