Arrow ECS ANZ is committed to corporate responsibility. We take tangible steps to reduce our impact on the environment and maintain a Corporate Responsibility and Environmental Management System (CREMS) to ensure all employees know about our policies and how to comply.
We have developed a comprehensive carbon offset program called CarbonControl. We’ve partnered with Carbon Neutral, an Australian not-for-profit organisation, since 2008 to run the Buy One Get One Tree program. For every invoice we issue, we make a donation to Carbon Neutral, which equates to planting one native tree in Australia. As of October 2015, we have purchased 120, 890 native trees and shrubs. Based on general forestry practice in planting for sequestration this would be the equivalent of approximately 45 hectares in new tree plantings and will conservatively result in the sequestration of around 7,900-10,125 tonnes of CO2 emissions over 30 years.
Our Corporate Responsibility commitment includes shredding and recycling paper to reduce carbon emissions, reducing electricity usage by changing from T8 to T5 lighting, and encouraging staff to switch off unused equipment, recycle, and minimise printing.
We aim to continually improve our contribution to environmental sustainability, setting and reaching new targets every year.
