Sustainability

Looking after our planet has never been more important and we believe that all businesses have a duty of care to do as much as they possibly can to minimise their impact on the environment.

ACS Group are committed to working closely with our supply chain to ensure sustainability is at the core of everything we do. This includes listening to customers, public bodies, and our suppliers to ensure we are always leading the way for sustainability within our industry.

EVERY DIVISION PLAYS A PART

We are realistic in our approach to sustainability and know that every business has different ways in which they can support the environment. That’s why we actively seek out every opportunity to act in a sustainable way throughout all our divisions, whether that’s using vegetable-based inks in our print, eliminating the use of void-fill in our packaging or sourcing eco-friendly office product alternatives for our customers.

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

PAS 2060 STANDARD

The BSi is an internationally recognised accreditation and we are currently working closely with the BSi to achieve the PAS 2060 standard and will have obtained this by the beginning of next year.

The standard will officially recognise our organisation’s climate efforts and clearly indicate, with evidence, the aspects of our activities that are proven to be carbon neutral. It is a display of our corporate social responsibility and a clear, verified proof of our fight against climate change. It specifies the requirements we must meet to demonstrate carbon neutrality through the quantification, reduction, and offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions.

HIGH STANDARDS

We comply with the minimum ethical sourcing standards and to ensure ethical trading across our supply chain, we check and assess the profile of every new supplier. We only appoint suppliers and manufacturers who are certified to an equivalent standard to guarantee consistency of quality. We ensure their quality procedures are compatible with ours and the agreements we have with our customers.
