Our ESG Strategy

At IVE, we stand for a future that’s sustainable. As an ASX-listed business with 2,000 employees and a network of 2,800 customers across Australia, we know we have a responsibility to our people, customers, investors, wider stakeholders and the planet.

That’s why we are proud to launch our 2025 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, grounded in our strong commitment to achieving better outcomes for society.

For a brighter future

As a global community, we face increasingly complex challenges – from navigating the impacts of climate change to reducing how we consume resources, to delivering a more equitable and inclusive society.

At IVE, we recognise the critical role of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in our long-term success in mitigating climate and social risks, recognising our responsibilities to operate in alignment with stakeholders’ expectations and enabling sustainable growth for generations to come.

Our approach

Drawing on more than 100 years of adapting to change and acting responsibly, our ESG strategy embeds sustainability throughout our business and decision-making processes so that we can continue to create meaningful impact.

From commissioning Life Cycle Assessments that compare the environmental impact of products and services, to prioritising paper as a material of focus, we are committed to delivering shared value for our customers, people, community, and supply chain.

In addition, our commitment to transparency means we will continue to ensure GRI-aligned reporting, including full alignment to the Taskforce for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures.
