Our Sustainability Vision

Ecopaper Pty Ltd, is an innovative Australian company with a history of over 20 years in recycled paper, eco stationery manufacture and marketing of eco products. The founders, Con, Moni and Dave, started with a passion to introduce more sustainable office and gift stationery products to the Australian market. This passion has continued throughout the long journey and the ups and downs of the development of the green marketplace in Australia. Now our vision has grown to be an innovative industry leader in advising and providing businesses and organisations throughout Australia with genuine eco products for their everyday and special promotional needs, and helping them to work and promote their activities more sustainably.

 

Sustainability means:

Conducting our business, and providing our customers with eco products that they need, in a way that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

 

Our objectives:

To achieve best practice environmental practices across our operations, in addition to complying with all laws, regulation and industry standards

To implement programs that minimize our use of energy, water and non-renewable resources. Examples of this are use of both 100% GreenPower and installed Solar PV power; rainwater harvesting and reuse plus solar hot water heating at our head office; recycling and composting; using recycled office and other products.

To achieve reductions of waste produced in our operations by applying the principles of Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Examples of this include minimising packaging of products, minimising use of non-renewable forms of packaging, reusing packaging that we receive, using pre-used transport cartons and using recycled and biodegradable products throughout our operations.

To utilise Enterprise and Life Cycle Analysis and Freight calculators for the estimated carbon emissions for the products that we supply to our customers and to make a contribution to offsetting these emissions and the emissions from our Operations with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) or Verified Emission Reduction Units (VERs) or verified equivalent as a service to our customers and to the environment in which we operate. This is achieved by offsetting estimated operational carbon emissions and making a contribution towards offsetting product life-cycle carbon emissions with C3 Climate Chest (see next column).

To only source and supply products that meet at least two of our environmental criteria: recycled, biodegradable, sustainable, organic, reusable, and have reduced environmental impact.

To source and promote certified eco products where possible, while recognising that certification is still a fairly new concept in this industry. Examples of this are our FSC-certified timber products; Nordic EcoLabel Markers.

To engage in ethical business relationships and practices, including support of selected environmental, community and aid organisations.

To take personal responsibility and to practice sustainability principles in our personal lives as well as our business and professional lives.

To communicate the policy and these objectives to our employees, contractors, suppliers, customers and the public in order to enhance the awareness of these groups to our commitment to responsible environmental and sustainability management.
