We decided a long time ago that it’s not enough for us to produce quality, innovative technologies if our business is negatively harming the environment and society. We desire to take responsibility for the social and environmental impacts of our business, be a force for good and be accountable and transparent.
"We like to think we’re doing something valuable and operating with integrity, and that's meaningful to us" shared Arbortech Founder, Kevin Inkster. "We work hard to balance the impacts of doing business, such as using recycled materials where we can, supporting environmental initiatives, solar-powering our factory in Perth, Australia, and overhauling our packaging to be predominantly recyclable. We're constantly striving to do better."
And we're not alone in this mission.
One of our favourite social events of the year - our annual Staff Power Carving Competition where everyone gets to put their skills to work!
We said goodbye to plastic packaging and hello to these fancy (and sustainable) packaging in 2020.

There's a global movement for an inclusive, equitable and regenerative economy, along with an official certification that measures a company's entire social and environmental impact called B Corp. In case you're not familiar with it, B Corp certification is a thorough evaluation of a company's impact on its workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. It's a means for companies like ours to demonstrate our commitment to creating value not just for our clients, but also for our staff, suppliers, and all stakeholders.
We're thrilled to announce that we've successfully met these rigorous standards and are proud to be recognized as a B Corp. This certification means we've been recognised for the value we place on people, the planet, and the community, and it feels like an innate extension of what we have always strived to accomplish over the past 35 years. And, our mission is only just beginning.
Thank you for your continued support as we continue to build on our values and create unique, quality tools that have a positive impact on global communities far and wide.
