Environmental Policy

Steenbergs is committed to sourcing, blending and packing the best natural herbs, spices, flavours, teas and hot chocolates, sourcing these wherever possible as organically grown and fairly traded.

Steenbergs believes that a healthy world is necessary for the well-being of all people and their communities, as well as all animals and plants that make up this beautiful world.  We see one of humanity’s key challenges to be how to sustainably balance the demands of people and the earth’s ecosystems, particularly in terms of the soil, land, water and air.

For Steenbergs, it is fundamental to who we are as people that we strive to minimise the effects of our commercial activities on the world, by choosing ways of working that have the least worst environmental and societal impact of the options available to us.  Where we remain unhappy with those options, we will try to strive to catalyse changes to improve our work and the products and services available to us.

Overall, we wish to minimise the potential harmful effects of our commercial activities wherever and whenever this is practicable and work to secure measurable environmental benefits from our Environmental Management Strategy.
