Are you looking for a Carbon Neutral packaging supplier? If so, then look no further!
In short, we wanted to make some changes to how we run the business, making it even more environmentally friendly. They weren’t small changes either. They were big changes. And that’s just what we’ve done!
Our Carbon Neutral Changes – Delivery Offer
Possibly the biggest change we have made to reduce our carbon emissions was launched in March 2022.
Following vital feedback from our customers, we simplified our delivery offer, moving to 2 delivery zones. Our customers asked us to help them reduce their impact on the environment, and our new offering does just that. More orders are now being consolidated, with fewer deliveries being made to our regular customers.
The impact of this change was felt straight away, and we will see the benefit when we analyse our carbon footprint for 2022.
Our Carbon Neutral Changes – E-Cargo Bike Delivery Trial
In August 2022, we wanted to reduce our Carbon Emissions even further, so we jumped on 2 wheels (well, 3 actually) to make some deliveries by bike!
Working with Raleigh on this project, we are currently trailing completing some local deliveries using one of their e-cargo bikes.
Keep your eyes peeled for us riding around Worcester, and give us a wave if you see us!
Our Carbon Neutral Changes – Bike2Work Scheme
A large number of the team have engaged with the scheme, and are now cycling to work. We even celebrated ‘Cycle to Work Day’ in August – just look at all those happy cyclists!
Our Carbon Neutral Changes – Our Products
As well as looking at reducing our Carbon Emissions, we are always looking at sourcing the most environmentally friendly products too. Why not take a look at our blog on our top 6 options for eco friendly product protection for some inspiration! It’s packed with hints and tips on reducing the impact your packaging has on the environment.
For this part of the project, we needed to work with industry experts, so we partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain. They ran a full review of all of our emissions, and reported back the results. We then worked with them to offset our carbon emissions from 2021. It was a straight forward process, and the team have also recommended a number of ways to reduce our impact on the environment too. Watch this space for our next set of eco friendly goals!
Being a Carbon Neutral packaging supplier is something that everyone at Springpack is incredibly proud of. And we pledge to do all we can do reduce our carbon footprint even further.
