Environmental & Social Governance

Embedded throughout our entire business and daily working practices, our ESG policy has been created to help to preserve and protect our natural environment, minimising our environmental impact while servicing our customers, suppliers, and employees alike. Heatons Group is committed to ESG as we strive to build sustainable, equitable, healthy, and diverse communities through a combination of innovative business solutions and exemplary environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance.

Working Towards Weaver

Heatons are currently working towards independent sustainability certification that will help to improve sustainable business practices across a range of areas, and allow us to plan ahead with both the environment and community at the heart of our efforts.

Partnering with Office Friendly and Avieco, a leading provider in business sustainability services, their expert teams help businesses of varying size, from a wide range of industries, to understand and overcome their sustainability challenges, identify tangible opportunities and provide clear action to enhance sustainability. Avieco takes on clients’ sustainability challenges as if they were their own – with passion, energy and expertise – finding clear, practical sustainability solutions that really work for business.


Focusing on areas where we can reduce our consumption of raw materials, fuel and energy is the first step in improving our environmental impact and reducing our carbon footprint.


Extending the life of packaging and products such as toners through reuse, as well as eliminating single-use plastics, minimises waste and the demand for further manufacturing.


Working alongside our registered waste disposal partner, we achieve 0% waste to landfill, as well as recycling all cardboard, stretch-wrap, paper and toner cartridges used on-site.

We will continue with an objective to reduce our carbon footprint by at least 5% on an annual basis through a series of initiatives including but not limited to our vehicle fleet; energy sources to our buildings; buying locally where possible and reducing, reusing; and recycling throughout the business where possible.

Social Responsibility

We believe that social responsibility is about working together to implement our ESG strategies that will have a long-term impact and the wider communities we serve. We have a series of Social Responsibility Champions throughout the business to ensure that our policies are successfully implemented.

Charity Matters VIEW STRATEGY

We reduce, reuse and recycle providing recycling bins across all our sites. We recycle 100% of our toners, paper and batteries, over 500 tons of cardboard each year and over 50 tons of stretch wrap.

550 tons, that’s the equivalent to the weight of 133 adult male hippos.

We source products which are manufactured by methods that are less harmful to the worlds resources and are looking to introduce more environmentally-friendly ranges.

Our catalogue includes over 3,000 sustainable eco-friendly, recycled, Fairtrade and PEFC products.

All of the particle board we use is both FSC and PEFC compliant.

FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) schemes are non-profit organisations concerned with ensuring the responsible and sustainable management of forests.
