At The Health Ingredients Co, we believe that we all have a part to play in protecting and caring for our home – Earth.
It is our vision to create a carbon neutral company. We have begun our journey by creating a positive impact on the environment. To do this, we have partnered with Carbon Neutral’s Plant-a-Tree Program to plant 500 trees in Western Australia in 2020.
Carbon Neutral carries out large-scale revegetation of degraded farmlands. The Carbon Neutral Plant-a-Tree Program allows organisations to actively support this vital work by funding the planting of mixed native species in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor. Woodlands and forests play a crucial role in cleaning and cooling the air. Their many gifts to humanity include acting as natural water pumps to reduce dryland soil salinity. These green pockets reduce erosion from wind and water, recycle nutrients for agriculture and support habitats for wildlife. Carbon Neutral’s Plant-a-Tree Program aims to restore landscapes and reproduce natural ecosystems as best as they can. So far, Carbon Neutral have planted 440,000 trees, restoring more than 300ha of cleared land.
We plan to contribute further towards Carbon Neutral’s Plant-a-Tree program and mission in 2021.
Also, from Jan 2020, we have committed to drastically reducing the plastic that we use and dispose of as a company. We have implemented changes across the board including switching all our employee related paper cups. This small change saved us from contributing an average of 700 cups per year to the 16 billion paper cups used globally for beverages year after year.
It is more than just Corporate Social Responsibility; it is who we are.
