Sustainability at Avgol™
- Doing things better
Environmental, social and economic responsibility is core to our vision, mission and values. At Avgol™, we’re committed to how we as a business (and as humans) can better co-exist with nature alongside our need to use natural resources. We do this by taking a proactive approach to our sustainable practices; using sustainability as a guide to improve our operations to allow us to work better. Not only that, we’re committed to continuously developing our policies and ways of working to ensure our colleagues, customers, partners, and local or partner communities can live better. Finally, we hope to grow better as a result of our forward-thinking sustainability strategy.
Read on for a summary of how we aim to do the right thing, better. Or, for further reading on our policies relating to sustainability, please download our Global Integrated Business Management Systems Policy statement.
Live Better: Environmental Sustainability
Our products and services are developed in line with - but not limited to - the latest sustainability legislation. Going beyond the standard requirements, we aim to drive greater resource efficiency, consider alternative renewable solutions and incorporate green and bio-based technologies. We’re working towards a future in which the waste we produce and our carbon footprint is significantly reduced.
- Build the foundation of our sustainability strategy on our ISO 14001 accreditation. The international environmental management standard
- Develop resource efficient products. Less packaging, with the same high-quality functionality
- Champion zero manufacturing waste to landfill and recyclability potential of products. Support a less wasteful environment for future generations
- Drive increased energy efficiency. Reduced consumption of natural resources such as water
- Decrease C02 and energy emissions. Maximize renewable materials and energy, and champion a mindful logistics strategy, to help reduce our carbon footprint
Work Better: Social Sustainability
Similar to our approach to environmental sustainability, we don’t feel duty-bound to do the right thing in terms of social responsibility. We believe it’s intrinsic to creating an environment in which colleagues, partners and communities can thrive. Our policy is to invest in the people and communities we interact with to drive our vision of a future in which we live better.
- Keep our people, customers and consumers safe. Meet and maintain excellent health and safety standards
- Invest in our people. Give our employees the support they need today to create a brighter future for tomorrow
