Departmental Paper

Volume 506: debated on Monday 1 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what (a) suppliers and (b) brands of (i) paper and (ii) paper products his Department uses; and what his Department’s policy is on the procurement of those materials. (320033)

Suppliers are appointed through our stationery contract with Banner Business Services and the Buying solutions paper framework contract—Antalis, Ebb, Howard Smith, McNaughton, Premier Paper, Robert Home, The Paper Company, Xerox.

Brands currently used—9 Lives, Revive, Greencoat, Cocoon, Oxygen, Evolve Business, and Cyclus. Some of these are common products, available under different brand names from different suppliers.

Within those brands it is our policy to only use products which are 100 per cent. post consumer waste if uncoated, or 75 per cent. post consumer waste if coated in line with DEFRA policy guidelines.
