We care

About our society and the environment.

We know that a successful company is about more than just sales and profit margins. That’s why at Staples we ensure all of our associates, suppliers, and partners meet our ethical and environmental standards, and strongly believe that our workforce should be as diverse as our customer base. We are striving to be a leader in sustainability through continuous improvement of our operations and the footprint of products. We do this because it is right for our planet, our customers, and the future of our business. In the community we provide jobs and reach out to support the causes important to our customers and our associates.

While we’ve achieved a great deal, we know that our journey to become an even better company continues. And it’s the responsibility of our current and future associates to ensure that this commitment flows through all our operations.

Community

We reach out to and support the communities in which our customers and associates live and work by creating jobs, making financial contributions, participating in outreach programs and more. Making a difference in the communities where our customers and associates live and work is something we care very much about. We promote education, youth development and community development in countries across the globe — through donations and grants, special programs, and associate and customer volunteering.

Environment

We generate business and environmental benefits — for ourselves, our customers and our communities — by leading the way in sustainable business practices.

We help make more sustainable business practices happen. We do this by sourcing and selling more eco-conscious products, improving our offering of recycling and other green services, maximizing our energy efficiency and renewable energy use, and eliminating waste.

Diversity & Inclusion

We seek to develop a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve all over the world by embracing diversity in all its forms.

At Staples, we believe that differences in age, race, gender, gender identity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, background and thinking style allow us to be more innovative as a company. We’re committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture, from supporting associate resource groups to partnering with diversity suppliers.

Ethics

A company is only as strong as its commitment to doing right. Because doing right is just as important as doing well. That’s why we approach our business with integrity and make sure that we adhere to our Code of Ethics and Corporate practices in everything we do.

We weren’t the only ones saying a heartfelt thank you to our U.S. associates when they directed $3.2 million of our money toward non-profit organizations they cared most about.
