E Co. is committed to undertake steps and to be an environmental leader. As a company, we adhere to the following green principles:

  • To focus our core business on facilitating a positive environmental impact.  
  • To minimise our consumption of resources and the impacts of our waste.
  • To foster a company culture that is continuously committed to increasing its environmental effectiveness. 
  • To consider the global environmental impact of our operations and to endeavour to influence our suppliers, customers and other stakeholders towards increased ambition for environmental action.
  • To continuously educate, train and learn from our employees and associates as to how our work and our ways of working can better support the planet. 

In order to operationalise our principals, E Co. has committed to the following goals:
