We take our responsibilities to the environment and the communities in which we operate very seriously. We believe that these responsibilities can impact positively on profitability, returns to shareholders, reputation and growth.
High standards of responsibility are, in our view, compatible with growth and business efficiency. We put particular emphasis on ensuring that our management of social, environmental and economic issues is aligned and integrated with the overall management of the business and we call this responsible business.
Our commitment to responsible business starts with The IMI Way. This embraces the way we act, look, behave, impact and continuously improve.
The IMI Way is a driver for responsible growth and directly supports our responsible business priorities:
- Health and safety
- Supporting our customers’ responsible business priorities
- Supply chain risk management
- Energy efficiency and carbon management
Health, safety and environment
Our activities which include manufacturing, warehousing, office work, onsite servicing, sales and product development, make health, safety and environmental responsibility critical issues to us. Two of our principle commitments are to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of all employees and minimise our impact on the local and wider environment. We will not compromise on these important matters.
Supply Chain Management
We are committed to eliminating slavery and human trafficking from our supply chains. In order to achieve this goal, we include as a part of our supplier selection process a requirement that our suppliers certify they comply with The IMI Way, our ethical code of conduct, and as such comply with all laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the countries in which they do business. In addition, our supply chain managers are trained to evaluate suppliers carefully to detect any non-compliance. In the event we discover any non-compliance by any supplier, we will not hesitate to cease doing business with that supplier.
