We are great believers in the impact of the small things and the importance of the ‘contribution of the many’. That’s why we’re committed to making smart use of the Earth’s resources. We recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as a key part of our business strategy and operating methods.
For us, this is not a marketing campaign, for us this is essential to our core beliefs as company and as humans.
We achieved Climate Positive for business operations in 2020 as a key milestone. That is the start, but certainly not the end!
We partnered with Earthly to calculate our carbon footprint and reverse it. We are proud to share that we did this for 2020 and we are just getting started!Like our bodies, the earth is the only place we have to live, so fighting for it and taking accountability is key! We have a lot to learn and do, but we are commited 💪
At stronger, we strive to build sustainability into what we do
ONE STEP AT A TIME!
We constantly look for ways to be even more responsible in our use of resources and encourage customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same whenever we find the right opportunity. If you have ideas for us to implement please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, we are always looking for ideas to be better.
JUST A CUP, THANKS
Suggesting the kettle to be boiled only for the cuppa you are making and not full if not needed
Wild flower garden outside of the office and on top of our office. Next steps are to replace the lawn for wildflowers too! Water is collected from the roofs for the gardens. Insects and birds houses have been created. We cherish having an outdoor call being visited by bees, birds and butterflies.
Ask our partners to minimize the amount of packing and/or work together to do that
Suggest our logistics partners to go towards electric cars. Making this choice for us too!
Planning ahead of time helps, so that we use the most environmentally friendly transport but let's be honest about it, normally those are also more cost effective so it is a win win
LESS PRINT PLEASE
Our budget for printing has gone down and will continue to go down as most of our activities and campaigns go digital. Sounds cheeky but we try to reuse as much as possible the envelopes and packaging from what comes to the office. Our logos have also a 70% less ink version which are using for print as priority.
Our aim as a company is improve people's wellness by scouting the marketplace for the best from all over the world; when possibly we try to do that digitally and minimise our international travelling
CONFERENCE CALL... SURE!
Likewise, face to face meetings are very valuable and we absolutely love them but our contracts with Google and other technologies allows us to use the best in technology again to be more environmentally friendly and efficient
YOU DON'T NEED THAT LIGHT
We seek to reduce the amount of energy used as much as possible. Constantly asking the question, ‘Do you really need that extra light?’
TURN IT OFF IF YOU DON'T USE IT
Lights and electrical equipment will be switched off when not in use
ENVIROMENT MODES ON
Heating is adjusted to recommended environmental modes ON. Easy rule of thumb for our office is, before you turn the heating up, ask ‘Am I dressed for winter or summer’?
ENERGY AND EFFICIENCY
The energy consumption and efficiency of new products will be taken into account when purchasing and we try as much as possible to pay the little extra for more efficient products with environmentally modes on. We will favour more environmentally friendly and efficient products and services as part of the equation
We reuse and recycle everything we are able to at our office. A good practice we learned was to check your bins from time to time and go...'could we have found an alternative for that?"
Our office energy and gas supplier provides their services from green sources
Our cleaning materials used are from ecover. Only when ecover or equal supplier doesn’t supply we purchase outside of the environmentally friendly range
We will only use licensed and appropriate organisations to dispose of waste
Climate positive small business
SAVING 70% OF INK? YES PLEASE!
Unlike our standard and digital branded version. Reducing the environmental impact of our packaging.
