As a responsible business, we have an obligation to preserve and protect the environment and to give back and support the communities in which we operate. We donate our time, energy and 7.5% of all profits to environmental restoration initiatives and community programs that contribute to the welfare of less fortunate individuals, and help accelerate the transition to a circular economy by promoting sustainability, economic development and self-sufficiency.
Thanks to our customers we have planted 5,000 trees and purchased three hectares of threatened Daintree rainforest in North Queensland since 2011. All BioPak products are certified carbon neutral. The carbon emissions associated with the production, transport and disposal of our products are measured by the Carbon Reduction Institute and offset through the purchase of carbon credits.
We are inspired by the community work of so many of our hospitality customers, particularly those working with the homeless and disadvantaged. We are a key partner to STREAT who ‘stop homelessness the delicious way’ by training young homeless people to find their feet through employment in the hospitality industry. We support a number of other projects, from Rosies ‘Cuppa’ program to Yahava Coffee’s ongoing involvement with Black Dog Ride. A percentage of sales of our Indigenous BioCups go directly to CorporateConnect.AB to support Indigenous communities by developing practical, innovative and sustainable solutions for employment and economic advancement. We also produce a BioCup Art Series to promote artists whose work raises awareness and reconnects consumers with the environment.
