We are always looking at how we can improve our impact by giving back.
At BUDDY BUDDY, we believe that our success as a company goes hand-in-hand with our responsibility to contribute to the well-being of society and the environment. That's why we're dedicated to conducting our business in a socially responsible and sustainable manner.
We don't claim to be perfect and are always striving to improve, but here are a few of the ways we're making a positive impact:
- Sustainable sourcing - We source our ingredients from local and organic farms, which not only supports local communities, but also ensures that our products are made with high-quality, environmentally-friendly ingredients.
- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - We're committed to reducing waste and minimizing our environmental footprint. That's why we use recycled and biodegradable packaging materials wherever possible.
- Community Involvement - We believe that it's important to give back to the communities we serve. That's why we partner with local organizations and charities to help make a positive difference in people's lives: WWF (we donate €0,10 per jar returned to us to WWF), Rainbow House Brussels, Sea Shepherd, Amazon Watch, Cool Earth and Stonewall UK.
- Employee Well-Being - Our employees are at the heart of our company, and we believe that it's important to take care of their well-being. That's why we offer flexible work arrangements, opportunities for professional development, and a supportive work environment.
By incorporating these practices into our daily operations, we're working to make a positive impact on the world and create a better future for all.
We believe in giving back and are proud of our internal volunteering program. In addition to volunteering as a team at Help Animals, we encourage all our team members to volunteer at a charity of their choice one full day every year, paid like a normal workday.
We are commited to serving at least 75% local and independent clients or customers on a revenue basis. This includes revenue made by sales in our Brussels café, on our webshop and to our B2B partners.
By ‘local’ we mean being part of the same community. Geographically, this means being local to the city of Brussels or its surrounding vicinities lying within the radius of 80 km.
