Optimal Buying Decisions

At Icecat, we’re dedicated to fostering sustainable consumption practices by facilitating informed decision-making for online shoppers. We collaborate with e-commerce businesses to ensure consumers have access to complete and accurate product information. We strive to promote optimal purchasing decisions that align with sustainability principles by empowering shoppers with the knowledge they need.

We strive to support online businesses in delivering complete and optimized product information that helps online shoppers make well-informed buying decisions, and therefore, we help reduce returns.

The Icecat taxonomy is designed to make it easy for consumers to learn about the environmental impact of the goods they view online. We support various sustainability labels and certifications, including category and region-specific ones. This way, we empower online shoppers to make responsible choices.

Our product content also contains precise information about product and packaging sizing, which is crucial for optimizing storage and transporting products. By providing this information, we help businesses reduce waste and energy consumption in their logistics operations, thereby lowering the environmental impact.


Reducing Footprint & Maximizing Impact

We are closely examining our footprint and the impact we have throughout our value chain to identify opportunities for enhancing our sustainability. For instance, our office in Nieuwegein, Netherlands, is climate-neutral, achieved through sustainable data centers, a fleet of zero-emission lease cars, and company bikes.

At our office building in Nieuwegein, we have installed solar panels on the rooftop in an effort to promote sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint. By harnessing the power of the sun, we are able to generate clean and renewable energy for our building’s daily operations. This not only helps us save on energy costs but also contributes to a greener and more eco-friendly environment for the community.

Our employees use Tesla’s superchargers and other power stations when driving to meet our customers. This helps us reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and minimize our environmental impact.

Furthermore, we strongly recommend that employees who live closer to our offices use alternative modes of transportation, such as our company bikes or public transport, for their daily commute. This not only helps to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution but also promotes a healthier lifestyle among our employees.
