OfficeMax 2025 Sustainability Strategy

Sustainability is part of the overall vision at OfficeMax and has been integrated throughout our business strategy to help deliver our vision to 'Empower sustainable and successful workplaces'.

This strategy demonstrates our commitment to helping New Zealand reach its potential over the long term. It establishes a framework for our core focus areas, goals and targets to help us achieve our three aspirational strategic goals.


We participate in external audits, gain certifications for our systems and comply with legislative requirements. These certifications include:

NZ Diamond certified since 2009.
