As a part of our ISO 14001:2015 commitments & objectives, we focus heavily on our resource consumption, efficiency and reduction. Recycling/reusing are heavily valued within our company and a key component of our social responsibility efforts.
Our Operations Team believes in cradle to cradle and reuses all packaging received from supplier orders (vetted as fit for use). All newly purchased packaging is either recycled or biodegradable (all ISO approved suppliers). Colour coded wheely bins are provided to ensure effective separation of waste & reusable packaging to eliminate and minimise non-recyclable waste. Currently tracking at 7.76% waste to landfill.
“I treat it like part of my home” – Head Office Warehouse Manager
We have integrated customer & service e-invoicing throughout our systems and currently tracking at 99.9% e-compliance.
To further improve our resource management, we have limited all in house paper consumption with digital filing, digital contracts & digital correspondence.
Energy efficiency policies are used to conserve energy output and reduce carbon emissions.
To offset the impact of our business courier activities to our customers, we use the UPS Carbon neutral shipments scheme. The UPS’s carbon neutral option supports projects that offset the emissions of the shipment’s transport.
UPS has supported projects that include reforestation, landfill gas destruction, wastewater treatment, and methane destruction.
