At Australian Vending Company Pty Ltd, we are committed to outstanding environmental sustainability performance. Our goal is to make a positive impact on the environment by embedding the principles of sustainability in all aspects of our business operations.
We prioritize purchasing environmentally and socially responsible products for both internal use and in the items sold through our vending machines and micro markets. When choosing between similar products, we opt for the sustainable alternative whenever possible.
To minimize our environmental footprint, we encourage locally-based employees from nearby suburbs to reduce their daily commute impact. We train our drivers to adopt fuel-efficient driving techniques, which can lead to substantial reductions in fuel consumption and emissions. We continuously seek to optimize routes and network planning to minimize distance traveled per machine or micro market stocked.
Our focus is on waste prevention and continuous improvement of waste management processes. We manage various waste streams, including organic waste, cardboard, plastic, and paper.
To reduce our energy demand and carbon emissions, we prioritize energy-efficient solutions, such as using electric forklifts and exploring options for a more energy-efficient warehouse and head office.
We take practical measures to reduce water consumption, including the use of water-efficient fixtures, encouraging reusable water bottles, and adhering to water-saving rules.
During company events, we take proactive steps to limit consumption and waste by using fair-trade tea and coffee, avoiding disposable crockery and cutlery, serving tap water instead of bottled water, and recycling all recyclable packaging.
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, we have a 3-year strategy to improve our environmental performance. By working together and making conscious choices, we aim to create a greener and more sustainable future for our organization and the communities we serve.
