Global Good Awards

We wrote back in May about how pleased we were with being finalists in the GLOBAL GOOD AWARDS. Awards that recognise and reward organisations of all shapes and size. Ones that are making strides towards a better world for people, the planet and the global economy.

Today Red-Inc can proudly announce that we were awarded Silver in the category of SME OF THE YEAR.

Red-Inc – Driving sustainable and purposeful industry change

“Red-Inc were awarded silver due to their environmental approach to supplying office supplies. It helps its clients understand the impact their purchases have on the environment, as well as providing them with the tools, outlets and knowledge to reverse them”. Please read more here.

If you had asked us back in May, we would have been happy with just being finalists. You have to understand that the transition from office supplies re-seller to credible sustainable business is no mean feat. So much so that out of the thousands of dealers in the UK, there are only a few that can actual claim this.

Our core values

Our mission and drive is a part of our DNA. Sustainability isn’t a whim, a tick box and nor a one off event. It has to run deep throughout the organisation and touch every past of the operation. We are lucky at Red-Inc that Adam founded the company on these exact values. So from day one Red-Inc has been a company that aligns people and planet with profit.

That B Corp word again

As the UK`s first accredited B Corp office supplies company, certifying back in 2017 we boast some the best initiatives in space. And without question run one of the best triple line businesses in the office supplies market place.

The companies drive and passion feels nicely rewarded with this win. The judging panel consisted of individuals in the sustainability and CSR space.  So to come out victorious is a land mark event for our history. We know the challenges ahead will be complex because we need to do more, but we are on the right path.
