TravelCenters of America was honored with a 2022 Leadership in Greener Purchasing Award for the Travel Sector from Office Depot, a wholly owned subsidiary of The ODP Corporation (NASDAQ:ODP). TA is being awarded for embracing the highest level of sustainability choices when purchasing office supplies.
The honor is based on the TA’s high levels of green spend with Office Depot compared to others in the industry. In an award letter, Office Depot stated, “Even during this difficult year, you have decided to drive the market for eco-conscious products and help make a more positive impact on the planet. Thank you for your leadership!”
Award winners were selected from Office Depot’s largest customers based on their expenditure on products with eco-attributes such as recycled content, energy-efficiency, reduced harsh chemicals, etc., and/or ecolabels such as FSC®, EPEAT, GREENGUARD Certification, GreenSeal® and EcoLogo. Customer purchases with the highest level of meaningful eco-attributes and ecolabels were given extra weight in the selection process.
