Our ESG Journey

Better for your office + our world

We are committed to delivering exceptional workplace solutions in a way that just makes the world better. To support this commitment, we have implemented comprehensive policies on product stewardship, environmental sustainability, Anti-modern slavery safety. These policies reflect our values and help us ensure that we are always exceeding our clients’ expectations while doing our part to make a positive impact on the world. Our aim is to be totally carbon neutral by 2035. At this stage we’re on track to achieving our goal.

Product Stewardship

At AWM, we work with our manufacturing partners and suppliers to ensure that our products are manufactured in a socially and environmentally responsible way, and we go beyond the sale and warranty period to support sustainable practices.
Through our Product Stewardship agreement, which is agreed upon prior to purchasing, we commit to accepting returned products at our Fairfield, NSW facility, with the goal of reusing or recycling as much of the material as possible. We provide an annual sustainability report to our clients to show how we are maximising the sustainability of our products.
The conditions include:
• That the customer returns the products to our Fairfield factory at the client’s expense.
• That the products are in their original state not changed or re-finished and resulting from normal wear and tear.
• A specified minimum quantity of items.
• A specified maximum age of the product(s).

It is important to note that toughened glass cannot be recycled in local council facilities.
However, through our stewardship agreement, we accept toughened glass returns and
recycle them accordingly at our premises.

Anti-Modern Slavery

We have implemented an employment and procurement strategy that prioritises human rights, identifies and assesses the risks associated with modern slavery in our supply chain. Our aim is to never associate with a supplier who does not respect human rights.

We also educate our workers about the realities of modern slavery so that they can identify and speak up should they suspect modern slavery occuring within our supply chain.

The objectives of our Modern Anti-Slavery Policy is to –

  • Implementing an employment and procurement strategy which protects human rights
  • Identifying our suppliers and supply chain
  • Identifying the risks associated with modern slavery in our supply chain
  • Putting controls in place to ensure when we engage new suppliers, they have addressed modern slavery
  • Educating our workers about Modern Slavery
  • Engaging with our suppliers and encouraging then to address modern slavery in their workforce and their supply chains to protect human rights.

This policy is outlined during inductions and will be reviewed at our annual management review meeting.

Safety Policy

Safety is the top concern on any worksite. This is no different at AWM, whether it is on our factory floor or one of our offices. We are committed to the health and safety of all our team members, visitors, and clients.

To protect the people in our workplace we –

  • Comply with all statutory requirements, codes, standards, and guidelines
  • Establish objectives and target with the aim of eliminating work related incidents

Environmental Policy

At AWM, we wholeheartedly believe it’s our responsibility to leave this planet in a better condition for generations to come, which is why we aim to recycle as much material during production as possible. 100% of the timber, melamine, particle board, steel, aluminium, cardboard, and Echopanel® offcuts used in our workplace solutions are sent back to the supplier to reuse for new products, contributing to a circular economy.

To consistently deliver and expand on our promise to be at the forefront of sustainable workplace solutions, we have fully integrated an environmental management system within our process. We are committed to the following in our sustainability journey –

Our Factory

Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility

In 2022 we built a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Fairfield East, New South Wales to increase our capacity, efficiency, and sustainability.

Throughout the project, we have been mindful of the environmental impact of building a facility of this scale. As a result, we have put a great deal of thought and planning into ensuring that AWM leads the way in sustainability in Australian manufacturing.

Here is a quick overview of the building’s design and construction, as well as just some of the sustainability measures we have in store for the future:

All major construction materials and components were sourced locally, including the steel, glass, concrete, plasterboard, aluminium, and all doors

Where possible, we recycled and re-used all ducting, pipework, and wiring from our old factory

The 490 concrete panels were caste in-house. These 175mm solid wall panels offer thermal ratings for winter and summer

Where possible, we recycled and re-used all ducting, pipework, and wiring from our old factory

A 280,000 litre water tank to supply everything except drinking water

Heat from our air compressors will keep the factory warm during winter

Solar panels currently supply 30% of the factory’s power

The main factory does not need lights on sunny days thanks to skylights peppered across the roof

Our plan is to expand the solar panels into a 400kW system, considerably reducing our base load power and to share our excess power on the weekends to offset our other buildings across the country

We are currently changing our forklifts to be electric-powered


Our commitment to sustainability is at the core of everything we do.

We are proud to be certified for our environmentally-friendly practices, and we continuously strive to meet even higher Australian and International standards.
We believe that by adopting processes and practices that reduce our environmental impact, we can provide our clients with the highest quality workplace solutions while leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
We are committed to adopting processes and practices aimed at reducing our environmental footprint whilst maintaining a superior level of quality. As a result of our diligence and leadership within this area, we are certified for a number of quality and environmental accreditations that acknowledge our commitment to producing superior quality products with as minimal environmental impact as possible.

Our journey to carbon neutrality

Transforming our workplace with sustainable practices

Where We’re At & What’s Ahead

If you’re curious about how much energy we’re using and producing, head to our factory’s live energy dashboard.

Here’s what we have planned in the future to help us reach our ESG goals:

  • Expanding our solar into a 300kw system, thus reducing our baseload power and share our excess power
  • Collaborate with local organisations to aid domestic violence victims by providing furniture from defits, suppliers and manual labour.
  • Work with our suppliers to further support responsible sourcing, packaging and offering long-term warranties, all while ensuring ethical practices are adhered to.
