Sustainability is at the heart of Industree Group. Dedicated to minimising our impact on the environment and seeking improved future outcomes, Industree Group has introduced several significant sustainability initiatives, with more to come.
According to Industree Group CEO, Jon Fleming; “We believe that sustainability is the key to a brighter future and understand our responsibility in reducing our environmental footprint, which is why we are committed to always getting better.” Industree Group is actively demonstrating its commitment to this by implementing meaningful sustainability initiatives.
To responsibly manage and proactively mitigate our environmental impacts, Industree Group deploys innovative technologies, processes, and initiatives.
Practical initiatives have been implemented including the installation of 96 solar panels on our warehouse, recycling all paper and cardboard products, reusing corrugated cardboard and cartons, and reducing the use of stretch wrap with pallet bands and straps. Industree Group has also partnered with TerraCycle, an international leader in recycling innovation, to offer clients the opportunity to recycle PPE such as respirators and protective eyewear. Other initiatives include implementing energy-saving devices to reduce electricity use, minimising the use of water, and carpooling among staff.
“We have also introduced an incentive program to encourage our workforce to purchase hybrid or electric vehicles, and we will install a charging station once we have more electric vehicles in our fleet”, explains Fleming.
Another way Industree Group is driving sustainability results is through our dedication to gaining significant accreditations and certificates, making the business globally recognised for our efforts.
Some of these highly sought-after and prestigious awards and accreditations include Silver Status EcoVadis certification as well as SCS Responsible Forestry Certified / Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certifications.
Industree Group has been a Carbon Zero certified company since 2011, meaning that our entire carbon footprint/emissions are offset to counter their impact on the environment.
Industree Group recognises that a crucial part of our sustainability program involves protecting people. “Our employees, customers and partners are our greatest asset, and we continue to strive to provide a safe caring place to work,” explains Fleming.
A focus on mental well-being and health is integral to developing and maintaining a positive culture. Over the next 12 months, Industree Group plans to roll out a staff wellness program and a new return to work program. Industree Group were thrilled to be onboard as the major sponsor of one of the largest step challenges #MOVEAGAINSTCANCER 2023. “Our dedicated team stepped up to the challenge of getting in as many steps as possible during September to promote awareness and raise funds for Cancer Council,” says Fleming.
We are genuinely committed to continually supporting the community and are involved in a variety of significant partnerships including Industree Group Stadium, Manly Sea Eagles and many more. Industree Group recently partnered with Molly Picklum, World Champion Surfer as our Brand Ambassador. “Molly’s strong sense of community and passion for the environment makes this a natural fit for Industree Group,” says Fleming.
The Industree Group team acknowledges that there is still a lot more work to do and is committed to always doing better.
Whether it's reducing your energy consumption, recycling more, or supporting sustainable-focused businesses, we all have a role in creating a greener future. Together, we can make a difference and create a healthy, happy, and sustainable world for many generations to come.
