Office Depot’s head of environmental strategy honored

Boca Raton, Fla. Office Depot Thursday announced that its director of environmental strategy, Yalmaz Siddiqui, was recognized by the Responsible Purchasing Network, an influential network of buyers focused on socially responsible and environmentally sustainable purchasing, as “Responsible Purchaser of the Year.”

According to Chris O’Brien, senior director of the Responsible Purchasing Network, “Yalmaz’s work developing the 2009 Office Depot Green Book catalog of green office products demonstrates his extraordinary commitment to advancing sustainable procurement. Yalmaz sought RPN input for the standards and specifications portion of the new Green Book and then implemented many of our key recommendations. Yalmaz’s approach on behalf of Office Depot reflects corporate best practices in stakeholder engagement, green product definition and green marketing.”
