Sustainability is something we
take very seriously. As key supply partners to some of NZ’s largest
organisations, we believe the importance of creating a better world is a
journey and a way of life we must embrace. We have invested with Enviro-Mark®
(trading as Toitū Envirocare) to ensure we are taking all reasonable and
posible steps to reduce our impact on the environment. Our business practices
are completely transparent and each year we review, measure, and reflect on our
impact our operations have had and assess where and how we can make
Since starting our sustainability
initiative, we have developed our own Environmental Management System (EMS)
designed to control documentation and help us to achieve our sustainability
objectives and targets, while encouraging and inspiring us to continually
improve our sustainability efforts.
By December 2021 3S Safety will
be Toitu Enviro-Mark® Gold accredited by certified audit.
This begins with 3S Safety Ltd, acknowledging that our
business sells products that are made using fossil fuels, they are built and
stored in factories using electricity and emitting carbon into the atmosphere.
We despatch our products around New Zealand using boxes and bags. We drive cars
and travel. Knowing we are part of the problem guides us to focus on those
areas of the business where we can reduce, neutralise, or eliminate our direct
impact on climate change.
Our EMS is a step by step approach that begins with our Environmental
policy. This policy provides the basis for setting targets and objectives
against which we collect data to then analyse and measure our performance. We
then evaluate this performance against our objectives and then take action to
reduce any negative environmental or social impacts resulting from our own
operations, products, or services.
Our Directors, Management and key stakeholders attend
regular meetings to review and refine our performance. We are audited annually
by external consultants. This is to ensure we are delivering on our commitment
Environmental Sustainability and guide on a journey to a greener, more sustainable
