Fellowes’ policy on sustainability fits within our overall corporate vision. Through adhering to environmentally friendly practices we are true to our ethical approach to business which requires us to acknowledge a responsibility to society. We also value simplification and efforts to reduce all forms of waste whether in terms of materials, time or effort. Combining these efforts in our day to day business can also help us achieve targeted financial returns for our shareholders while being responsible stewards of our environment.
We believe that financial, social, and environmental factors must all receive consideration in a manner that respects people in and outside of the company, and supports the communities of which they are a part, locally, nationally & internationally.
We recognize that best practice with respect to sustainability is constantly changing. A key aspect of our policy is to be diligent in understanding current best practices and to make decisions that we believe will deliver real benefits financially, socially, and environmentally.
