IHS Global Alliance is committed to contributing to a clean and safe environment:
We have changed our ways.
In the past, we used native timbers. They were easier, more affordable, and more available.
Today, IHS is directly responsible for saving several thousand acres of rain forest simply by switching to MDF. MDF is made of young forest thinnings and sawmill off-cuts that are normally of very limited value.
Continuing our focus on wood, our pallets are now produced from hybrid pine which can be replenished in half the time of non-hybrid pine. All offcuts are converted to mulch and sawdust and sold for re-use.
In a bid to reduce and prevent harmful effects on nature, IHS has made a positive impact on water and energy consumption, recycling, landfill waste, and overall lifecycle improvement.
