Carbon Reduction Plan

Iskus Health* is committed to achieving
Net Zero Emissions by 2045.

*Incorporating Iskus Health UK Ltd & Iskus Health Ltd.

We are aware that reducing our emissions represents significant benefits for ourselves, our customers, our suppliers and the wider community / World.

As a largely sales and administration-based business, with many aspects of the business outsourced to third-party providers, for example, our offices, warehousing, goods inwards, picking, packing and delivery to customers are all outsourced. We will be working with all our employees and service providers to embrace this plan and work collaboratively to achieve our Sustainability goals to achieve our Net Zero Emissions by 2045 and hopefully earlier.

Iskus Health recognises the importance of applying the principles of best practice in operating a responsible and sustainable business. We understand that our work has an impact on the environment, our employees, the communities in which we operate and all our partners. As a business we are committed to minimising our impact on the environment and reducing our Carbon Footprint to help achieve a NET Zero ambitions inline with government initiatives.

Environment

Our aim is to always work with suppliers who have robust environmental procedures and economical supply routes through our supply chain.

We request suppliers to use biodegradable materials and recyclable packaging and where possible to manage the minimisation of product packaging without compromising the clinical integrity of the products /devices.

We utilise established nationwide carriers, to reduce unnecessary fleet travel and to reduce carbon emissions when delivering product instead of using a company owned carrier.

We are ISO 14001 certified, and our Environmental Policy outlines our commitment to the protection of the environment as well as prevention of pollution and other specific commitments relevant to the context of the organisation. (A copy of this policy can be provided upon a request.).

We purchase inventory in volumes that reduce the number of inward deliveries in-line with our Environmental objectives.

We work closely with our major service provider Uniphar, who understand that their activities can have a lasting impact and believe in protecting our environment for the benefit of future generations. Uniphar are committed to achieving our Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Responsible Consumption and Climate Action.

Community

As part of our commitment to the community, Iskus Health actively encourages employees to support their local communities through fundraising.

This activity is led by the organisation, but on many occasions, it is our employees who instigate projects and initiatives around something that they feel passionately about.

Within the promotion of social and economic advancement we support and respects human rights, uphold the freedom of association and the right to representation and are committed to never use, be complicit or benefit from forced or child labour.

Iskus Health follows a path of continuous improvement, which is supported through internal monitoring and audits. This allows for the detection and prevention of regulatory and compliance concerns and is designed to limit any impact on the Community, People, and the Environment.

Looking to the future

As detailed above we acknowledge that some of our activities have an impact on the environment, primarily due to packaging, water, energy and CO2 emissions; we are seeking to minimise this impact as far as reasonably possible year on year.
