We are set to revolutionize the fulfillment industry by leading the way with sustainable and carbon neutral practices
79% of all customers said it is important for brands to provide full transparency and authenticity, like sustainability certifications, when they’re purchasing goods.
Over two-thirds of purpose-driven shoppers pay an added premium of 35% more per upfront cost for sustainable purchases, such as recycled or eco-friendly goods.
70% of millennials say that a company’s environmental focus influences their purchase decisions and would rather choose environmentally friendly shipping.
More than half (57%) of surveyed online shoppers state that they are willing to change their purchasing habits to help reduce negative environmental impact.
Just as in 2020 and 2021, and following through on our claim to environmentally friendly action, byrd will continue to be climate-neutral in 2022! This year, we have enlisted professional help from ClimatePartner to accurately measure our carbon footprint and take another step towards even greener action. In addition to prioritizing and making efforts to reduce our emissions, we have once more committed to offsetting our unavoidable CO2 emissions by supporting two projects in Colombia and Brazil. By protecting endangered forests and expanding wind energy, we were able to offset more than 450t of CO2e.
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.
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.
