In today’s world, the importance of sustainability cannot be overstated. At Elitez Group, we understand that our actions as a company have a direct impact on the environment, and we are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting ethical practices across all our operations. Recently, our company proudly received the prestigious EcoVadis Silver Award, recognizing our commitment to sustainable practices. In line with our sustainability initiatives, we have also adopted NFC (Near Field Communication) name cards, further showcasing our dedication to environmental responsibility and innovation.

The EcoVadis Silver Award: A Testament to Sustainable Excellence

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded an EcoVadis Silver Award for our sustainability efforts, placing us in the top 25% of companies assessed by EcoVadis. This recognition reflects our dedication to sustainability and demonstrates that our initiatives have successfully created a more eco-friendly business model.

EcoVadis is a leading sustainability rating platform that assesses companies based on their environmental, social, and ethical practices. Their rating system provides a comprehensive evaluation of a company’s sustainability efforts, covering areas such as environmental impact, labor and human rights practices, fair business practices, and sustainable procurement. Their ratings are widely recognized as a trusted and objective measure of a company’s sustainability performance.

Our commitment to sustainable operations is evident through our efforts to reduce energy consumption, minimize waste generation, and optimize resource utilization. By embracing innovative technologies and implementing sustainable practices, we actively contribute to mitigating climate change and preserving natural resources. We firmly believe that sustainable operations not only benefit the environment but also lead to long-term business success.

Our Sustainability Journey: From Awareness to Action

Elitez Group embarked on its sustainability journey with a profound realization of the crucial role it plays in environmental responsibility. Recognizing the impact businesses have on the environment, we understood the need for a paradigm shift towards more sustainable practices. We conducted a comprehensive carbon footprint assessment by Catalyst to identify areas for improvement. Initiatives such as conducting Electric Vehicle training classes and urban farming have been implemented to reduce our carbon footprint, conserve resources, and promote environmental stewardship.

NFC Namecards: Innovation for a Greener Future

Our journey toward sustainability has been marked by continuous learning, adaptation, and a resolute dedication to creating a positive impact on the environment and the communities we serve. We have recently started utilizing a new type of name card featuring sustainable materials while using Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

NFC technology is revolutionizing the way businesses operate, and it plays a pivotal role in our company’s sustainability efforts. Enabling seamless communication between devices in close proximity, making it ideal for applications such as contactless payments, access control, and in our case, NFC name cards. By replacing traditional paper-based name cards with NFC-enabled ones, we significantly reduce paper waste, contributing to our sustainability goals.

Moreover, NFC name cards offer enhanced convenience, eliminating the need for physical cards and streamlining networking and information-sharing processes. Furthermore, these smart name cards can provide real-time updates, ensuring that the information shared remains accurate and up-to-date. 

A company our size consumes 32 metres of forest, emits 730kg of carbon into the atmosphere and depletes 8446 litres of clean water annually just by giving out name cards. By printing our own NFC name cards and moving towards 100% usage of them, we aim to significantly reduce our carbon footprint. We have already started promoting the use of these name cards and even customized them as door gifts for events. Embracing NFC technology through namecards exemplifies our commitment to sustainability, efficiency, and embracing innovative solutions for a greener and more connected future.

“The beauty of sustainability is that it’s not a zero-sum game; what’s good for the planet is also good for business, people, and society as a whole” – Derrick Teo, CEO of Elitez Group

Looking Ahead: Sustaining the Momentum

As we move forward with our commitment to further enhance our sustainability efforts within the company, we have also partnered with The Matcha Initiative to organize a Sustainability Masterclass Series for organizations and individuals. This program will feature industry experts who will share their knowledge and expertise on sustainability best practices and insights. (More information here). 

Receiving the EcoVadis Silver Award and adopting NFC name cards are significant milestones in our journey toward sustainable excellence. As a Human Resource company, we are committed to leading by example and demonstrating how sustainability and innovation can go hand in hand. We invite others to join us on this journey toward a more sustainable and responsible business landscape.
