Every day we move a few steps in the right direction. Over the next few years we will be investing in having a greater impact, reduce our CO2 output and expand our collaboration with green partners. We have also set ourselves the following goals for the next few years:
2022: The first 1BOX wood
Trees are one of the best instruments for fixing and storing CO2. The stored CO2 is only released when the tree is felled or burned. This is why planting trees is a good way to reduce the quantity of CO2 in the air. Planting a wood also helps to improve the biodiversity, which maintains the habitats for people and animals.
2025: Completely paper-free operations
On average we produce about 59 kilos of paper and cardboard per person per year. Of this 79% is separated for collection so that it can be recycled. Although a relatively high percentage is recycled, the quantity of paper and cardboard that we produce each year is still very high. This is why we at 1BOX set ourselves the goal of operating completely paper-free in 2025. This will include creating contracts online, and sharing all our information digitally.
2030: Be completely energy neutral
The use of fossil fuels has a major impact on the environment. This creates a higher concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, pollutes water and also is the cause of other negative consequences, such as earthquakes. By 2030, 1BOX wants to not make any use of fossil fuels, instead generating its own energy using renewable sources of energy such as solar power. In order to achieve this we are installing solar panels on the roofs of our branches.
Of course sustainability is more than the environment alone. At 1BOX we are trying to do all that we can to create an open and inclusive working environment that is a great place to work for people of all origins, faiths or sexual orientations.
