We recognise that the biggest difference we can make is the way we approach our supply chain - ensuring the ethical sourcing of products and offering our customers a wide range of environmentally-friendly and socially-responsible products. As part of our commitment to sustainability, we have developed the NXPlanet classification to help our customers identify products that provide environmental and/or social benefits over their life cycle.
Keeping up with sustainability is as easy as keeping your eye out for our NXPlanet logo. This classification means a supplier has met our ethical sourcing requirements and the product meets one or more of our criteria.
