OfficeMax Australia Honored With Two Awards By Forest Stewardship Council Australia For Commitment To Sustainability

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- OfficeMax ® Incorporated (NYSE: OMX), a leader in office and facility supplies, technology and services, today announced that the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Australia honored OfficeMax Australia with two awards – Retailer of the Year 2012 and the Responsible Procurement Award 2012 – for the subsidiary's ongoing support of sustainability and responsible forest management.

It was the second consecutive year that FSC Australia awarded OfficeMax Australia as its Retailer of the Year, which pays tribute to a retailer that has helped to create a marketplace that promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world's forests. The Responsible Procurement Award recognizes an end-user organization that demonstrates a commitment to procuring FSC-certified products as part of its corporate social responsibility strategy.

"OfficeMax has deserved these two awards and is certainly leading the way when it comes to responsible procurement and retailing by throwing its weight behind FSC ," said Natalie Reynolds, chief executive of FSC Australia.

"Receiving this honor from the Forest Stewardship Council Australia for the second year in a row is great validation for our sustainability work," said William C. Agee, managing director of OfficeMax Australia. "With our stringent paper policy, commitment to sound environmental practices, wide range of environmentally sound paper products and our dedication to educating customers and staff on environmentally sound products, our customers can be confident that they are making positive paper buying choices when they shop with us."

OfficeMax Australia has been a member of FSC Australia since 2009, and works actively with other supply and manufacturing partners to encourage them to become FSC certified. It also actively promotes FSC-certified products through its catalogues, online campaigns and direct customer engagement. Additionally, OfficeMax's private-label products demonstrate its commitment to the environment with an increasing number holding independent environmental certifications.
