At Spartan we are focused on growing our business responsibly. We care about the sustainability of the environment we live in, the customers we serve, the community we live in and for the social impact we create. Being a good corporate citizen is one of our core business values and we exhibit this in many ways.

 

 

Ethical Sourcing
We have always worked closely with our suppliers to ensure we ethically source our products. More recently we have developed and published  our own Ethical Sourcing Policy. CLICK HERE to view.

Carbon Offsets
We offset our entire company car fleet with Greenfleet - www.greenfleet.com.au. So far, this has resulted in the planting of over 1720 trees since 2016 and will be an ongoing program.

Packaging
For many years we have worked to eliminate or reduce our packaging and use biodegradable packaging wherever possible. In 2015 we were proud to become a signatory to the Australian Packaging Covenant, one of only 1400 companies nationwide to hold this status.
Spartan signing up to the covenant signifies our commitment to further reduce the environmental impacts of packaging by:
-  designing packaging that is more resource efficient and more recyclable
-  increasing the recovery and recycling of used packaging from households
and away-from-home sources and
-  taking action to reduce the incidence and impacts of litter
