NA-KD announces climate compensation for all customer deliveries and returns, with immediate effect from 5 November 2019
Gothenburg, 6 November 2019 - NA-KD has recently accelerated its commitment to making the disruptive changes needed to build sustainability and circularity deeply into its business model. Now, they have announced a brand new initiative: to climate compensate all outbound customer deliveries and returns, with immediate effect.
Founded 4 years ago, NA-KD is a fast growing company with an estimated annual net of €120-130 million and continuously improved operational results. The growth has been propelled by a number of successful new collaborations, launches of local sites and popular pop-up stores around Europe.
Over the last few months, NA-KD has been ramping up its commitment to greener, more sustainable e-commerce. The brand has been rolling out a wide range of activities: sustainable collections with influencers, improved recycled materials for packaging and reduced freight forwarding. Now, NA-KD are rolling out a carbon offsetting scheme to continue this commitment.
NA-KD will be working with Tricorona Climate Partner (TCP), experts in the climate compensation space. TCP will assist NA-KD in evaluating the environmental impact of the brand’s millions of orders, and then help calculate the value of the required carbon dioxide offset. Based on these climate calculations, NA-KD will compensate total emissions from deliveries and returns ton by ton. TCP will be managing NA-KD’s climate compensation investments.
From today onwards, the carbon emission from NA-KD’s deliveries and returns will be 100% offset, at no extra cost to the customer. No matter what shipping method customers use NA-KD will climate compensate, thus creating a frictionless solution that is good for customers and the environment.
