ARGOS - reply from

a reply received by a supporter.


Many thanks for your letter to Terry Duddy. He has asked me to reply on his behalf.

I hope you will be reassured to know that the Argos catalogue is 100% recyclable, and that all the paper sourced for the catalogue is from European forests which are sustainable and well managed. Argos has received independent third party certification of its paper sourcing from the ‘Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification’ schemes (PEFC). A statement to that effect is on the spine of the latest catalogue and explanatory notes on the scheme can be found in the catalogue on page 1809.

Additionally, Argos has its own ‘chain of custody’ (C-O-C) certification from both PEFC and the ‘Forest Stewardship Council’ (FSC) for all its paper publications.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries. You can also find out more about the Group’s responsible retailing practices by clicking on the link below.
