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  100% 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 end of 2025
  • replace its Hybrid Electric vehicle with a 100% electric car by end of 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 end of 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.

A portion of the emissions a website creates is generated by YOU. If you're not using renewable energy, carbon dioxide emissions will be one of the consequences.

This is one of the reasons why the Nest has chosen CREATE as its Web Host partner. A business committed to reducing the environmental impact of shopping online with a three fold approach :

1) Reducing their emissions and those of their providers, creating speed efficiencies through well optimised, faster and more responsive websites.

2) Investing in Carbon Reduction schemes (just over 1000 tonnes so far), which is a form of carbon offsetting, ensuring carbon emissions are actually removed and reduced, not just transferred.

3) Million Tree Pledge. Reforestation plays an incredibly important part in protecting biodiversity, improving the health of our planet and absorbing CO2. Over 10 million trees have be planted to date with 51 million more pledged.

CREATE have pledged to plant 1 million trees by 2030, (see here for details) and since October 2021 over £304.157 trees have been planted.

Thanks for reading and I hope that will can all work together to make a's very much needed.
