Environmental protection is at the core of ISOTECH’s philosophy, and we strive towards the continuous reduction of our environmental footprint. ISOTECH’s Quality, Environment, Health and Safety Policy outlines the company’s continuing commitment to strive towards sustainability in all its operations. In fact, steady improvement is noticed year after year across the board. In 2017 (last year of available complete data), ISOTECH and its staff reduced their per capita energy consumption by 19.5% compared to the previous year (see graph below) and their per capita water consumption by 14.1%. As a result of overall waste reduction efforts, mainly through the separation  of recyclable waste at source, the composting of kitchen waste and the reduced use of disposable plastic items (e.g. plastic bags and take-out containers), reductions in per capita production of all  types of waste (organic, recyclable and residual) have been observed (see graph below). Finally, as a result of ongoing efforts to become a paperless office, ISOTECH and its staff have reduced the overall costs associated with the purchase of stationary (paper, toner and cartridges) by 49% .

Recognising the importance of providing our customers and collaborators with verifiable means of our environmental commitment, we have undertaken the implementation of two independently certified Environmental Management Systems: ISO 14001:2015 and Green Office.
