Sustainability


Batteries and lighting… To Elfa this is core business. But that does not necessarily make it the most important. That is something Elfa realises like no other. The company feels the responsibility to contribute to a healthy living environment for the generations to come.

 

 

Elfa energy neutral

Thinking of the environment starts within the product supply at Elfa: we always look through a sustainable lens. But also in logistics and the packaging of items Elfa chooses the most sustainable path both literally and figuratively. Furthermore, the roof of our headquarters in Amsterdam has been covered with solar panels for a number of years now. Our solar panels have already generated more than 38 megawatt hours this year! The CO2 saved is equivalent to planting 687 trees. Thanks to this, the building is 100% energy neutral today. In the overview below you can see how much energy Elfa has saved this year thanks to the solar panels. Elfa’s sustainable entrepreneurship is underlined by the ISO 14001 certification.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Elfa has good intentions with the ‘Planet’ without forgetting the ‘People’ component. Elfa continuously invests in the development of its own employees. But that is not all. Through charitable organisations Elfa tries to let others share in its success as well. In its own way, Elfa offers help both close to home and far away. This ranges from a one-off gift to the local animal ambulance to structural support of the Salvation Army, Doctors without Frontiers and Oxfam Novib. Pieter Schutte: ‘In general, we’d rather not openly display our support. We notice, however, that our choices also inspire other companies to start supporting a charity’.
