For more than 20 years, Onedirect has stepped up its CSR initiatives by continually improving its CSR approach
Sale of refurbished products and recycling of used products
Over 2021, Onedirect sold more than 10,000 units of refurbished products. These purchases resulted in a saving of 41,674 kg of CO2 according to the carbon footprint method developed by the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME). We also buy our customers' used fleets, in order to recycle or refurbish them to return them to the market and thereby have a circular economy.
Our catalogues are printed on PEFC certified paper. The PEFC label guarantees the consumer that the product they are buying is from responsible sources and that through their purchase they are participating in the sustainable management of forests. Managing a forest sustainably means taking into account its environmental, social and economic dimensions. This is a mission that PEFC accomplishes every day as the guardian of the forest balance.
Our catalogues are packed in a Home Compost protective film. You can integrate it with your bio-waste, i.e. kitchen waste or green waste. It can also be industrially composted and thus transformed into natural fertilizer.
Finally, our catalogues can still be consulted and downloaded online, if you no longer wish to receive the paper format.
Our cardboard packaging is manufactured within 200km of our warehouses by a company following circular economy principles, integrating sustainable development into each fibre. Their closed-loop model begins with 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials.
The producer responsibility and paper recycling approach means that 75% of the raw materials are recycled fibre – more than any other packaging material. These boxes are FSC-C089432.
The social aspect is a key element for our organisation, we want to be a human-scale SME where the well-being and development of each employee is essential.
Discrimination is a practice that Onedirect cannot tolerate within the organisation for any reason. Each employee is evaluated on the basis of the tasks and objectives entrusted to them. Onedirect wants to be an organisation that promotes diversity in order to ensure sharing, collective intelligence and performance. Year after year, we tend to develop talent within our organisation based on the skills of each employee. The workplace equality index is also representative of our commitment to the issue.
Since 2017, HR reporting has been in place to track various performance indicators. Annual performance meetings are also carried out in order to monitor the evolution of each individual and the degree of development of each employee in the functions performed. Managers work closely with the Human Resources department in order to reflect on actions to limit absenteeism (workload, well-being, involvement, etc.)
Recently and with the development of ODaaS (Onedirect as a service), Onedirect offers an alternative to the own purchase of hardware through various offerings allowing the rental of videoconferencing rooms. This alternative is intended to be better for the environment. Indeed, each rental item offered therefore benefits from a second life thanks to refurbishment. The refurbished products are then used for association equipment. This offering aims to end obsolescence through scheduled regular updates of equipment and proactive monitoring to enable early detection of end-of-life or potential accidents.
