Our Sustainability Ambitions
At IBIS, we are driven by a deep commitment to sustainability and a desire to make a positive impact on the world. We lead by example, that’s why we strive to integrate sustainability into everything we do, from our own operations to the products and services we offer to our clients. We are ambitious in our sustainability goals and believe that by taking a holistic and inclusive approach to sustainability, we can create real and lasting change for the better.
We are committed to upholding the principles of responsible investment and sustainability in line with UNPRI. Our strategy is also underpinned by the UN Global Compact as well as the Sustainable Development Goals with a particular focus on environmental stewardship, empowerment and transformation and workplace well-being.
IBIS recognises that the interconnected nature of our work gives us the opportunity to address climate change in an impactful way. In our bid to become a more sustainable organisation, we partner with clients to drive climate and environmental impact, and have also implemented a programme to reduce our own carbon footprint.
EMPOWERMENT AND TRANSFORMATION
We understand our critical role in facilitating economic growth and societal transformation to create a sustainable future for communities in the countries in which we operate. This extends to recruiting, retaining and developing talent. To support this goal and to promote continuous learning and development, we have a number of initiatives in place including; internal training programs and workshops, external education and certifications, mentorship and networking opportunities, regular performance evaluations and career development plans, and an extensive bursary program. We believe that investing in our employees is an investment in our company’s future.
IBIS seeks to create a collaborative and transparent culture of respect and dignity. A force for good in society, we aim to instil the same values within our organisation to ensure its continued success.
This starts with cultivating a safe space for care, growth and both physical and mental well-being. Firm believers in the African proverb that ‘to go far, you have to go together’, IBIS realises the importance of family, fun and motivation when it comes to striking a healthy balance.
