- Commitment to the local community
- Commitment to Australian businesses
At Complete Cafe Services, we have proudly implemented several green initiatives to reduce our environmental impact.
In 2019, we adopted a cloud-based system, reducing the amount of paper used in everyday processes by an estimated 70%. In addition to this, most paper used is shredded for compost. Migrations to cloud-based systems can reduce CO2 emissions by 59 million tonnes per annum. This equates to 22 million cars off the road!
Our workshop recycles all recyclable metals, assisting in the conservation of our natural resources being mined. This reduces greenhouse gasses, landfill and water pollution. Significant energy is also saves from recycling metal. Manufacturing from raw materials is more harmful for the environment and the economy.
Dispatch and Delivery
To reduce waste, our shipments are packed with boxes, from deliveries to us. By reusing boxes and packaging material, we have had to reduce the purchasing of newly manufactured cardboard products by 100%.
Environmentally friendly products
At Complete Cafe Services, we have proudly partnered with suppliers to deliver environmentally certified, sustainable, non-toxic and carbon neutral products.
BioPak’s Taiwan production facility is the third largest paper cup producer in the world outside the USA and pioneered the development of compostable cups and lids. The facility is certified to ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems – and uses electricity generated from renewable hydro power. Our BioCups are made from paper sourced from managed plantations and coated with Ingeo™ – a commercially compostable bioplastic made from plants, not oil. They use a heavy gauge, premium grade board to produce the highest quality cups. We only use soy, water-based inks. They are the only products of their kind certified commercially compostable to Australian standards (AS4736) in Australia and New Zealand. The Australian test includes a worm toxicity assessment that is unique to this side of the world.
We use bioplastic lids and like the cups and bowls they are the only lids in Australia and New Zealand that are certified commercially compostable to AS4736 Australian standards.
BioPak donate their time, energy and 7.5% of all profits to environmental restoration initiatives with Rainforest Rescue (Australia) and GreenFleet (New Zealand), and community programs. The planting of trees in particular is a powerful solution to produce oxygen, store carbon and therefore tackle climate change. Thanks to BioPak’s customers, they have planted over 20,000 trees and purchased over 5 hectares of threatened rainforest regionally.
