E-waste

How Staples sends e-commerce waste packing

Mark Buckley, vice president of environmental affairs at Staples, has been with the company for more than two decades — and in a sustainability role for 15 years. 

"Businesses have gone through an evolution of change in the past 15 years," he said, including sustainability having become a core value for corporations and their customers.

Staples, which has the world's third-largest e-commerce business, is investing in its values of reducing environmental impact. He discusses Staples' new "right size packaging" and sustainable innovation lab, which is making services more profitable, efficient and better for the world.
