- Electro mobiles with no harmful emissions
Speedy believes that the future of transporting people and freight is electro mobiles because of the low cost and the benefit of clean environment. Buying 18 Renault Kangoo Z.E. electro mobiles in the end of 2013 made Speedy one of the first companies in Europe that made such an important investment. During 2014 Speedy’s electro mobiles made a modest contribution to improving the environment in the city by saving 11.5 tons of bad emissions. In 2014 the company became a member of the Green Circle of Manager Magazine, whose aim is to unite socially responsible companies in the field of environmental protection.
- Bio-degradeable packaging
The packaging Speedy is offering is made of Epi Global’s polydergalax, which is substance that is added to the plastic in order to make it digest faster. During the production process no harmful or toxic substances were used. Our envelopes could be recycled or used multiple times. The material is digested in a very short period which is shorter than the normal time of digesting a plastic bag. Using this material we are keeping the quality and security of our clients’ shipments and at the same time we are reducing the pollution. Having in mind the constant growth of our business taking this step would make Speedy more environmental-friendly.
- Recycling Paper and the Paperless Solution
Since the summer of 2014 the company’s bulletin Speedy Press is being printed on 100% recycled paper, CYCLUSPRINT. The bulletin is issued every month and gives information to our clients and employees about the new events, services and projects concerning the business environment. In the departments, where our employees work with huge amounts of documentation printed on paper, we have developed a solution of managing the working process using electronic materials rather than printing them on paper. This significantly decreased the usage of printing materials. In the beginning of the year Speedy developed Speedygoesgreen.bg where all the eco and social campaigns of the company are put together. This portal gives the users valuable advice on how to live healthy and environmental-friendly lifestyle.
