Climate neutral company
Becoming 'climate neutral' means reducing greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible, but it also means compensating for any remaining emissions. A net-zero emissions balance is achieved when the amount of greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere is neutralised. Based on the analysis, our offices have produced and offset 79,51 tonnes CO2 in 2022 to become climate neutral. We will continue working on reducing our emissions through effective measures such as using UPS climate neutral delivery, reusing packaging material, and using electric company cars.
We’re proud to announce that fresh id has been awarded the prestigious ISO 14001:2015 accreditation by TÜV SÜD. In order to achieve this globally recognized award, we have evidenced our quality management systems, as well as the high level of quality customer service that we provide, while having a strong focus on sustainable development initiatives. ISO 14001:2015 is the International Standard for Environmental Management Systems (EMS), and was designed to help businesses and other organizations to reduce their environmental impact.
We try to generate as little waste as possible
We take our responsibility as a company very seriously and try to generate as little waste as possible. In order to achieve this goal, we give discounts to customers who forego plastic packaging or select an environmentally friendly alternative instead. We partnered with the German Institute for Climate Neutrality and offer climate neutral productions that help our customers to offset their emissions. Our samples and prototypes are shipped climate neutral via UPS and we are a member of the The United Nations Global Compact initiative.
UPS climate neutral delivery
fresh id is taking part in the UPS carbon neutral program and pays a small incremental amount to offset the climate impact of the delivery of each of our pack- ages. This means that for every tonne of CO2 a package produces in transporta- tion, an equivalent amount of CO2 is saved by a verified emission reduction project somewhere else in the world.
Member UN global impact
fresh id a proud member of the United Nations Global Compact which is a non-binding United Nations pact to encourage businesses and firms world-wide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. The UN Global Compact is a principle-based framework for busi- nesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.
Climate neutral production
fresh id has partnered with the German Institute for Sustainability and Economics and offers climate neutral production by calculating & offsetting all emissions. This helps our customers making their sustainability performance visible to the outside world.
Social Responsibility Is Very Important To Us As A Company
We regularly support organisations such as ReTribe that creates a safe space that supports and promotes self-exploration, connection, and learning, through spiritual and physical practices or JOSAN HK who donates 100% of their profits to charity and for every JOSAN product sold, one bag of rice is bought for a family in need.
