Corporate Responsibility

Imperial takes its role as a corporate citizen very seriously.

Imperial Ranks in Top 35% of Evaluated Companies on Sustainability

Imperial ranks among the top 35% of companies in environmental and social governance, as assessed by EcoVadis. The global benchmarking firm compared Imperial’s performance with all rated companies in their database over the previous 12 months, calculated across all companies in all industries, not per industry.

Major categories of review included:

  • The Environment
  • Labor and Human Rights
  • Ethics
  • Sustainable Procurement

The EcoVadis score reflects the quality of a company’s sustainability management system at the time of the assessment. By awarding medals and badges, EcoVadis recognizes eligible companies that have successfully completed its assessment process.

Sustainable Sources

The paper we use is sourced from suppliers certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The FSC ensures that trees are harvested responsibly for zero deforestation, so there is no net loss of forests over time.

Reduced Electricity Consumption

As a manufacturer, our facilities are large power consumers. We actively reduce our energy use through ongoing programs, including:

  • The use of energy-efficient LED lighting, with motion sensors where applicable
  • Shutting down equipment that is not in use
  • Monitoring and adjusting thermostats for optimum efficiency
  • Closing off areas and environmental systems of facilities during seasonal periods of peak usage

Recycling Programs

Imperial recycles the paper, aluminum, and plastic we use. Through one of our equipment providers, Xerox, we recycle 500+ pounds of toner cartridges, from our large commercial printing presses, down to our desktop printers, every six weeks. (Learn more about this program.)

Giving Back to the Community

At Imperial, we believe it is important to give back to the communities that support us. Quarterly, we engage our team members with the community through structured charities and social groups. This includes serving meals at charitable meal centers, building homes with Habitat for Humanity, and making sack lunches for children in need. We support numerous causes and as part of our DNA, will continue to do so.

These activities produce positive effects today and will also impact the future. Our commitments make us more than a better corporate citizen—they make us a better company.
