What is a Sustainable Business?
“A sustainable business is any organisation that participates in environmentally friendly or green activities to ensure that all processes, products, and manufacturing activities adequately address current environmental concerns while maintaining a profit.”
Here at KDD we take sustainability seriously, having a strong environment focus is very important to us and we are continually reviewing and updating our environmental and sustainability policies and processes.
We work hard to minimise our carbon footprint, for example by using natural, renewable resources such as our natural cotton and by recycling 100% of our waste and packaging materials. But hey nobody is perfect, we are only human and inevitably every business has some impact on the environment. For example whilst we ship as much as possible by sea, but occasionally we may have to ship some goods by air, although we try to limit this as much as we can.
We continue to make improvements and work towards achieving our goal of becoming a truly sustainable business. We will be undertaking the Green Start Initiative, with the support of Enterprise Ireland in the coming months.
At KDD we are committed to developing our products, processes through investment in people and innovation. Above all else we are committed to Continuous Improvement in everything that we do.
