Our aim is to move into the future in the most ecologically sound way possible, encouraging our clients to do the same. The journey to sustainability is never ending, and we are committed to taking decisive action to ensure that we achieve tangible, meaningful change.

Sustainability is a priority as we develop our own business processes, and we closely interrogate the actions of our partners and suppliers to ensure our green vision is consistent throughout the business

We’re getting smart on how to reuse every day materials to reduce the use of energy and raw material, whether new or recycled.

We will set an example to contribute positively with recycling practices that will contribute to the health of our planet.

RESPECT

Our goal is to demonstrate respect for the planet across 100% of our operations.

We’re committed to ensuring the waste created by our supply chain is reused and recycled.

We have programmes to ensure the ingredients and materials we use in our wholly owned products are sourced with care.

We source all paper and other materials responsibly, protecting sustainable forests and recycling across the business.

We encourage employees to be mindful of the resources and energy they use in their daily operations.

We set goals for our suppliers, creating and testing processes that go beyond what is required by law. 

This is just the beginning of our sustainability journey.

 

We have eliminated plastic milk bottles used for staff refreshments and now use glass bottles which are returned to the milkman and reused. This has saved over 2080 plastic bottles.

We use re-manufactured printer cartridges, have recycled 100’s of printer cartridges and use only 100% recycled paper for printing and copying.

 

By sending international shipments by sea instead of air we have reduced C02 emissions by 84%

We recycle about 25kg of electrical items every month, both from iiaa and from personal staff items.
