Working with people working with nature
For CRANBOURN® CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is vitally important to who we are as a company and how we operate. Our policies ensure that we adhere rigorously to the highest standards in ethical behaviour, environmental sustainability, data security and more.
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.
With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves.
CRANBOURN® is committed to donating 10% of annual (net) profits to charitable causes. Our Customer partners are additionally provided with the opportunity to further support our charities through CRANBOURN®’s regular cause related campaigns. Whilst CRANBOURN® wishes to support as many worthwhile charitable causes as we possibly can, our limited resources mean that our principal focus is with the following organisations:
- WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation.
- CRISIS is a UK National charity for ending homelessness.
- TREES FOR CITIES is a UK charity working at a National and International scale to improve lives by planting trees in cities. With TREES FOR CITIES we are actively working together on a carbon offset programme to negate the impact of our business, including customer deliveries, on the environment.
Carbon offsets allow a company that emits greenhouse gases to buy credits from a green project that is reducing carbon in the atmosphere. Carbon offsets can be viewed as an indirect way to reduce carbon emissions because the offset buyer is not making outright reductions in fossil fuel burning.
Even though CRANBOURN® does not directly control the shipping and transportation processes, the company feels responsible for it because it has helped enable it. CRANBOURN® wishes for consumers to better understand what responsible e-commerce should look like.
CRANBOURN® offers its customers the additional possibility to double their carbon offset within the payment section should they wish.
CRANBOURN® grew out of the idea that there was now another way. Exploring and discovering the very best products and bringing them to discerning customers.
