What do you like most about working for the IMG Group, and how would you describe the company culture?

When considering what I like most about working for the IMG Group, it's the company's profound commitment to regeneration that stands out prominently. The organisation's dedication to creating a positive impact on the environment and society aligns closely with my personal values.  

Moreover, the openness to new ideas within the IMG Group fosters an environment of innovation and continuous improvement. This aspect allows for creativity to thrive, encourages employees to bring forth fresh perspectives, and promotes a culture where innovative solutions are valued and implemented. Being able to contribute ideas and witness them being embraced and coming true, is incredibly motivating and fulfilling. 

The international environment at the IMG Group is another aspect that greatly appeals to me. Collaborating with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures not only broadens my perspective but also enhances creativity and problem-solving. Overall, the commitment to regeneration, openness to new ideas, and the international work environment at the IMG Group are facets that resonate deeply with me and make it a rewarding and fulfilling place to work.

From a sustainability perspective, how have you seen the IMG Group evolve?

The evolution of the IMG Group from a sustainability perspective has been notable, particularly in our transition towards embracing regenerative principles and ethical guidelines in our relationships with stakeholders. Over time, the company has demonstrated a profound commitment to sustainability, evolving our sustainability framework to align with changing environmental and social needs.

What steps are you personally taking to live more sustainably?

Living sustainably involves a combination of conscious choices and actions. Personally, I've adopted several practices to reduce my environmental footprint and contribute positively to sustainability: 

I prioritise eco-friendly transportation by using my bicycle whenever possible and opting for trains over airplanes for travel. This significantly reduces carbon emissions and supports more sustainable modes of transit. 

I actively practice waste segregation and recycling at home. Minimising single-use plastics, composting organic waste, and ensuring proper disposal of recyclables are integral parts of my routine to reduce landfill waste. 

I've made a deliberate choice to switch to an energy provider that exclusively offers renewable energy sources, encouraging the growth of sustainable energy production.

What is one thing you want people to know about our industry?

The PET industry has huge potential to become more and more sustainable through innovative practices and technological advancements. New recycling technologies, and a shift toward circular economy models, showcase the industry's capability to minimise environmental impact.

Innovation in PET production, such as utilising renewable resources for feedstock and creating bioplastics, paves the way for reduced reliance on fossil fuels and a decreased carbon footprint. Our industry has the capacity to keep transitioning into a sustainable one, reducing our ecological footprint, whilst fostering economic growth – let’s continue pushing to unlock it.

How do you think the IMG Group can improve, and what steps do you believe they can take to further the regenerative approach?

Partnering with diverse entities, including other companies and stakeholders, is crucial for the IMG Group to advance our regenerative approach and contribute to a circular economy. Collaborative efforts allow for shared resources, expertise, and a broader impact in implementing regenerative practices. 

This collaboration could involve joint initiatives with suppliers, local communities, NGOs, and even competitors to create a more comprehensive and impactful approach to regeneration. Encouraging innovation within the organisation and fostering a culture that values and supports new ideas is paramount.

As Sustainability Manager of the Group, what are the most notable initiatives that you have taken part in, and how did they align with the Group’s mission?

My role involves championing initiatives that align with our commitment to sustainability. One of the most notable initiatives I've been involved in is the introduction of sustainable supply chain management practices. Collaborating closely with our procurement team, we've emphasised the importance of ethical and sustainable sourcing among our suppliers, focusing on transparency, fair labour practices, and reducing our carbon footprint. While progress has been made, there's ongoing work to expand these practices throughout our supply chain network. 

Another initiative was the publication of our sustainability reports, since 2020, aiming to transparently communicate our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. These reports highlight our achievements, challenges, and future sustainability goals, reinforcing our dedication to accountability and transparency, in line with the Group's mission. 

Furthermore, as a connector between various internal stakeholders, I've facilitated collaboration across departments to ensure that sustainability remains integrated in our business strategies.

What would you like to see the IMG Group achieve within the upcoming years?

I see the IMG Group becoming a global leader in promoting regeneration and sustainability across industries. Specifically, I aspire for our company to emerge as a beacon of positive impact, not just within our operations but also in our influence on the broader environment, society, and industry practices.

I aim for the IMG Group to set a benchmark as a B Corp company, showcasing our commitment to ethical, social, and environmental standards.  I envision us as a reference point in the B Corp movement, inspiring and influencing other organisations to prioritize sustainability, transparency, and a purpose-driven approach.

Over time, the company has demonstrated a profound commitment to sustainability, evolving our sustainability framework to align with changing environmental and social needs.

What steps are you personally taking to live more sustainably?

Living sustainably involves a combination of conscious choices and actions. Personally, I've adopted several practices to reduce my environmental footprint and contribute positively to sustainability: 

I prioritise eco-friendly transportation by using my bicycle whenever possible and opting for trains over airplanes for travel. This significantly reduces carbon emissions and supports more sustainable modes of transit. 

I actively practice waste segregation and recycling at home. Minimising single-use plastics, composting organic waste, and ensuring proper disposal of recyclables are integral parts of my routine to reduce landfill waste. 

I've made a deliberate choice to switch to an energy provider that exclusively offers renewable energy sources, encouraging the growth of sustainable energy production.

What is one thing you want people to know about our industry?

The PET industry has huge potential to become more and more sustainable through innovative practices and technological advancements. New recycling technologies, and a shift toward circular economy models, showcase the industry's capability to minimise environmental impact.

Innovation in PET production, such as utilising renewable resources for feedstock and creating bioplastics, paves the way for reduced reliance on fossil fuels and a decreased carbon footprint. Our industry has the capacity to keep transitioning into a sustainable one, reducing our ecological footprint, whilst fostering economic growth – let’s continue pushing to unlock it.

How do you think the IMG Group can improve, and what steps do you believe they can take to further the regenerative approach?

Partnering with diverse entities, including other companies and stakeholders, is crucial for the IMG Group to advance our regenerative approach and contribute to a circular economy. Collaborative efforts allow for shared resources, expertise, and a broader impact in implementing regenerative practices. 

This collaboration could involve joint initiatives with suppliers, local communities, NGOs, and even competitors to create a more comprehensive and impactful approach to regeneration. Encouraging innovation within the organisation and fostering a culture that values and supports new ideas is paramount.

As Sustainability Manager of the Group, what are the most notable initiatives that you have taken part in, and how did they align with the Group’s mission?

My role involves championing initiatives that align with our commitment to sustainability. One of the most notable initiatives I've been involved in is the introduction of sustainable supply chain management practices. Collaborating closely with our procurement team, we've emphasised the importance of ethical and sustainable sourcing among our suppliers, focusing on transparency, fair labour practices, and reducing our carbon footprint. While progress has been made, there's ongoing work to expand these practices throughout our supply chain network. 

Another initiative was the publication of our sustainability reports, since 2020, aiming to transparently communicate our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. These reports highlight our achievements, challenges, and future sustainability goals, reinforcing our dedication to accountability and transparency, in line with the Group's mission. 

Furthermore, as a connector between various internal stakeholders, I've facilitated collaboration across departments to ensure that sustainability remains integrated in our business strategies.

What would you like to see the IMG Group achieve within the upcoming years?

I see the IMG Group becoming a global leader in promoting regeneration and sustainability across industries. Specifically, I aspire for our company to emerge as a beacon of positive impact, not just within our operations but also in our influence on the broader environment, society, and industry practices.

I aim for the IMG Group to set a benchmark as a B Corp company, showcasing our commitment to ethical, social, and environmental standards.  I envision us as a reference point in the B Corp movement, inspiring and influencing other organisations to prioritize sustainability, transparency, and a purpose-driven approach.

How do you think the IMG Group can improve, and what steps do you believe they can take to further the regenerative approach?

Partnering with diverse entities, including other companies and stakeholders, is crucial for the IMG Group to advance our regenerative approach and contribute to a circular economy. Collaborative efforts allow for shared resources, expertise, and a broader impact in implementing regenerative practices. 

This collaboration could involve joint initiatives with suppliers, local communities, NGOs, and even competitors to create a more comprehensive and impactful approach to regeneration. Encouraging innovation within the organisation and fostering a culture that values and supports new ideas is paramount.

As Sustainability Manager of the Group, what are the most notable initiatives that you have taken part in, and how did they align with the Group’s mission?

My role involves championing initiatives that align with our commitment to sustainability. One of the most notable initiatives I've been involved in is the introduction of sustainable supply chain management practices. Collaborating closely with our procurement team, we've emphasised the importance of ethical and sustainable sourcing among our suppliers, focusing on transparency, fair labour practices, and reducing our carbon footprint. While progress has been made, there's ongoing work to expand these practices throughout our supply chain network. 

Another initiative was the publication of our sustainability reports, since 2020, aiming to transparently communicate our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. These reports highlight our achievements, challenges, and future sustainability goals, reinforcing our dedication to accountability and transparency, in line with the Group's mission. 

Furthermore, as a connector between various internal stakeholders, I've facilitated collaboration across departments to ensure that sustainability remains integrated in our business strategies.

What would you like to see the IMG Group achieve within the upcoming years?

I see the IMG Group becoming a global leader in promoting regeneration and sustainability across industries. Specifically, I aspire for our company to emerge as a beacon of positive impact, not just within our operations but also in our influence on the broader environment, society, and industry practices.

I aim for the IMG Group to set a benchmark as a B Corp company, showcasing our commitment to ethical, social, and environmental standards.  I envision us as a reference point in the B Corp movement, inspiring and influencing other organisations to prioritize sustainability, transparency, and a purpose-driven approach.
