Our commitment to corporate social responsibility

For over 30 years we’ve been servicing the Illawarra and beyond with our IT Services, Document Management & Plant-1.png
Print Solutions, and realise the impact our business has on the environment.


With this in mind we have established a strong culture committed to socially responsible behaviours, and participate in a few sustainability initiatives we’re passionate about:

 

Certified reforestation- We have partnered with Printreleaf, an international organisation which guarantees to offset the number of pages we print with an equivalent number of trees. These are certified reforestation projects which operate across the globe. We also extend this service to many of our customers, offsetting the impact of their paper usage too.

Reforestation


Zero waste from device consumables- We recycle device consumables such as toner cartridges with an Australian company called Close the Loop, and encourage our customers to join us and do the same. Some of these consumables are returned to the original manufacturer for remanufacturing, while the remainder are processed through Close the Loop's patented ‘Green Machine’. This guarantees that zero waste ends up in landfill. 

Recycling

E-Waste repurposed & recycled- When a BMS device is approaching the end of its life, our technicians place it into triage. Here they are either refurbished, kept for parts or sent to SIMS Recycling Solutions.  We highly value our partnership with SIMS as they ensure all our E-waste is securely repurposed or recycled, manually disassembling and mechanically shredding all our old technology so it can be rended into new materials.

Device Recycling

Zero waste from device packaging- Each device we sell comes securely packaged in polystyrene, cardboard and plastic. Instead of disposing of this material we take the time to manually strip and sort it, ready for A.G.M Recycling Environmental. Once collected these materials are transported, processed and recycled, ensuring zero waste from our device packaging ends up in landfill.

Recycling device packaging

Reusable coffee cups - Many of our team members enjoy takeaway coffee every day. In Australia coffee cups are one of the largest contributors to waste, each year disposing over 1 billion cups – equivalent to 60,000kg of plastic waste. To ensure the plastic lining from these coffee cups don’t end up in landfill, our team now uses Frank Green reusable coffee cups.
