We believe in creating a sustainable environment for us and for those who follow. Our sustainability strategy consists of four pillars that align with our business: Supply Chain; Products & Customers; People & Community; and Environment & Climate Change. These pillars illustrate the commitments we have made, including specific targets in areas where we have the most meaningful impact.
As an international business we partner with other Bunzl businesses throughout the world to bring leading sustainability practice to our region. Our Sustainability Steering Committee provides leadership in the delivery of our sustainability strategy across Asia-Pacific. We report quarterly on sustainability to the Bunzl Board and participate in Bunzl global sustainability forums.
Any changes to reduce environmental impact will be within appropriate safety parameters and reviewed within our supply chain.
The next decade will be decisive in the world’s ability to tackle climate change; and we recognise that our direct operations, distribution network and supply chain are all part of the challenge.
We have ambitious plans to reduce the carbon emissions from our operations and our fleet. This includes optimising energy efficiency, solar installations, and the purchase of renewable electricity. In addition, our fleet will transition to hybrid vehicles by 2025. Once implemented our carbon reduction plan will see emissions from our operations and fleet reduce significantly.
Interpath is a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO).
We believe that through diversity we build strength. By creating an equitable and inclusive work environment, we create opportunities for growth. We treat our employees fairly and equally, which means they have all the resources they need for success.
The principles of diversity and inclusion apply to our recruitment, training, promotion, transfer, reward management and performance appraisal procedures, in addition to all terms and conditions of employment.
We recognise modern slavery is a global issue that requires global action. As an international business we are wholly committed to eliminating modern slavery practices and respecting human rights across both our own operations and throughout our supply chain.
Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement sets out the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chain or in any part of our business, because we believe that our global supply chain brings local benefits.
Our Business Code of Conduct and Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy set out standards in which we expect our employees to comply with.
