Breuninger and environment
In order to provide our customers with the product range and shopping experience they wish for – both in-store and online – we need resources. The focus here is on our energy consumption, the waste we produce, and the emissions generated by our buildings and by logistics and transport. We take climate protection seriously and are therefore constantly working to reduce our harmful impact and hence to contribute to a healthier environment.
To reduce our CO2 emissions in the medium and long term and to conserve natural resources, we are continuously looking for new opportunities. When it comes to reducing CO2 emissions, our main focus is on the areas where we can exert the greatest influence: our transport and properties. We have set ourselves the goal of making online orders and internal transport carbon neutral over the next few years. In order to save resources and avoid waste in a targeted way, we aim to eliminate the use of plastic in our procurement processes wherever possible. By eliminating polybags – the pressure-sealed bags used throughout the garment industry to ship clothing – and avoiding single-use plastic, we are committed to making many of our processes plastic-free.
