Certification story

Codex was founded to offer its customers great value and unbeatable local service on their day-to-day office supplies. By constantly evolving its ranges and offerings, Codex has grown to become the largest supplier of office supplies and services to the Irish market.

By understanding the nature of its industry and the footprint it leaves behind, Codex has looked over the past number of years to deliver tangible and effective environmental solutions to its customers. Central to its environmental efforts is a process of continuous monitoring of waste associated with the packaging of its office supplies. Codex is a certified participant in the Repak packaging waste recovery scheme.

In this crucial Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. Over the next year, Codex is committed to tackling climate change and inspiring others to join the movement.

Through Planet Mark, the company are protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

The company is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. Codex looks forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.
