Planetly & byrd sustainability project
Sustainability and corporate responsibility are core building blocks of byrd since day one and moving towards reducing and avoiding carbon emissions of our corporate activities is a natural step forward. This is why we have partnered up with Planetly to find out more about our company’s carbon footprint and how to get the most out of our carbon offset activities. In this project we have offset a total of 150t CO2e by supporting two projects; Biogas Project, North Brabant in the Netherlands and Borneo Rainforest REDD+ Project in Indonesia.
One Tree Planted & byrd sustainability project
The need for sustainability in e-commerce and curbing the impacts of global warming became paramount, and we want to support the growing call for eco-friendly practices in e-commerce and logistics. Building on that sentiment we have, for the consecutive year now, partnered up with Onetreeplanted and joined their reforestation campaign in Scotland. We donated 1 tree for every 100 shipments fulfilled during the Christmas season of 2020 and in total, we have effectively offset 21,5 tonnes (metric) of carbon dioxide emissions.
