With the known impacts of climate change and greater visibility of environmental considerations across the supply chain, taking action on environmental issues is critical.

Measurement

In 2021, we made significant progress in our approach to understanding our impact on the environment, through the implementation of an environmental management system to measure 'Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions.'

Commitment

Iress has committed to set near-term company-wide emission reductions in line with climate science with the Science Based Targets initiative.


Science-based targets

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns that global warming must not exceed 1.5 degrees celsius (above pre-industrial temperatures) to avoid the most catastrophic impacts to the environment. Businesses have a vital role to play in driving down greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and building a resilient, zero-emissions economy grounded in science.

Science-based targets show companies the actual reductions in GHG required to meet their own targets, they prevent the worst impact of climate change, and provide a path towards decarbonisation.

E-waste

LiteHaus International's Digital Infrastructure Program has provided a digital touchpoint to over 40,000 students, teachers, and community members in Papua New Guinea. In addition, their Digital Inclusion Program has provided a personal digital device to 850 high school students across rural, regional, and remote Australia.

Iress is supporting digital inclusion to address inequalities in regional communities.

Through LiteHaus International's Digital Infrastructure Program, in 2021 Iress donated desktops, monitors, laptops, screens and TVs to the program, amounting to over 300 items.

“A quality education can only be a digital education in today’s world and the equipment donated by Iress will help us ensure that this is a reality for hundreds of future leaders”.
