Nikwax & Páramo Green Retailers

Páramo and our sister company Nikwax place huge importance on respecting our environment and investing in it for the future – it’s one of the driving forces behind both companies, in business practices as well as company ethos.

To extend this, Páramo and Nikwax are now recognising retailers who consider the environment in running their business. Our Green Retailer scheme encourages all our retailers to highlight their environmental efforts and achievements.

All our current retailers were sent a questionnaire in November 2010 about their environmental practices and commitment. Questions covered environmental policies and systems in place, energy supply, carbon ‘footprint’ and recycling streams as well as giving retailers a chance to list other initiatives that they’ve undertaken with a positive environmental impact – read about some of these below...

Companies that met the minimum score rating are recognised as Green Retailers and can display the Green Retailer 2011 logo. All those that applied have been given practical advice and pointers on how to reduce their environmental footprint. All our retailers, including new stockists for our brands, will be given regular opportunities (and advice) to achieve Green Retailer status in the future. So watch this 'green' space...
