Environmental Policy

 

We see responsible environmental management as an important part of achieving our key goal of growing the value of our business.

We strive to achieve best practice in all our activities and will seek to minimise any adverse environmental effects through our commitment to continuous improvement and setting, maintaining and reviewing an environmental policy.

We aim to minimise and reduce our impact on the environment while at the same time minimising costs of materials and packaging used.

With our environmental policy, we aim to:

  • Operate our business in accordance with environmental laws and guidelines.
  • Maintain systems to assist the management of our environmental responsibilities, including continual updating and reviewing of our policies, practices and procedures to match new legislation, technology and business requirements.
  • Set clear targets for continuous improvement and monitor these targets for achievement.
  • Prevent pollution, waste and where possible, commit to recovery, recycling and managing energy.
  • Work with our supply chain to improve our combined environmental performance, through more efficient use of resources and minimising the impacts from packaging and transportation, ensuring that our suppliers meet the same standards Force has set for itself.
  • Implement ongoing training for all employees to adopt sound environmental work practices.

About Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neutral is a not-for-profit organisation which was formed by Men of the Trees Inc. and partners with Trees for Life.  Carbon Neutral was formed in 2001 as a way to help community and industry take responsibility for the effects of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment.  As part of this program Carbon Neutral have planted over 1.5 million trees in some of the most environmentally vulnerable areas of Australia. The program offers government departments, private corporations and individuals the opportunity to offset the carbon dioxide produced by their daily activities.

How does Force support Carbon Neutral?

With every Force product purchased, Force will contribute to the Carbon Neutral program.  The contribution will go towards planting trees, which will help to neutralise carbon emissions.

Since the commencement of our participation in the Carbon Neutral Plant-a-Tree Programme, we’ve contributed funds that has resulted in over 20,000 trees being planted to offset carbon emissions, and we are now recognised as a Gold Supporter of Carbon Neutral.
