Every Day Earth Day: Our Commitment to Sustainability

Earth Day 2022

As a leading logistics company, Green Fulfilment understand the environmental challenges we face. Every day, not just on Earth Day, we strive to be mindful of our impact.

Earth Day, celebrated each 22nd of April since 1970, unites millions globally to raise awareness about critical environmental issues like climate change, air pollution, and deforestation. The recent IPCC report served as a stark warning, urging immediate action to prevent catastrophic consequences from exceeding 2°C in global temperatures.

This year’s theme, “Invest in Our Planet,” resonates deeply with us. We’re actively implementing sustainable practices at our Glasgow locations.

We’re proud of our progress, but there’s always room for improvement. Here are some recent initiatives:

Green by Name, Greener by Action

  • Sustainable Packaging: We’ve switched to eco-friendly, recyclable packaging that’s cost-effective.
  • Smart Packing: We minimise wasted space by using appropriately sized boxes, reducing delivery emissions.
  • Tech Investment: We continuously invest in digitising operations for smoother workflows.
  • Going Paperless: We’re eliminating paper usage to further decrease our carbon footprint.
  • Green Champions: We’re empowering employees through Green Champions training from Zero Waste Scotland.
  • Reducing Single-Use Plastics: We’ve minimised plastic use in our services and encourage employees to follow suit.
  • Carbon Offsetting and B Corp: We’re exploring carbon offsetting projects and B Corp accreditation, and we encourage clients to join us on this sustainable journey.

Taking Action Together

This April, we’re focusing on employee engagement. We encourage carpooling, cycling, and ditching single-use plastics. We also conduct monthly process reviews to identify further sustainability opportunities.

Earth Day is a crucial reminder of the urgency to act. A recent study by the Medical University of Vienna revealed the alarming presence of microplastics (five grams per person, per week!) in our bodies. It’s time to eliminate single-use plastics entirely. We’ve signed the global plastics treaty, and you can too!
