Responsible Office is an initiative of Bosta, the Belgian trade federation of manufacturers, importers & distributors of paper, school, office & stationery products (www.bosta.org) responsible-office is an online information platform.
It was launched at the request of the governments in Belgium but also to help companies who value sustainability.
Both report that it is still difficult to get objective and correct information on the spot.
And that is exactly the mission of responsible-office; “provide objective information on real sustainable products so the consumer can download product data and linked certificates from our web site”.
To support objectivity products are only allowed when they can prove sustainability by at least 1 supported independent third party certificate.
In this way we want to contribute to the efforts of governments, companies, organisations and individuals who are determined to buy real sustainable products.
