Johnsons launches first paperless catalogue
BALI Registered Affiliate Johnsons of Whixley, which has supplied over 700,000 plants to garden centres this year, would usually have its catalogue printed and sent out to customers. This year they have gone paperless for the first time in 50 years to reduce paper wastage and to help the environment.
Johnsons is one of a few businesses that can claim to be a real net contributor to the environment, from growing and supplying over 7 million plants and trees per year, to low emission vehicles. Its irrigation system uses rainfall and runoff water from its reservoirs. The plants they supply beautify UK wide planting schemes and private gardens helping reduce carbon dioxide from the air and greenhouse gases which create pollution.
It's BSI ISO 9001:2015 & 14001:2015 Quality, and Environmental standard credentials have underpinned business operations since 1992, the new paperless catalogue is one of many changes to the company's systems with order processing going paperless too.
Group Managing Director, Graham Richardson, said:
This was an obvious step for our Garden Centre Sales department. In going paperless, we have saved 10's of thousands of pages which, by the end of the next year would have ended up in the bin or recycled and would have taken time to process. The benefits are significant from both an environmental and efficiency perspective.
