CIRCULAR ECONOMY: FROM PROBLEM TO RESOURCE

In 2018, we launched a project to identify how we can reduce organic landfill waste in our corporate offices and across our portfolio. Organic waste is a major contributor to climate change producing significantly more destructive gases than other forms of waste.

Our approach develops closed-loop systems, which we believe have the best chance of salvaging organic waste and transforming it from a problem to a valued resource. Our organics strategy is founded on two simple premises – behaviour change and systems thinking, including a range of measures to retain the integrity and value of the food waste, through to on-site and off-site processing, to avoid landfill.

SAYING NO TO LANDFILL BY 2021

ISPT has commenced a partnership with Beyond Ag, who are working to make the global food system more sustainable, to apply this process to our organic waste and in Victoria we are aiming to send zero organic waste to landfill by late 2021.

OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH SECONDBITE

For over a decade, ISPT has been a supporter of SecondBite, and we’ve donated over $1M to help them scale up their operations. Transitioning our partnership from purely philanthropic to operation has meant we can focus our organics strategy on food recovery and eliminating organics waste, while also helping to provide food security to those in need.
