Sustainable Business Practices
Environmental Stewardship is a core operating standard for Iris Waste Diversion Specialists employees, whether at the home office or a satellite office, efforts to reduce, reuse or recycle products is an expected practice of all employees
Utilizing remanufactured office products and/or furniture is important to Iris office sustainability. Iris purchases products from reuse retailers, thrift shops and similar organizations when necessary.
When printing materials for customers, presentations, trainings etc., Iris prints on office paper made with at least 30% post-consumer recycled content and identifies this on all publications. When utilizing an outside source for printing needs Iris uses printers that use recycled paper. To reduce the need to purchase; two-sided printing is utilized as well as, re-using paper that has printing on only one side.
Iris employs technology as much as possible for storing, requesting and creating or sending documents via technological resources.
Iris goes to great lengths to be sure products that are no longer useful are reused or recycled. Materials that are not taken within the immediate area for reuse or recycling are held until the item(s) can be taken to locations where proper management is available.
The passionate staff of Iris actively promotes and lives as waste-free as possible while making a conscious effort to serve as an environmentally responsible model for our clients and others. Not only do Iris employees realize their personal impact on the environment they actively volunteer in programs that promote waste reduction activities as well.
