Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality what proportion of office supplies purchased by the Government Equalities Office were recycled products in the latest period for which figures are available. (275334)

No precise figures are available but the Government Equalities Office selects genuinely green supplies wherever possible. All copier paper, for example, is from recycled sources and all toner cartridges are recycled. GEO contracts with a supplier that has won a number of environmental awards, works to the international standard for environmental management and clearly identifies “environmentally preferred” products in its catalogue.
