The environment is really important to us and we are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact. We have a number of ongoing projects aimed at making our business environmentally friendly and we are striving towards carbon neutrality.
We use 100% renewable electricity to run our business and have invested heavily in our 1000sqm Solar PV installation, which produces an incredible 60% of our energy. We have now started to replace our company vehicles with electric models.
We use cardboard for our shipping and create new padding materials by shredding the cardboard we receive into the company. So far we have eliminated over 95% of the plastic from our parcels.
We have successfully worked with some of our suppliers to eliminate plastic from product packaging, and where possible, to supply us using recycled cardboard for their boxes. We continue to work with all our suppliers to further reduce plastic packaging.
We have signed up to Valpak's WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Distributor Take-Back Scheme (Registration ID: 401363).
We are working with our employees to plant wildflower seeds and more trees in the large grounds of our headquarters.
