Committed to a healthier, happier planet
We are committed to delivering high quality, innovative designs to meet our customers' needs in an ever-evolving market without compromising on our global responsibility and ethical values.
Measuring our emissions
Over the last two years, we've been calculating our Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon footprint. Our next step is to decide on a baseline year and develop a reduction strategy. More on this soon!
Low impact deliveries
UK customers can take advantage of the following low impact delivery options:
- Click & Collect or InPost lockers, see the data to back it up here.
- DPD offset all delivery emissions so whenever you select them at checkout, you're opting for a carbon neutral service.
- Our London customers can take advantage of a new low-impact delivery solution, with Packfleet. They use renewable energy to charge their electric vehicles. Within M25 postcodes only.
Recycling and general waste
B&M Waste Management, a carbon neutral company, takes all the waste from our office and distribution centre, in Bromborough, UK. This is separated and diverted to the correct waste streams in the depo. They'll either recycle our waste or turn it into energy.
We completed a review of our main packaging products and gave them a revamp!
We have partnered with Engenera who have installed ground-breaking combined heat and power units (CHP) on site. But why is this important? This specially designed system offers a clean and renewable heat source for the entire warehouse and office space at our Bromborough site.
Cycle to work scheme
We have introduced a new incentive scheme for our staff, to opt for a bike instead of a car, when travelling to work.
Where possible, our staff love to carpool! If there are up to four of you in a car, that's up to three cars off the road making the same journey. This is great for reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, mitigating traffic and reducing the demand for parking infrastructure. You can do this too!
The lighting in our distribution centre is motion activated so that we minimise energy use. All lights are LED.
We work with ReCover IT who are a local IT disposal company in Liverpool, UK. They securely destroy all data on our end-of-life devices. The remaining hardware is repaired or recycled! They donate a portion of their sales to charity.
