Our Mission for Sustainable Events
As part of CCL Industries, we are setting several ambitious waste targets to reduce the environmental impact of our products, including 90% reduction globally in waste to landfill by 2025 and 100% of facilities in North America and Europe becoming net-zero waste to landfill by 2030.
We have committed to reducing our emissions by responsible sourcing and working with other companies that mirror our ethos. We are also continuing to produce high quality, affordable products, such as sustainable wristbands, eco lanyards and recyclable badges – to make eco-friendly event planning as easy as possible. Between now and 2025 we are consciously making efforts to sourcing ethically all of our raw materials plus working hard behind to scenes to ensure we’re contributing to the full circular economy of events.
identilam and ID&C have partnered with Make it Wild to offset the emissions produced in the UK to enable us to make proactive strides towards this.
Annually we will invite our customers to Make It Wild’s UK locations to understand the fantastic way we fulfill our environmental policy and corporate social responsibilities by working with the team at Make it Wild. At present we offset 270+ tonnes of carbon per year and are working hard to reduce that.
Post Event Recycling:
Our post-event recycling scheme now gives customers the opportunity to be even greener. Simply opt-in to our scheme, send us your used wristbands, lanyards and passes, and let us do the rest. We work with an external partner to collate, and sort returned products. The items are then cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products.
We rolled the scheme out at EPS 2023 at the Excel and saw a 42% OF ACCREDITATION RETURNED TO BINS, this is what Mash Media had to say:
“Having chosen ID&C back in 2014 to be our official provider of lanyards for all our events, we couldn’t be happier with quality of the product and efficiency of the team. When our contract came up in 2021 and with our company opting for more sustainable solutions, ID&C went above and beyond to help us find both sustainable products but also assist us in the recycle and replenishment of the lanyards facilitating dump-bins for our visitors to leave behind when leaving our events.
Ordering through ID&C and now Identilam is so easy, I can scroll the range online and buy online, however they also have friendly staff who go above and beyond to talk to you and find the right solution, colour scheme and eco-friendly solutions to match the theme of your event. I would highly recommend”.

Carbon Neutral Shipping:
In conjunction with UPS, we are now offsetting all carbon emissions generated from our UPS shipments. This means that we can offer a completely carbon neutral delivery service on your orders.
With our expanding environmental schemes, and our range of eco-friendly products, it’s now even easier to be green with ID&C and identilam.
Carbon Neutral business:
But it doesn’t stop there. Although our current efforts allow us to be a carbon neutral company, we also know there is more work to be done. We are constantly exploring new and efficient ways to help our customers reach their sustainability goals too. Our ever-expanding eco range helps to reduce the environmental impact of your event without compromising on quality.
