Duffle&Co are the second company in New Zealand to acquire this status, transparently proving they have measured and offset 120% of their carbon footprint for their entire Business Operations for the 2018 financial year.

Duffle&Co is driven by impact and believe it should be a core part of every sustainable business. With the changing consumer mindset we now know that 66% of global consumers are willing to pay more for goods from companies that are committed to sustainability.

Danny Pritchard, Co Founder of Duffle&Co says “We feel uneasy about our future, particularly when it comes to the depletion of natural resources. With this certification we want to show that it IS possible to use a business model to create positive environmental and social change. We hope that other business and consumers alike will feel inspired and also make actionable changes to reduce their footprint on the planet.”

They believe in a world where producing products that benefit people and the planet is the expectation not the exception.
