Whenever, wherever possible we purchase materials that have the lowest possible impact on the natural environment. We prefer to purchase materials that recycle and reusable products and purchase in bulk to reduce packaging. Purchase locally produced fair trade and organic goods.

Reduce energy/water consumption

Reduce energy consumption as much as possible in our office by the following implement action,

  • We have replaced more energy-efficient lighting LED light bulbs instead of original lighting bulbs.
  • Set the switch-off policy in our office to save energy on lighting & electrical equipment and ensure that office lights switched-off when space is not being used and after office hours.
  • Awareness stickers and signs are set on the noticeboard that made by our staff to remind them. 
  • Ensure all staff members are aware of not taps running. In our office, we use the squatting pan toilet to reduce the water that consumes less water per flush than Western toilets.

Reduce waste consumption

  • Waste is reduced, separated, reused and recycled at our office. Separated the waste for recycling of plastic, glass, cans, paper & cardboard and sent to Recyglo to know monthly measurable waste and implement for reduction monthly.
  • We think twice before printed and only print when if it’s really necessary. Print double-sided and Re-use single printed for notes or draft prints. We save paper by sending ticket invoices and mainly via email, other social networks whenever possible.
  • Providing refillable water bottles for our staff members, purchase in large water bottles (20 liters) and use mugs and glasses to drink water for our customers who come to our office to reduce the use of plastic water bottles. Our staff also use the reusable box for lunch packaging.

Reduce pollution for our environment

Life has become unimaginable without transport. And most of the vehicles need fossil fuel that produces greenhouse gases and becomes global warming and climate change.
