Water use and waste reduction
We aim to conserve water and reduce the waste we produce in our offices as much as possible. We focus on continuous improvement and achieving reductions year over year. Because many of our offices are green buildings with LEED or ISO 14001 certification, they follow stringent requirements for sustainability, including water use and waste management.
To further reduce waste in our offices, Invesco no longer purchases single-use items at our facilities, where practicable. Also, many of our offices have recycling programs for e-waste, batteries and other items, in addition to common items such as aluminum, glass and paper.
In 2020, our water use and waste generation were lower than in the previous year, due to fewer employees using Invesco facilities.
