Sustainability

Footprint

Everywhere in the world, you can see the consequences of environmental changes - climate change, rising temperatures, water shortages, to mention but a few. Intercel is aware of these trends and closely tracks developments in clean and sustainable energy. Growing and reducing our carbon footprint at the same time is a challenge that is grist to Intercel's mill. It goes without saying that Intercel separates all its waste and strives for a paperless office. All our suppliers are asked to reduce their packaging to an absolute minimum. Batteries used to be transported in containers with methyl bromide. Ten years ago this practice was prohibited and since then the transport process is significantly more environmentally friendly with clean packaging material, a cleaner environment and heat-treated wooden pallets. The latter means that containers are no longer filled with dunnage, but with airbags.

Despite the fact that batteries contain large amounts of lead, their use is not harmful to the environment because batteries are 98% recyclable. We help our clients by disposing of batteries in a certified recycling centre.



CSR

Intercel realises that we are at a turning point in history. In order to protect life on our planet, it is imperative we change the way we do business. The world needs a new business model that is centred on sustainable growth. Every Intercel investment is scrutinised on economic aspects, but sustainable aspects also play an important role in the eventual choice.
