Joining Ice
Ice Environmental Policies
How do you choose which retailers you work with?

Before companies are invited to join Ice, they are assessed to ensure that they are doing there bit for the environment. To complete this assessment Ice collates information about the sustainability profile and CSR policy of the company. This information is collated from publically available sources such as annual reports, news articles and NGO reports.

To assess whether this information represents good environmental performance Ice compares this information to other businesses in the same sector. This is done using criteria set out in sector protocols. This ensures all companies within a sector are assessed against the same criteria and that the results are clear and transparent. Information about the environmental credentials’ of each retailer is available on the retailer page. More information about the selection process is available on the partner selection criteria page here.

Why do you work with retailers in the transport industry?

TUI and First Choice operate the most fuel efficient airline in Europe and are committed to enrolling all of their hotels in environmental management systems by 2020. We appreciate that flying is a controversial activity from an environmental perspective but also acknowledge that many of our customers wish to holiday abroad. By working with TUI and First Choice we can help them choose a more environmentally friendly operator. TUI Group (the owners of TUI and First Choice) have an in depth sustainability strategy which is available here.
