for a sustainable future
Reducing our collective impact on the environment is at the core of our business. For years, RELEX has helped retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers reduce waste through forecast and inventory optimization.
We also want to practice what we preach – and we’re proud to say that as of 2021, we are a carbon-neutral company.
Key environmental figures
Key figures explained
By optimizing end-to-end inventory management for fresh food products, we’re cutting food waste by up to 40%. Across our customer base, that means we prevent 11M+ kilograms of food waste each year.
Stopping 11M+ kgs of food waste is the same as stopping 35,000+ tons of CO2 equivalents. Put another way, our annual carbon handprint has the same impact as planting 1.5 million trees to remove CO2 from the air.
With a 2022 carbon footprint of 3800 tons of CO2 equivalents and a handprint of 35,000+ tons, our net carbon impact is over 9x. For every CO2 unit we emit, we stop 9 units from hitting our atmosphere!
