Sustainability is close to our hearts
The responsible use of our resources and our environment is of the utmost importance to us. This is why we consider it our responsibility to make a contribution to environmental protection. We don’t just want to jump on the proverbial bandwagon just because it’s “trendy” at the moment – we have no interest in greenwashing.
For us, that means approaching sustainability transparently and realistically. Are we as a company currently doing enough to protect the environment? The answer, in our eyes, is a resounding no. But we have committed ourselves to honouring our responsibility and continuously increasing our environmental commitment – and that’s a promise.
We plant a tree for every order!
On our journey to carbon neutrality, we teamed up with our partners at getgreenspark to plant a tree for every order made in our online shop – starting October 2021. More information:
Our parcels are shipped CO₂-neutrally.
We calculate the CO₂ emissions for the dispatch of all SIEGFRIED parcels and subsequently offset them. One way to retroactively offset emissions is to invest in climate protection projects or renewable energies. These projects should be both audited and certified by independent organisations. We joined DHL’s GoGreen programme, one of the most pioneering projects in the field of green logistics, in December 2020.
In order to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible, we made a point of taking a closer look at our shipping cartons. We now use customised shipping boxes for all standard shipments and thus do not use any filling material at all. That said, we only use compostable packaging chips based on vegetable starch if filling material becomes necessary in certain cases.
