Sustainable products

Our products are the very core of our business. We want to offer our customers useful, fun and inspiring products at affordable prices. We want our products to be safe and therefore take significant measures to ensure that all items have been produced under humane and responsible conditions in respect of international social, environmental and ethical standards.

As a globally operating retailer, we have a responsibility for our impact on the planet throughout the value chain. Our Environmental policy expresses our commitment to protect the environment and the climate by minimising our impact. A significant part of our impact derives from production in our supply chain. Consequently, our Supplier Code of Conduct further specifies our requirements for the environmental awareness and conduct of our suppliers.

Apart from seeking to minimise impact in the supply chain, we focus our resources where Flying Tiger Copenhagen, as a retailer, has the highest impact. This includes choosing more eco-conscious materials for our products, using less plastic throughout our value chain, sourcing sustainable forestry products, minimising packaging, reducing energy consumption in stores and offices and minimising food- and other product waste via donations.

Sustainable stores

We want our stores to be eco-conscious. This includes:

Cabinets and boxes: Made in pallets sizes for optimal transportation. Made from wood from sustainable forestry (FSC). Painted with water-based paints. Cabinets, boxes and fixtures: made from 100% recyclable wood and metals (steel and aluminum).

Lights: 100% LED lights – low on emission and heat, which also means using less aircondition.

Shopping bags: made from primarily recycled plastic.

Shopping baskets: made from 100% recyclable plastic.

How we define eco-conscious

We classify eco-conscious as:

  • Made from FSC-certified wood/paper material (min 95%)
  • Made from recycled material (min. 80%)
  • Made from renewable material (min. 95%)
  • Made from easily recyclable materials (glass, aluminium, steel, or iron products with content >= 95%)
  • A mix of the above (individually assessed by the sustainability department)
