Sustainability

Demand for graphite is accelerating and so too is the demand for suppliers that can meet the highest international standards of quality, safety and environmental performance. From minesite to customer, International Graphite is building an ethical supply chain to ensure this commitment is built into the DNA of our products and processes.

International Graphite’s commitment to product quality and sustainability is integral to the company’s philosophy to bring high standards of supply chain governance and product stewardship to the high-tech graphite market.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

International Graphite is committed to minimising its environmental footprint through ethical, sustainable and energy-efficient production processes. It is focused on developing new technology that will improve the efficiency of current purification processes and minimise environmental impacts.

China has been the world leader in secondary graphite processing for years but its output is slowing and factories are closing as the Chinese Government strives to control pollution and lift safety standards. This creates a big opportunity for emerging industry leaders, like us, who can meet the stringent specifications and regulatory requirements demanded by today’s global customers.

The price of natural graphite has increased in the past five years as high-end customers look for better environmental performance and sustained product quality from their suppliers and move away from synthetic graphite.

PRODUCT STEWARDSHIP


International Graphite looks for partners and suppliers who share our commitment to quality, safety and environmental protection. In that way, we have full traceability across our product lifecycle. Raw materials are sourced from our international mining partners in East Africa, who have strong connections with Australia, one of the most sophisticated and demanding mining industries in the world.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

International Graphite is committed to achieving international Quality Assurance accreditation, verified by independent certification. Graphite will play a vital role in the evolution of electronics and next generation solutions for transport, power, aeronautics and computing. To prove themselves in this demanding market, global graphite manufacturers must deliver product that consistently meets the customer’s technical specifications.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a frontrunner in the evolving secondary graphite market, International Graphite has the capacity to bring significant benefits to the communities in which it operates. We value this opportunity. In the UAE, IG’s Mena plant is the catalyst for new graphite-focused manufacturing industries that will create jobs and reduce the economy’s reliance on oil. In Africa, our demand for quality, traceable product encourages international mining companies to invest, bringing quality production processes and modern infrastructure to the people in this emerging region.
