Apparelmaster Group - Corporate Social Responsibility, Environmental Policy and Commitments
We as a group believe that Corporate Social Responsibility is to operate with a high regard for the quality of life of our people and local communities, as well as for the wider communities and the natural environment that we impact when undertaking our business.
We are committed to continually re-examining the way we do business and by encouraging our suppliers and customers to do the same.
We are aiming to do this by aligning with five of the United Nation's Sustainability Development Goals, setting short, medium, and long goals with a view to completion by 2023. Our progress will be formally monitored and reviewed by our Carbon and Sustainability program science partners at Instep.
The environment and minimising our impact upon it is a huge foundation of Apparelmasters values, and we aim to reduce it by improving energy and water efficiency through wise investment in technology and considering alternative energy sources where available.
Apparelmaster New Zealand is committed to minimising adverse effects on the environment, and delivering benefits to all stakeholders, from our employees to our clients.
This will be achieved through:
Keeping up to date, and complying with, environmental legislation and local government policies and plans.
Minimising waste through recycling where appropriate and disposing of any waste in an environmentally acceptable manner.
Purchasing and providing goods and services that are manufactured, used and disposed of in a way that has minimal adverse effects on our environment.
