Yalmaz Siddiqui, Senior Director of Environmental Strategy, Office Depot
Office Depot’s three environmental aspirations are to “Buy Green,” “Be Green” and “Sell Green.” How are they doing? They have achieved the widest green product assortment in the office products industry. They have reduced their electricity use by over 20% and have saved at least 21,000 tons of waste from landfills. And they have helped thousands of customers reduce the environmental impact of their businesses. After I heard Mr. Siddiqui present at a higher education sustainability conference, I concluded Office Depot is taking big steps and making a big impact. Join us to decide what you think.
