At iTAB, we are committed to decarbonization. We believe in the power of running to make a positive impact not only on individuals but on the planet we call home. Your achievements deserve to be celebrated in a way that resonates with your values. With our new Project Eco iTAB initiatives, you not only commemorate milestones but create a lasting impact with every personalized medal. Our commitment to sustainability is woven into the fabric of our operations, reflecting our dedication to creating a brighter, greener future.

100% Sustainable Materials

Introducing Eco iTAB 

Introducing our new 100% recycled Eco iTAB range — where the magic of your achievements meets the magic of sustainability. Crafted from recycled plastic, they are a testament to our commitment to both your memories and the well-being of our planet.

By utilizing recycled materials, we reimagine waste as a valuable resource. Each Eco iTAB is a small yet impactful step toward a circular economy, where materials are repurposed and given new life, thus reducing our requirement for more raw materials.

WEEE Recycled Plastic 

The Eco iTAB utilizes UK-sourced Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling (WEEE) materials. The black compound Ribbon Hanger is derived from small domestic appliances, and is Post Consumer Recycled (PCR), ensuring a cleaner, more consistent, and less-contaminated composition compared to common PCR materials. Adhering to the stringent standards set for electrical equipment, our ribbon hangers feature 1st generation recycled material, moulded only once to meet the highest quality standards.

100% Recycled Packaging

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Our commitment to eco-friendly packaging ensures that your personalized medals reach you securely while minimizing environmental impact.

Our packaging and envelopes proudly bears the Forest Stewardship Council FSC certification for Recycled Materials, a mark of our dedication to responsible sourcing. All forest-based materials used in our products or packaging have undergone rigorous verification, ensuring they are 100% recycled. Made from 100% recycled pulp from white waste, re-using old paper instead of trees also uses 30-50% less energy and can be recycled between 6-8 times. With this commitment, we not only minimize our environmental footprint but also contribute to the preservation of our precious forests.

Eco-Line Inks and Process-Free Printing

Unveiling the beauty of your personalized medals involves a meticulous printing process that aligns with our eco-conscious ethos. Our eco consumable inks are manufactured using renewable raw materials, prioritizing sustainability at every step. Eco-Line inks, coupled with Process-Free printing plates, represent a revolutionary approach. By eliminating the need for chemicals and water in the printing process, we champion ecological benefits, including reduced emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC), ammonia, and particulate matter. Beyond environmental advantages, this approach signifies our commitment to using fewer chemicals and generating less wastewater.

100% Renewable Energy

iTAB Wind Farm

100% Green Electricity

iTAB is proud to partner with Octopus Energy, one of Europe’s largest investors in renewable power. Our energy is primarily sourced from wind, solar, and hydro sources, and all our electricity tariff is sourced from 100% green, carbon-free energy. These natural elements, harnessed responsibly, fuel our commitment to reducing environmental impact. This means that every aspect of your personalized medal is crafted using electricity generated from renewable sources, leaving a minimal carbon footprint.

Carbon Neutrality Through Offsetting

Our renewable electricity is not just a promise; it’s certified by Ofgem-approved renewable certificates, including Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs), and offsets gas emissions by supporting Renewable World’s Gold Standard certified carbon avoidance projects.  These certificates ensure the legitimacy of our commitment to green energy, providing transparency and accountability.

Turning Climate Ambition into Impact

At iTAB, we are dedicated to sustainability, and committed to decarbonization at every level of our operations. This commitment extends to our working office space, where we employ energy-efficient appliances and minimize consumption. Our engraving machinery contains carbon filters that remove VOCs and odour in the air. All electricity, and heating is powered and supplied from off-site renewable energy sources. We continuously explore ways to reduce our carbon footprint through off-site green activities. Collaborating with delivery partners who share our commitment to environmental responsibility, we strive to make every aspect of our operations align with a net-zero future.

Team Eco-Initiatives

Our team actively engages in initiatives to mitigate air and ground pollution. This involves rigorous office recycling practices, opting for sustainable commuting methods such as walking and cycling, and participating in weekly litter-picking activities along the surrounding roadsides.
