The Nest's Sustainability Policy

A definition of sustainability ..... "meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs" (Brundtland, 1987).

The Nest's Sustainability Policy defines its commitment towards ethical and environmentally-friendly practices throughout everything it does.

A Parternship with you to Reuse & Recycle

The Nest aims to -

  • minimise waste by encouraging clients to use recyclable packaging when sending items in for resale.
  • reuse all packaging possible, including outer cardboard boxes in fulfillment.
  • use  biodegradable packing materials, minimising the use of plastic in fulfillment.
  • continually maintain and improve its day to day office practices to minimise the use of paper and consumables.

 

The Journey to Renewable Energy

Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished.

The Nest aims to -

  • continually maintain and improve its conscientious day to day management practices to minimise energy use.
  • move to 100% renewable energy by 2025
  • replace its Hybrid Electric vehicle with a 100% electric car by 2025.

 

A Committment to Conscious Delivery

Carbon emissions are the number one contributor to global warming. Excess CO2 gases released into the atmosphere by human activities such as burning fossil fuels, farming and deforestation are creating potentially cataclysmic climate changes. If we don't act to save our planet, future generations will pay the price.

The Nest's aims to -

  • provide ongoing support to a portfolio of climate charities via Tythe (a non-profit initiative from the EQ Foundation).
  • offset the carbon footprint made from every  purchase from the Nest by 2025.

The Nest's Logistic Partners

Responsible companies only want to do business with other responsible companies, so the Nest has chosen to use the services of DPD and Royal Mail for all its logistical requirements. 

Small parcels under 2kg are dispatched via RM (as 70% of parcels are small enough to tbe delivered by their 90,000 strong feet on the street) and heavier items via DPD Local.
