Our environmental initiatives to reduce our footprint include improving efficient use of resources and the minimization of landfill and toxic waste, through recycling and partnerships with Green Gorilla and Resene.
We are working with our suppliers to eliminate the use of materials containing red list chemicals which are harmful to the users, pollute the environment and accumulate in the food chain.
In the long term, our CO2 emissions for our vehicle fleet will be reduced with the transition to suitable hybrid and eventually electric vehicles.
Toitu Envirocare annually measure our overall carbon footprint and our goal is to go beyond carbon zero and be at least double carbon positive within 5 years.
Having a framework to drive behavior changes in our company is crucial, as is measuring the effects of these changes. In 2020, we will be working towards ISO14001 certification. ISO 14001 is a standard that sets out the requirements for an environmental management system. The aim of the standard is to improve an organisations environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
