At BISON, the sweet spot is the place where creating high quality, inspiring and exciting work brings value to the customer first, without creating pain or suffering to any creature or planet Earth.
Since 2020, BISON has undergone a major ‘planet first’ overhaul, including fifty-eight solar panels on our roof, making us 85% off grid, electric vehicle/chargers, an upgraded heating/cooling system that has reduced our carbon by 75% and we are currently working on our ‘BISON Village’ at the rear of BISON HQ, which includes a nature area, outdoor living/working/workout.
We have also reviewed all of our products, services and packaging – our printing uses vegan inks/is ethically sourced as standard, we are zero to landfill and we have reduced plastic in packaging/for one-time use by 95%.
As a result of these continued efforts, BISON has recently been awarded ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, recognising our commitment to quality management systems and environmental management. These certifications, granted by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), celebrate our focus around two key areas – people, and the planet.
The team took part in Veganuary in 2022 and decided to take up the challenge again for 2023! There were some great conversations had and the stats have been game-changing!
“BISON is aware that the climate situation is getting worse, not better, and every team member understands they have a part to play in helping to shape what happens next. We see it not only as a challenge but as our duty to make ethical and environmental alternative choices exciting and compelling to consumers. The whole team is motivated by this and well informed of developments that support this movement, and has continued throughout this journey to take every possible opportunity to adapt and grow. Ultimately we are a purpose lead business which makes coming to work most fulfilling”.
