CO2-Neutral

Based on these results bol.com has set the goal to send 3,5 million articles without the recognizable bol.com box.
With the delivered analysis in hand, bol.com has set itself the goal of sending around 3.5 million items this year without the recognizable bol.com box. Is the cardboard box necessary for the protection of the item? Then it is packaged as responsibly as possible. Bol.com has also introduced a new shipping bag made from recycled plastic. The use of cardboard and filling material is also limited. With these initiatives Bol.com wants to reduce CO2 emissions per package to 0 grams by 2025.
