Commitments

BIBS’ work with environmental, social, and governance is focused on our entire supply chain – all from creating sustainable designs, using sustainable raw materials in our products, reducing the CO2 emission in our production to using recycled materials in our packaging and much more. Read more about our various commitments below.

Environmentally friendly materials

We are constantly exploring new materials and treatments that are bothsafe, durable, and environmentally friendly.

Recycling of waste

We have taken many steps to ensure that our products become increasingly sustainable, for example by increasing reuse and recycling. All the PP waste from our production is sent to the Danish company AVL, which is the largest
company regarding recycling of high-quality plastic in the North.

Responsible packaging and store displays

We have made many conscious choices regarding our packaging and the materials used. Read a detailed review of the different materials we use in our packaging and store displays here

Transparency

At BIBS transparency means sharing relevant information about our supply
chain, products, standards, and policies. That way our customers and partners
always know how and where our products are made, and how we work. We believe
that transparency creates comparability and accountability both for customers
to make more informed purchasing decisions and for companies across industries
to improve their sustainability performance themselves.

 

New technology

All our products made in plastic are produced at our production factory
in Hillerød, Denmark where we use the latest technology and production line.
Our focus is on energy-saving equipment, manufacturing robots, and automation
systems. We wish to ensure our quality assurance is even better in the future.
Therefore, we are currently implementing Schur®Octopus – a software solution
that automates the process of ensuring the right data is applied to the right
product. Schur®Octopus makes it possible for us to trace all the different
components of a finished product back to the raw material we use on the
machines. This way we will have absolute control over our quality assurance in
all phases of our production line.

 

Renewable energy

We are on a journey to become fully supplied by renewable energy in our
own and external production facilities. We have started our journey and in 2020
we teamed up with the Danish company Ørsted to optimize our production and move towards a greener production line. Now all the electricity that we use to
produce our products, made in our production facilities in Denmark, is covered
with certificates from renewable energy production from European wind turbines.
This is one of our investments in cleaner production. We are very aware that
these certificates are not the solution to ending greenhouse gas emissions. But
at BIBS, we want to take an active part in green growth, and with this
agreement, we are committed to supporting sustainable development.

 

Sustainable purchasing policy

We only work with factories that live up to our ethical standards for
working conditions. When choosing suppliers and we want to go the extra mile to
find the right ones. We always make sure to select the best suppliers who must
comply with our high standards. For all our products we only use suppliers that
are working with sustainable production to minimize chemical use and maintain a
fair working environment for all employees.

 

Transportation

We mainly use DSV to transport our products around the world from our
production machine to our customer’s doorstep. We have chosen DSV because it
can meet our requirements and desires to reduce our climate footprint. DSV
works continuously on reducing the environmental impact of the company’s
operations. One of the primary impacts stems from the air pollution from the
company’s road transport. As a result of DSV’s focus on purchasing new trucks,
better utilization of equipment and fuel*. To minimize our carbon footprint, we
always seek to ship our products overseas by ship.
