Sustainability & Responsibility
Sustainability and Responsibility: Our Commitment to Ethical Business Practices
At our company, we place a strong emphasis on sustainability and responsibility in all aspects of our operations. We are committed to producing products that are environmentally friendly and socially responsible, while also ensuring that our business practices align with these values. We believe that it is our duty to minimise our impact on the environment and contribute positively to society, and we take this responsibility very seriously.
Environmental friendly, recycled and FSC certified boxes
We transport a lot of boxes and having as environmentally friendly packaging as possible is very important to us. The boxes we use are available in several sizes so that the packers can choose the smallest possible box size for your goods. This way, we transport as little air as possible. The boxes we use consist of 100 % recycled material and they are FSC certified. Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is the leading certification body for sustainable forest management. FSC works for environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically viable use of the world's forests. FSC is an international and independent organisation. FSC was created to prevent continuous depletion of forest lands.
We climate compensate for our transports from the US through South Pole Groups climate projects. South Pole develops and implements comprehensive emission reduction projects and strategies that turn climate action into long-term business opportunities for companies, governments and organisations around the world.
The packaging collection, FTI
Greatlife Group AB is affiliated to FTI Which means that we pay packaging fees that cover the cost of recycling the packaging of the goods we sell into new products. FTI (Förpacknings- och Tidningsinsamlingen) is a company in the recycling industry that is responsible for ensuring that packaging and newspapers in Sweden are collected and recycled.
Solar cell plant
During the spring of 2021, a solar cell plant was installed at our logistics centre outside Stockholm. The solar cell installation on the roof generates an annual production of approximately 240 000 kWh distributed over a total of 588 solar panels.
100 % renewable electricity
We use GodEl with 100 % renewable electricity for our logistics centre and office. GodEl is owned by the GoodCause foundation, who donates the company’s entire profits to charity.
They only sell electricity that originates from renewable sources and their electricity is eco-labelled with SSNC’s Good Environmental Choice. In addition, they choose to climate compensate for the electricity contract.
