Sustainability

IFS embraces an all-inclusive, sustainable development philosophy. We have developed a framework that covers processes which meet the business as well as social objectives whilst maintaining the ability of natural systems to continue to provide the natural resources and ecosystem upon which the economy and society depend.
There is a sustained focus to create awareness on our present generations’ responsibility to regenerate, maintain and improve planetary resources for use by future generations. To this end IFS has created focus groups such as the CSR Committee and the Green Team to develop and implement social and environmentally friendly initiatives.

Some of the initiatives that the Green Team has embarked with respect to environmentally friendly initiatives are:

  • Renewable Energy – More than 10% of our electricity is generated from solar panels
  • Green Environment – More than 20% of our land coverage is green. Many of the plants are endemic and rare.
  • Paperless office – We adopt a strict minimal printing policy supported by:
    • Use of electronic documents for Board meetings and Forms
    • Use of laptops in meetings to record notes
    • Online review of documents
    • Double-sided printing
    • Secured print – printing upon collection at the printer
  • Use of recycled paper. Most of our marketing collaterals are on recycled paper:
    • Brochure
    • Business cards
  • ICT Energy Savings initiatives
    • Acquire energy saving laptops and PCs
    • Automatic locking of PCs after a defined period of idle time
    • Automatic switching off of monitors after 15 mins of idle time
    • ICT awareness  - ‘green’ tips
