Environmental Policy

Mission

Indigo considers environmental issues and quality as being crucial for our business and the wider community. Environmental issues are becoming more challenging. We therefore apply a high degree of importance to mitigating impacts of climate change and we fully support the move towards a low-carbon economy.

 

We work closely with our suppliers and clients to reduce emissions, paper, electronic waste and environmental hazards mainly through technological enhancements. We ensure our employees understand these principles so they can be informed on adopting green solutions in their work and personal life.

 

We are committed to minimizing the impact of our operations on the environment and to demonstrating leadership by integrating environmental considerations into all of our business practices.
 

Scope

The requirements of this policy apply to all offices and employees of Indigo Global Limited. The primary intention of this policy is for those responsible for its implementation, namely the business leaders and management of the company.

We want our products, services and production to be part of a sustainable economic society and want to ensure that the following commitments are met:

  • Protect the Environment - Ensuring we adopt responsible management of our operations to protect the environment and prevent pollution. This is achieved by designing our products and services to reduce adverse impact on the environment.

 

  • Compliance – We comply with our obligations under this policy and make decisions with reference to this policy to protect the environment.

 

  • Objectives – We set objectives within the scope of our environmental activities to achieve continual improvement and make adjustments when needed to ensure we are environmentally sustainable.

 

  • Operations – We minimize the environmental impacts of our own operations through selective use of energy, transportation, material, water and waste and this approach should also be adopted by our suppliers.

 

  • Purchasing – We consider the environmental performance of our supplier’s products and services when making purchasing decisions.

 

  • Audit – We adhere to our established environmental management of the policy through periodic internal audits.

 

  • Employees – We aim to raise employee awareness and support employee initiatives with respect to implementing our environmental policies and programs.
