As a global company we are aware of the impact our worldwide sales have on the planet so we are always looking for ways in which we can reduce or off-set our carbon footprint.
Here is a summary of our initiatives:
International Distributors – we have distributors in many countries, resulting in fewer long-haul shipments of larger quantities. We also work with our courier services to off-set any carbon emissions as a result of transportation.
Packaging – we use a packaging system derived from recycled materials whilst also possessing excellent thermal properties which can keep our products chilled during shipping. Once received, the entire packaging system is also 100% recyclable.
Media bottles – our premium glass bottles can be sterilised and re-used for equilibrating and preheating media.
International Travel – where we cannot reduce our carbon footprint, we take steps to off-set it. We do this by contributing a percentage of our airfare to schemes which invest in reducing emissions / establishing sustainable wildlife areas.
Digital Communication – we take measures to reduce the amount of paper waste as a result of our day-to-day operations (electronic communications, payment processing and invoices).
