Epzen has an intrinsic commitment to the environment. We are therefore very proud of our Low CO2 Certification* from the Carbon Reduction Institute – Australia’s most reliable and experienced carbon consulting company.
Epzen offsets 100 per cent of its operational emissions*
To achieve this important certification, we undertook a full audit of our operational carbon emissions. We now have an inventory of all our operational emissions, measured per tonne of carbon dioxide. This includes emissions from:
– Staff road and air travel
– Electricity and gas
– Waste and recycling
Our carbon inventory allows us to clearly understand our emissions, determining how to reduce and offset them.
Epzen offsets every tonne of carbon emitted through our operations by purchasing carbon credits. These credits help fund wind and solar projects in China. The China Wind and China Solar Projects provide renewable, clean energy sources for power, significantly reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and the emission of harmful air pollutants such as sulphur and nitrous oxides, helping reduce negative health impacts.
Epzen Australia takes extensive measures to ensure our products, cartons, shipping boxes and marketing materials are recyclable wherever possible. We recognise that we have a responsibility to our environment and will continue to improve the sustainability of our packaging with the help of the Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation.
