Corporate Social Responsibility

We believe and invest heavily in our future. In order for us to take control over our CSR agenda, we separate what we can do internally and what requirements we have towards our external suppliers.

In our internal sustainability approach, we focus on:

  • Production and transports

  • Paper consumptions

  • Plastic consumption

  • Weight

  • Suppliers.

We are constantly working with these five (equally important) focus areas, and we do this by:

  1. Production and transports where we have:

    • Moved our warehouse to EU classified green building, powered by renewable energy and solar panels on the roof

    • Motion sensor of electricity

    • Forklifts and machines powered by renewable energy

    • A constant supervision and analysis of transport patterns to ensure reduced CO2 footprint.

  2. Paper consumption where we are:

    • Working with customers to digitalize all paper to and from crew. Latest project saved us 1,5 million pcs of A5 papers/year.

    • Using FSC approved paper, and CO2 neutral production, for usage of all paper

  3. Plastic consumption where we have:

    • All the pre-order plastic bags changed to recycled plastic

    • All the plastic wrapping (magazines) moved to 100% recycle

  4. Reducing weight by focusing on:

    • Creating and optimizing reversed uplift

    • Reducing weight on-board, including load plans to be optimized for specific route/timing of the day

Our approach when it comes to our external suppliers are for us naturally. All suppliers must sign up to a number of requirements, including labour, before they are even considered.

Together with the requirements are we in dialogue with our suppliers, to minimize our climate footprint. Based on the changing in demand of climate-friendly, and new improvements within logistics are we nudging our external suppliers to work as sustainability as possible.

Below are some of the topics we require and nudge suppliers to do:

  • Remove products that are bad for the climate for example Palm Oil, Parabens, Triclosan

  • Reduce the usage of plastic and cartons, a lot of products are wrapped in extra plastic (cellophane)

  • Use re-usable PET bottles

  • Raise the focus on products with a renewable ‘twist’
