Grand-Toy-new-logoFreeman Audio Visual Canada Wins Leadership in Greener Purchasing Awards

Freeman Audio Visual Canada is proud to announce that Grand & Toy, an affiliate of global office products provider of Office Depot, Inc., has awarded Freeman its Leadership in Greener Purchasing Award in the Technology and Telecom Sector. This awards program recognizes customers as leaders in their sector for purchasing products with environmental attributes and ecolabels.

The leadership awards were based primarily on the percentage of the customers’ expenditure on products with greener attributes including recycled, remanufactured, energy-efficient, and/or ecolabels such as FSC, EPEAT, GREENGUARD, GreenSeal, EcoLogo, etc., with Grand & Toy (G&T) in 2016. Customers whose business relationship with G&T was based primarily on one or two product categories were excluded to ensure recognition was given to those with broad-based greener purchasing programs.
