The 17 SDGs with goal 12 as a starting point for BuyBay
The United Nations formulated 17 SDGs. The 12th goal of the SDGs addresses BuyBay’s core business: ‘Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns’.
In particular, we address the following aspects of goal 12:
12.5 Significantly reduce waste by 2030 through prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse.
12.6 Encouraging companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.
These sub goals are in line with our vision:
“We will live in a world with a zero-waste economy, where all e-commerce products are used and all organizations contribute their share to a sustainable, waste-free, world.”
Responsible consumption and production
Being an important player in e-commerce, inevitably means dealing with returns and obsolete stock. We take the responsibility to help these parties managing returns sustainably and focus on the huge challenges that are connected to returns, trying to prevent waste by giving returns a second life. We do this by providing innovative solutions for both returns and overstock management, helping large retailers, brands and distributors with their challenges, with every step that is involved on the way.
We look forward to actively promote the SDG goals and work towards a more sustainable world, together with our partners!
