Environment, Sustainability and Governance Report 2023

The Mint Partners exists to imagine the next chapter of the Australian and NZ culture.

In keeping with our purpose, MINT as an organisation is focused on the future and how the decisions we make as an organisation now, impact the next chapter of our industry, our country and our world.
MINT is regularly looking for ways to operate responsibly. Our ESG report addresses some key areas of focus and efforts to date, but we know that we can be doing more. We encourage our staff, partners and clients to continue to speak to us about what else we can do together.


Who do we choose to support?
In 2022 we audited all office supplies and suppliers from waste disposal, to cleaning services and toilet paper to switch to more responsible businesses. As of 2023, all office supplies are Forest Stewardship Council certified.

What do we send out? 
Packaging for send-outs is a large part of MINT’s business. In 2022 we replaced showroom packaging with biodegradable and recyclable paper bags, and compostable garment bags.  All packaging is now printed with MINT’s return address and we ask that it is returned for re-use or responsible disposal.

What do propose to our clients? 
Since 2022, for any client events or send-outs, MINT employees suggest recycled and recyclable materials. Biodegradable post bags are used for posted send-outs where paper and cardboard is not possible.


Food waste

In 2022, MINT updated the marked bins for mixed recyclables, cardboard/paper and general waste with clear instructions and examples. Outside of bathrooms, no other bins are offered in the office to encourage conscious disposal.
MINT discourages food waste with all kitchen food frozen or returned to employees to take home each Friday and any catering packaged and distributed same day to staff for consumption or re-served the following day.

Single use items

Single use plastics continue to be avoided in the office.
Printing is avoided wherever possible. FUJIFILM printer has a zero waste to landfill commitment for devices, parts and consumables collected from their customers and is achieving over 99.5% resource recovery.
Aerosols have been replaced with organic, lead-free soy candles or essential oils.

Energy consumption

Air-conditioning is switched off when sufficient temperature is reached. All electric blow heaters have been removed and a maximum of 4 oil heaters are used at a time.
From 2023 we updated our electricity to a 100% carbon neutral energy plan.

Water usage & and waste water management

From 2023, MINT carries out regular maintenance and checks for leaks. The dishwasher is used instead of handwashing dishes.

Circular economy

In 2023 MINT began a library in the office for book swapping rather than purchasing. LIME bikes are parked in front of the office and encouraged for staff commutes where possible.


Team events

All team events consider their intent and impact. Responsible measures have been implemented such as: lower-emission transport; low footprint events such as Lawn Bowls; food waste reduction with self-catering.

From 2023, MINT will undertake an environmental or social education event as a group once a year. 2023 was Cooking for a Cause with OzHarvest. The aim of this education is to improve how we behave as an office and as individuals as well as promoting idea generation for our clients.



MINT uses a feedback tracking tool to encourage transparent giving, receiving and requesting of feedback amongst staff on a day-to-day basis as well as twice yearly reviews. Monthly anonymous satisfaction surveys have been implemented alongside monthly staff rewards based on peer feedback.

MINT upholds a 24 hour standard for sharing news within the agency. This includes resignations and new hires. News is shared in person with an immediate email sent following for any staff not in attendance.
