Creating a safe and fulfilling workplace

Our unique business proposition and culture of creativity are key to attracting talent, but we also invest in providing an inclusive, fair, safe and dynamic working environment where teams across our value chain can thrive.

For our teams we maintain a strong focus on mental and physical health and well-being, particularly as working practices change through and beyond the pandemic. We are also committed to promoting individual growth and development while ensuring a fair working environment. For our warehouse teams, we maintain a strategic focus on safety in line with our target of avoiding work-related accidents.

We are equally concerned about safe and fair working conditions throughout our supply base. We have already started to evaluate our Westwing Collection suppliers against key standards on workers’ health, safety, dignity and fair wages and will continue to work towards enhancing the overall consideration of workers’ rights and satisfaction.

Taking climate action

We’ve started our journey of addressing our climate impacts by calculating our group-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In 2021, we achieved climate neutrality in our core business operations through offsetting 6,906 tons of CO2 equivalents and opted for renewable energy supplies for our offices in Germany, Poland and the Netherlands.

As our focus is on avoiding and reducing our emissions, understanding our carbon footprint will help us in setting science-based emission reduction targets based on the guidelines of the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) by the end of 2023. We will also continue to switch to renewable energy sources across our facilities and will be opening an energy and resource-efficient warehouse in Poland.
