'The time is always right, to do what is right…'

IHS Global Alliance is committed to contributing to a clean and safe environment:

  • our stainless steel is 100% recyclable
  • our medium density fibre board (MDF) is certified by the Good Environmental Choice Association and is produced from fast growing pine woodlands which are regularly replenished
  • our packaging is 100% recyclable
  • our package removal program is critical to our commitment of thriving in a low carbon economy.

We have changed our ways.

In the past, we used native timbers. They were easier, more affordable, and more available.

Today, IHS is directly responsible for saving several thousand acres of rain forest simply by switching to MDF. MDF is made of young forest thinnings and sawmill off-cuts that are normally of very limited value.

Continuing our focus on wood, our pallets are now produced from hybrid pine which can be replenished in half the time of non-hybrid pine. All offcuts are converted to mulch and sawdust and sold for re-use.

In a bid to reduce and prevent harmful effects on nature, IHS has made a positive impact on water and energy consumption, recycling, landfill waste, and overall lifecycle improvement.
