Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time and we need to focus on the impact our business has on the environment, but also the risk that climate change poses on our business, our industry and our planet. Climate change also introduces risk across our value chain, it goes both ways.
We are tackling climate change by investing in finding new solutions within all areas of our organisation, but where we can make the largest difference is within manufacturing and logistics.
We tweak our designs, materials, qualities and processing standards. We keep a constant and open dialogue with, and do regular audits of, our suppliers and work on increased transparency in our supply chain. We never stop searching for smarter solutions for our logistics, as well as sustainable handling and build of our stores and our own operations.
OUR KEY FOCUS AREAS FOR DECREASING OUR CO2 FOOTPRINT ARE:
• Sustainable materials and processes
• Streamlined transports and shipping
• Efficient packaging
• Sustainable trade solutions
