The online retailer Zalando wants to operate carbon neutrally in the future, both at their locations and in shipping. Additionally, Zalando will encourage its manufacturers and customers to act more environmetally responsible. CO2OL will accompany Zalando along this pathway.
The commitment to become carbon neutral is embedded in a comprehensive sustainability and climate action strategy: the power supply at all company locations is being successively converted; 90 percent already come from renewable sources; emission that cannot be avoided are offset. Waste should be minimized and materials reused. And the use of disposable plastic is abolished. A core issue at Zalando is to implement a circular economy infrastructure. Through recycling, second-hand trading and improved product quality, millions of clothes will be used for much longer.
Unavoidable emissions are offset by high-quality climate protection projects. Zalando supports reforestation projects such as the Sodo/Humbo Community Reforestation Project in Ethiopia.
