Sustainability Touches Everything at Office Depot

Office Depot is committed to integrating sustainability throughout the organization, says Yalmaz Siddiqui, director of environmental strategy for the company. Siddiqui explains this approach, which is summarized in a strategic framework that Office Depot calls, "Buy Green, Be Green, Sell Green." A number of supply chain initiatives fall under the "Be Green" heading. In addition, a "Why Green" category on the front end helps functional groups initiate projects and make the business case, and a "Tell Green" category on the back end celebrates and shares successes both within Office Depot and externally. [Run Time (Min): 12:15]
