Protecting IT and the Planet

Environmental Policy

As a reseller and not a manufacturer, SHI has a low impact on the environment. We are mindful to the environment and try to reduce any damaging effects from our organization, while protecting the safety and wellbeing of our staff.

Our environmental initiatives focus on four areas:

  • Energy use (office and equipment)
  • Business travel
  • Waste management
  • Asset redeployment, recycling or proper disposal

We exercise due diligence to:

  • Adhere to local and international environmental legislation
  • Increase employee awareness
  • Adopt best practices
  • Monitor usage

SHI’s goal is to consume less energy and reduce our environmental impact. We take action through:

  • Monitoring power consumption
  • Establishing a goal of 100% for recycling paper, plastics, glass and cardboard
  • Utilizing advanced energy-saving systems such as automatic lights and energy-saving computer monitors
  • Use of materials from renewable resources, non-toxic materials and recyclable items

SHI has reduced our travel-related environmental impact by promoting:

  • Teleconferencing and other collaborative working tools to limit the number of individual business trips
  • A Work-from-Home policy, when possible
  • Flexible working hours
  • Use of public transportation

SHI encourages individual responsibility and supports recycling initiatives in the following ways:

  • Monitoring the purchase of cut sheet paper
  • Striving to reduce paper consumption by 1% per year
  • Providing recycling facilities for paper, printer toners, etc.
  • Supporting double-sided printing and photocopying
  • Using proper disposal or recycling of IT and electronic equipment in accordance with local regulations
  • Donating IT assets to those who would not otherwise have access

Our goal to reduce Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions is a 1% reduction per year, since our power consumption goal and Scope 2 greenhouse gas goal are directly linked together.
