At Adeo, to do our job well while limiting our impact on the environment, we explore every available avenue for improvement. Our goal is continuous improvement in all areas, from packaging and product design to transport and waste management. Because we all want to live in a more positive world.
Our mission: respond more effectively to inhabitants’ home-related needs
Our Product, Purchasing, Quality and Supply Chain teams work together to offer solutions co-developed with our customers, to more effectively meet all their expectations: high-quality products and services that are offered at affordable prices and have a positive impact on people and the planet. Our role is to serve as a platform between inhabitants and an industry with which we produce the private-label products that make us proud – products that are designed for and with the inhabitants who use them.
OUR POSITIVE PRODUCTS APPROACH
This is why making positive, more sustainable, responsible, alternatives to consumption (rental, repair, second-hand, etc.) solutions accessible represents the challenge of our Positive Products Approach, initiated in 2020 and which will have its first effects as of 2021.
The “Positive Products” approach is a part of the DNA in the construction of all of our offers. It is based on 5 criteria in order to improve the environmental footprint of our products and contribute to responsible consumption:
the product is made using responsible resources (natural or recycled)
the product is the result of production that respects men/women and the environment
the product is healthy and safe for people and not harmful to the planet, in particular its packaging
the product is made to last and can be repaired
the product provides environmental performance linked to use (energy savings, reduction in water consumption, etc.) 500 million customers per year worldwide contribute to the goal of reducing the carbon footprint thanks to external factors linked to the use of the solutions we develop
Adapting our supply chain
To meet our customers’ delivery needs while reducing our environmental impact, we’re adapting our supply chain into an omni-channel, data- and demand-driven supply chain and opting for cleaner modes of transport such as by river or sea. We’ve also undertaken not to transport any of our products by air and to speed up our use of transport solutions based on alternative energy sources, such as natural gas, electricity and hydrogen.
