OfficeMax has issued its first Corporate Social Responsibility report (PDF). According to the report, OfficeMax reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by more than 32,000 metric tons from 2005 to 2006.


“Over the past three years, OfficeMax has made positive strides in our business overall and in our efforts to ensure that our company operates in a socially and environmentally responsible manner,” said Sam Duncan, chairman and CEO of OfficeMax. “We committed significant effort to the compilation of our CSR Report and are proud to have this record of our accomplishments. As OfficeMax enhances programs already in place and launches new programs, we have a living document to record our progress.”

The report focuses on five areas: diversity and inclusion, working environment, community and education, natural environment and customer value.

In July, OfficeMax launched a new recycling program through its MaxPerks membership program. The system provides customers with a way to collect and redeem recyclable office items such as used ink and toner cartridges and cell phones with batteries.

In February, after a seven-year campaign against it by environmentalist groups, OfficeMax released a new paper procurement policy.
