Avoidance

Avoidance is a proactive approach to reducing emissions and waste. Rather than trying to mitigate the effects of emissions and waste after they have been created, avoidance seeks to prevent them from being created in the first place. This approach can be especially effective in reducing the environmental
impact of human activities.

Our avoidance measures

ISO 14001

ISO certification of time:matters GmbH and time:matters Netherlands B.V.

Implementation of an internationally recognized Environmental Management System with waste separation, energy-saving measures, reduced paper consumption and environmental KPI

LEDs at time:matters Courier Terminals

Less efficient light bulbs are being replaced with energy-saving LED. Due to better luminosity, fewer light sources will be needed.

Reusable ic:kurier bags

Bags used for carrying ic:kurier shipments are made of 20% recycled materials.

Eco-friendly Sameday bags

Bio-degradable, 100% compostable, light, and waterproof material

One way to avoid emissions is to use cleaner forms of energy. For example, instead of relying on fossil fuels like coal and oil, we can switch to renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. These renewable sources produce significantly fewer emissions, helping to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Another way to avoid emissions is to use more efficient technologies. For example, by using energyefficient appliances and vehicles, we can reduce the amount of energy required to power our daily lives. This can help to reduce the amount of emissions produced by these activities.

We can also avoid waste by reducing our consumption. This can be as simple as using reusable bags instead of single-use plastic bags, or by choosing to buy products with minimal packaging. By reducing the amount of waste we produce, we can help to preserve the environment and reduce the amount of pollution in our air and water.

In addition to individual actions, governments and businesses can also play a role in avoiding emissions and waste. For example, governments can implement policies that incentivize the use of renewable energy and support the development of cleaner technologies. Businesses can also take steps to reduce their emissions and waste, such as by implementing recycling programs or using more sustainable materials in their products.

Overall, avoidance is an important approach to reducing emissions and waste. By taking steps to prevent these environmental impacts from occurring in the first place, we can help to create a healthier and more sustainable world for future generations.
