Water & waste

Through efficient buildings, we make progress toward water conservation and waste diversion.

At Invesco, we aim to improve in our environmental performance year over year. This includes conserving water and reducing waste in our offices as much as possible. 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.

On an ongoing basis, we find innovative ways to drive water efficiencies and reduce our waste and continue to focus on eliminating single-use plastic (SUP) from our ofices. Most Invesco sites in the APAC region are now SUP-free. In 2022, we conducted SUP-free pilots at select offices in North America and EMEA. 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 addition, our North America offices partner with Green Standards—an organization dedicated to responsible office decommissioning. Through this partnership, we have reduced waste and maximized ESG impact.

Since 2021:

  • 222 tons of office waste converted into $27,210 of in-kind charitable donations
  • 222.5 tons diverted from landfills
  • 100% landfill diversion rate with 6 nonprofit and community beneficiaries
  • 588 metric tons of CO2e emissions reduced

Which is equal to:
  • 65,834 gallons of gasoline not burned
  • 15,048 tree seedlings grown for 10 years

Making waste a thing of the past in the U.K.

We strive to make the most of every material and find new uses for objects and equipment that are no longer needed at Invesco. With these principles in mind, our U.K. offices have achieved zero waste to landfill by:

  • Donating unused furniture and computer monitors to nonprofits, such as Business2Schools, for reuse by local schools.
  • Recycling waste electrical equipment, stationery, printer toners and batteries through TerraCycle.
  • Sending nonrecyclables (general waste) to an energy recovery plant, generating enough electricity for approximately 50,000 homes per year.
  • Sending food waste to an anaerobic digestion plant, generating biogas and nutrient-rich fertilizer.
  • Composting veggie and fruit peelings from the restaurant to on-site composters.
