Emerge (NE) LTD recognises that its activities have an impact on the environment. Through its business model, we aim to contribute to the sustainable development of society and that of the environment with which we interact.
Where ever possible we will inform you of the recycled content of our products.
All of our products are packaged within boxes, which are 100% recyclable. We can also offer you recycling bins for you to send back to us your used toner cartridges. These are then recycled with all the proceeds raised going to reputable charities
With over 45 years’ experience in the Office Supplies Industry, Emerge (NE) LTD have been supplying over 250,000 stationery, interior, care and hospitality related products, to our North East and nationwide clients.
Since 2011 we have been working with the award-winning Carbon Smart, a certified organisation, to monitor the impact our business has on the environment.
For 2020 our carbon footprint was measured at 11.3 tonnes. We’re proud to have been awarded a Silver level certification that recognises we are reducing our environmental impact.
Our So Go Eco programme has identified our use of Fuel, Electric and Waste as three key areas. To help us reduce this figure by 5 % by the end of 2020.
Moving forward, Emerge (NE) Ltd will look to ensure that its carbon footprint continues to decrease year on year. The emissions associated with Emerge’s fleet represent over 80% of its carbon footprint and are a key area to target. An investment in hybrid or electric vehicles would significantly reduce the businesses carbon footprint and our aim is to become 100% carbon neutral by 2025. In the meantime Emerge will continue with route planning and fuel-efficient driver training to ensure that fuel used by the vehicle fleet is kept to a minimum. By demonstrating exceptional actions such as these, Emerge can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability to customers and strive to achieve Carbon Smart Gold Certification in 2021.
