Founders of secrid
Our holistic approach
Everything is connected. Hence we take care of all aspects to create a better future.
Producing locally. All Secrid products are 100% made in Europe
All our products are assembled in social enterprises.
It is our ambition to keep distances within our supply chain as short as possible. In our local production policy, we have stated that we prefer suppliers who are closest to our assembly locations, as long as they can provide the quality and craftsmanship required to make products that can last as long as possible. As a result, some parts are produced in the Netherlands and others in Italy. By producing as locally as possible, we can keep transport distances to a minimum, which enables us to minimise the impact on the environment. It also allows us to guarantee the quality of our products, facilitates efficient collaboration with our partners, and lets us continue to support local businesses.
The relation with Our suppliers
Together with our suppliers we ensure that our products are consciously made in a responsible way, putting people and planet first. Because we believe that the best results are achieved by working together, we have created a Code of Conduct. Our Code of Conduct has been signed by all our suppliers, ensuring that our standards for People, Environment and Ethics are constantly met.
Our care for the environment
Companies play an important role in changing their industry in order to make the world a better place, little by little. That is why we think it is only natural that we should take responsibility for the impact we have on the world. In order to be able to take this responsibility, we first need to understand exactly where this impact lies.
We have been conducting impact analyses for several years in order to provide insight into the environmental footprint of our company, our supply chain and our products. Based on this information, we then developed a plan to take responsibility for our impact. This plan is based on the principles of prevention, measurement, compensation and reduction.
Through our design philosophy, sourcing and local production we are able to limit our impact even before the impact is created.
We measure the environmental footprint of our products from cradle to gate, meaning from raw material extraction to the moment that products are waiting to be shipped to their customers.
We take responsibility for the impact of our products by offsetting the carbon footprint in partnership with Fair Climate Fund. This way we balance emissions that cannot be eliminated.
We use lessons learned from our impact to create an effective strategy to reduce our impact.
From the start of Secrid in 2009 to 2021 we have released 3.251.223 kg CO2 eq. of greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions are be distributed over scopes 1, 2 and 3.
