Striving to 'Do Better'

We are acutely aware of the impact we all have on our planet. In everything we do, we aim to nurture, nourish and develop a community that works to create positive outputs for themselves, their businesses and our planet.

We constantly strive to ‘do better’ across our consumption of Energy, Transport and Food and we have taken the following steps, so far…

We’d love to learn about your inititatives.

1% for the Planet

ICC is proud to be a 1% for the Planet Business Member. 1% for the Planet is a global organisation that exists to ensure our planet and future generations thrive. They inspire businesses and individuals to support environmental non-profits through membership and everyday actions. They make environmental giving easy and effective through partnership advising, impact storytelling and third-party certification.

Founded in 2002 by Yvon Chouinard (founder of Patagonia) and Craig Mathews, 1% for the Planet business and individual members have, to date, awarded hundreds of millions of dollars to the approved non-profit partners. Today, 1% for the Planet’s global network consists of thousands of businesses, individuals and environmental non-profits working towards a better future for all.

As a Business Member, ICC donates 1% of our annual sales to approved environmental non-profits.

The Gold Standard

The Gold Standard literally sets the standard for climate and development interventions by helping to quantify, certify and maximise their impact. With our commitment to ‘do better’ across ICC consumption of Energy, Transport and Food, we measure our climate impact via the Standard’s GHG Emissions Protocol and strive to reduce our emissions via energy efficient business operations and plant-based nutrition.

In addition, while not fully agreeing with many available approaches to carbon offsetting, ICC’s transport policy must ‘do better’. We believe that travel must be coupled with Purpose – we don’t support travel for travel’s sake. Any ICC travel must demonstrate obvious community, cultural and environmental benefits beyond obvious commercial objectives and we enjoy sharing these. We also make use of The Gold Standard carbon credits measurements and take climate action via their immediate impact projects.

Nurturing the ICC Community

Through our performance partnerships, we have developed a substantial community of individuals, organisations and industries, all who thrive in high-performance environments. We have learned from this high-performance community that, although the marker of success might look different to many, the common denominators are often the same.

By working with ICC, our clients automatically gain access to this community and the ICC Partnership Events.

Come and join us!
