In August 2018 Ethical Consumer sent a questionnaire to Wordery, which included a question about the company's environmental policy. No response was received. The company's website was searched. A line in the 'Frequently Asked Questions' was found regarding the company's 'green credentials':
"We send books in as few packages as possible – saving on materials, fuel and landfill. On top of this, all of our paper and cardboard packaging is made from recycled materials. It’s recyclable, too – meaning we’re part of a pleasingly virtuous circle of environmental care."
An environmental policy was deemed necessary to report on its environmental performance and set targets for the future. A strong policy would include two future, quantified targets, demonstrate that the company had a reasonable understanding of its main impacts, be dated within the previous two years and be independently verified.
Wordery had none of these, therefore it received Ethical Consumer's worst rating for Environmental Reporting.
