Sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability

VALO believes in a zero-emission future and is pursuing carbon neutrality in all aspects of company operations. Where possible, we will always seek out sustainable, dynamic and local products and services in all areas of our business.

Local manufacturer of LED lighting

Made from recyclable materials, LED’s use up to 80% less energy, emit 90% less CO2 emissions and last 25 times longer than any other lighting – reducing energy costs, increasing efficiency, and reducing landfill, thus contributing to a financially and environmentally sustainable future (source: australia.gov.au).

100% solar run HQ and manufacturing facility

Our HQ and manufacturing facility run off 100% solar energy, reducing our carbon footprint and dependence on non-renewable energy sources. This is achieved with own solar and purchasing green power when required.

Bottle recycling with 100% of proceeds given to Scouts Recycling

Along with recycling waste, we recycle all our bottles and give 100% of the proceeds back to the Scouts Recycling Centre.

Tesla fleet

Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better – and so do we. We are slowly transitioning all VALO staff into our growing Tesla Model 3 fleet. These are powered by our solar.

Use of carbon miles when travelling

When flying, we will always choose to offset the flight by selecting the ‘fly carbon neutral’ option. Meaning we are offsetting carbon emissions from our flights by contributing to a project that protects the environment.
