Our Commitment to Green Fulfilment: what are we doing to keep it clean?
At SCEND we’re making the most of the online revolution to reduce our unnecessary paper usage. We’re committed to a paperless warehouse system which allows us to use less paper when it comes to picking and packing. We use state-of-the-art technology connected to the cloud to reduce our need for unnecessary paper waste.
We’re always looking at ways to improve our processes by investing in technology. We’re constantly evolving to ensure we can help our clients, but when these investments can be greener too it's like getting a strike without the bumpers!
Our Commitment to Sustainability.
At SCEND we're committed to using less paper. That is just one of the reasons why we've invested in state-of-the-art technology to perfect our paperless pick-and-pack warehouse.
We're committed to using less packaging and more recycled and recyclable materials in our packages.
We're looking to implement recycling bins within both the office and the warehouse to encourage staff to follow the same commitment to sustainability.
Way back when, we abolished the use of plastic tape and bubble wrap – and honestly, we’ve not looked back!
Using exciting new machines with water-activated paper adhesive and choosing packing paper over traditional plastic wrapping, has allowed us to further our commitment to our green promise.
We're partnered with Lil Packaging to ensure that all parcels are sent using green packaging with a commitment to zero plastic.
eCo-fulfilment isn't just about the parcels, it's about SCEND as a business, and we understand that. This is why as a business we are also committed to using less energy. From turning out lights when they're not in use, to switching to lower-energy appliances.
We’re always looking at what our next steps are and trust us when we say we’ve got big plans. From planting trees to in-house recycling initiatives, we’re on the path to ensuring we’re part of the solution and not the problem.
We are officially a carbon-neutral certified business. Awarded in 2023, we gained certification from Carbon Neutral Britain (carbonneutralbritain.org) for our efforts and commitment to lowering our carbon footprint and dedication to keeping it that way!
We’re committed to working with people who share our green vision, that is why we’ve changed packaging suppliers to Lil Packaging. Their commitment to reducing single-use plastic and only using fully recyclable materials perfectly aligns with our vision.
Choosing couriers isn’t just about their speed, it is also about if they match our vision. DPD, Evri and Royal Mail all have big plans when it comes to reducing carbon emissions, with a fleet of electric vehicles and plans to be completely carbon neutral it is safe to say we’re on the same wavelength.
