Our Community,
Our Responsibility

Our commitment to sustainability reaches far beyond our environment. At Quintis, we understand the responsibility we have to our communities, our environment and our people. We are proudly certified by SEDEX, one of the world’s leading organisations for managing responsible sourcing in supply chains and fighting against modern slavery.

Quintis is also raising the bar for sustainability in the flavour and fragrance sectors as a signatory of the IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charter, a joint initiative between the International Fragrance Association and the International Organization of the Flavor Industry. Inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the Charter demonstrates our commitment to innovation, benchmarking and sharing of best practice.

People are just as important as the environments we operate in. Quintis is accredited by REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals), adopted by the European Union to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

Forest Management
at Quintis

We believe that our commitment to sustainability is enhanced by our dedication to our forest management activities. Our responsibilities extend to the communities we operate in, to the people we hire and the environment we thrive in. Because of this, we have developed our forest management policy, along with associated plantation maps and forest management plan, to help guide us in our day-to-day operations.

Mature trees absorb 21kg of carbon dioxide per annum, meaning our trees remove over 115,000 tonnes of CO2 from the earth’s atmosphere each year.

Quintis Water Recycling

For the Future

Most of our plantations use advanced drip irrigation technology, reducing water usage by up to 40% over the course of a plantation’s life. We earned a Regional and Remote Water Award for our water recycling initiatives in Kununurra. At our steam distillation facility near Albany, we have invested over AUD$3 million to reduce our environmental footprint, winning the prestigious Champion Award from the Western Australian Water Corporation.

Our energy consumption and use of fossil fuels has also been reduced. We use waste wood from other industries to power a biomass boiler. This produces maximum energy with minimum emissions. Leftover potash is then used in soil rebalancing.

Preserving the environment matters to us. By collaborating closely with the Kimberley Wildlife Rescue Services, we limit our environmental impact on native fauna, and we don’t test any of our products on animals
