Multichannel fulfilment expert and Gold patron of Blackburn and Darwen Youth Zone, Staci, take the children and young people’s charity on a tree planting expedition. Staci partnered with Forestry England to give the children of Blackburn and Darwen Youth Zone a break from city life, and teach them the value of sustainability and conservation in the breath-taking Gisburn Forest.

The ash trees in Gisburn forest are sadly suffering from Ash Dieback – a fungal disease which kills trees. The children helped replace these trees with aspen trees, which can live for up to one hundred years, and remove approximately one tonne of CO2 from the environment in their lifetime.

As well as the children of Blackburn and Darwen Youth Zone gaining fond and lifelong memories of planting trees with their friends, they have also made an outstanding contribution to the environment by planting 60 aspen trees, therefore removing 60 tonnes of CO2 from the environment.

Thank you to the wonderful Forestry England, for helping us to bring this initiative to life, and of course thank you to the fantastic team of staff and children at Blackburn and Darwen Youth Zone for coming together to help the environment.

Global multichannel fulfilment expert Staci is pleased to announce the launch of its annual carbon calculation initiative in the UK.

As an international logistics and fulfilment partner to some of the worlds best loved brands across 9 countries and 3 continents, delivering a strong ESG performance is vital to the Staci business and Team Members.

With an aim of becoming Net Zero by 2050, Staci has invested in a comprehensive carbon analysis to provide a detailed picture of the carbon impact attributed to Staci’s operations on behalf of our UK clients. For many years Staci has reported on our carbon emissions, however this new initiative goes further and deeper than ever before, whilst also resulting in an SBTi verified action plan for the years ahead in our aim to achieve our Net Zero target.

Steven Shorrock, ESG lead for the UK said, “Staci globally has a huge commitment to sustainability – the group outlook for the years ahead in terms of ESG performance is really exciting, and we’re looking forward to delivering this in the UK, too. Our carbon analysis project will build on the foundations of the commitment to our local and global communities we’ve had for many years, and help take Staci and our clients to the next level in terms of data, analysis, intelligence – and overall results – on everything ESG.”

“From transition to green energy, investment in EV, significant charitable investments, sustainable packaging analysis, tree-planting, carbon offsetting and growing biodiversity initiatives, Staci will always be dedicated to doing the right things for the right reasons that generate real ESG improvement”

Staci, Europe’s leading multichannel logistics expert, has donated £25,000 to Blackburn & Darwen Youth Zone, a charity dedicated to improving the lives and opportunities of young people in the local area.

Staci is an international multichannel logistics expert with over 70 fulfilment centres in 8 countries, delivering over 15 billion items each year across the cosmetics, FMCG, technology and retail sectors.

As an international Group 🌍 present in 8 countries, Staci must respect the rules of the countries where it operates, its communities and its environment. Appropriate ethical behaviour is a fundamental prerequisite for a healthy and efficient daily business environment.

➡️ We have developed our Code of Conduct to clearly state and respect our commitments as a company, an employer and a good corporate citizen on a daily basis. It is an essential tool to guide our choices in order to put our values and commitments into practice. ⬅️

Intended for all our employees, this guide is intended to help describe our position on :
🔹 The protection and use of the company’s assets
🔹 The fight against corruption, conflicts of interest, anti-competitive practices

🎯 Today, only companies with a strong ethical culture will be sustainable, which is why we want 100% of our employees to be trained in this approach by 2025.
