Using our business for good on the beaches of Bali
Extreme weather events are increasing in frequency and intensity, impacting the lives and livelihoods of millions of people across the world. Rapid global warming has alarming consequences for human beings and all other forms of life on earth.
COP 27 reminds all of us to put climate action at the top of the agenda
As COP 27 - The United Nations Climate Change Conference – takes place in November 2022, the eyes and ears of the world turn once again to the future of our beautiful planet.
Many world leaders including UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, US President Joe Biden and France's Emmanuel Macron are expected to attend the UN event in Egypt. The goal is to drive multilateral, collective and concerted action to address the global threat of the climate crisis.
Tackling the climate crisis - we all have a part to play
A powerful force in the ongoing fight against climate change, The UN has set up 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), intended to be achieved by 2030. According to The UN, these goals are designed to be a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future".
Fullers Fulfilment is joining the fight to save the planet by supporting causes aligned with the SDGs, via the B1G1 initiative. Every month, as well as providing SME ecommerce fulfilment solutions, we donate to causes that strive to make the world a better place.
How Fullers is supporting Balinese marine conservation, waste management and permaculture
Indonesia is already witnessing the catastrophic effects of climate change. Decreased rainfall raises the risk of drought, adversely affecting agriculture, economic stability, and causing poverty and hunger.
Waste is also a huge problem in Indonesia. 130,000 tons of rubbish are produced annually, 50% of which is burned or illegally dumped (later flowing into the sea where it jeopardises the marine environment and the possibility of a sustainable future).
Fullers has recently chosen to support environmental issues in Bali through the B1G1 project. Our contribution supports regular beach clean ups and local community training in waste management, marine conservation, permaculture practices (sustainable agricultural ecosystems) and healthy living.
Making a difference from Indonesia to Madagascar – and beyond
Balinese beach clean ups are just one of many environmental projects that Fullers has helped happen in 2022. We have also donated to sustainable agriculture training programmes in Madagascar, as well as projects that reduce food waste in Singapore, provide lighting from renewable energy sources to rural communities in India, and nurture endangered species.
Our client portfolio includes many ethical brands with a strong focus on sustainability and fair trade. Making Fullers their fulfilment provider helps them achieve a more environmentally conscious supply chain; one that turns our collective business success into business for good and supports The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
To date, we have helped deliver 2,914 impacts to date across 17 SDGs – and we’ll keep going.
