Sustainability at Budbee
Our focus on sustainability is not just some PR manoeuvre; it is a long-term investment for the future. For our sake, our consumer's sake, and the planet's sake. We are always looking for ways to improve our business with new and innovative solutions, and we are prepared to endure higher costs to enable improvements that benefit sustainability in the long run.
Whether offering our courier partners discounted HVO100, investing in solar panels, utilising our technical expertise to optimise routes and fill rates, or collaborating with cargo bike couriers. Making sure that we have a safe and rewarding working environment for our employees and the drivers employed by couriers is crucial and a part of our long-term commitment to being a sustainable company.
