Big Footsteps for a Smaller Footprint
The environment and the world we live in are important to us. Ally is committed to reducing our environmental impact, which is an integral part of our business strategy and operating procedures..
Going Green at Work
We are on a journey to improve every day with our program “Going Green at Work”.
We seek to understand the effects our business activities have on the environment by supporting initiatives such as:
• Reduction of materials, water and energy consumption
• Reduction of carbon emissions and energy saving initiatives
• Waste minimization
• Recycling of all resources
Our Sustainability Efforts
Although sustainability efforts can be challenging, we try to take steps in the right direction. This includes:
Reducing, reusing and recycling - Sorting out plastic, glass, and cardboard/paper is now a common practice. We’ve set up recycling bins for our team members to properly dispose of plastic, glass, and cardboard/paper boxes to enhance our recycling initiatives. Shredding bins are also located at specific locations. We’re recycling all shipment boxes at our distribution centres daily.
Shopping Bags – 100% recyclable and reusable plastic and paper bags. We provide recyclable bags for customers. Our Ally Fashion bags are heavy-weight recycled fabric bags, which comply with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning legislation.
Going Paperless – We’re working towards fully eliminating paper, by going paperless where we can. We also ask customer if they require a printed receipt to reduce paper usage.
Efficient Power and Light Sources – We’ve installed energy efficient lighting systems at our new stores, and this has vastly cut down our energy usage. Our Head Office is powered using solar power installations.
