Committed to sustainability
Museums & Galleries are taking steps across the business and supply chain to improve sustainability and lessen the company’s impact on the environment. From ecobands to green energy and more, every aspect of the business is reviewed to see where positive changes can be made. Over the last few years, M&G has developed its traditional base of paper-based cards and stationery products into gift items in other media, resulting in an ever more complex and global production and supply chain with a variety of environmental impacts. M&G is committed to a continuous process of review and change in order to improve sustainability in all its operations. This is an ongoing, progressive, businesswide effort to more sustainable product development and reducing M&G’s environmental impact. M&G was at the forefront of reducing plastic packaging for its cards, developing the ingenious, completely paper-based plastics-free ecoband which neatly ties card and envelope together whilst at the same time providing the best branding
solution. Ecobanded cards are now available across all the company’s card ranges. Introduced three years ago, ecobanded products have been tested in multiple high-traffic retail environments with huge success, and have significantly reduced the use of plastics in the business. The cards themselves, and all M&G board and paper-based products, are made from FSC certified paper. M&G is a SEDEX registered company (SEDEX is committed to more sustainable and ethical global supply chains). The M&G HQ in Corby receives its energy from a green supplier. M&G recycles existing packaging and uses old products as packing material for deliveries (they do

not buy in packing material). The company has also switched to bio-tape to replace plastic tape for all packaging. Recycling takes place across the business in the offices, warehouse and design studio. Museums & Galleries Ltd’s historic mission is to find the best and most attractive designs from Museums, galleries, designers and artists around the world, and present them on commercial products with contemporary appeal. M&G believes this mission is completely consistent with progressively developing sustainable and ecologically healthy manufacturing and business practices.
