Our vision is to be a leader in the sustainable space; consciously sourcing materials, hardware and packaging, drastically reducing harmful externalities and continuously analysing areas of the business that can be targeted for improvement. We’re actively subscribed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
We’re committed to offering style and quality in equal proportions to sustainability, ethical transparency and corporate integrity. Endeavouring to set a local and international standard based on attainable goals and a shared vision. We’re under no illusion that our commitment to the highest possible sustainable and ethical practices will be easy to achieve but will endeavour to incrementally change our current processes for the betterment of our industry, community and the world.
The United Nations has developed 17 goals that form the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. The goals address the biggest global challenges we are currently facing, including poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice.
Each goal consists of a transformative set of sustainability, economic, and social targets to achieve by 2030 and call on global and local actors – governments, private sector, civil society – to play their part. Our goal at ZANEROBE is to implement and adopt sustainable, positive and effective changes that align with these 17 goals.

For those that have donated by rounding up their online order total, we thank you. We’ve accumulated a total of $3,000 since adopting the initiative and intend to match this total before handing it over to “OneTreePlanted.org”. The total amount of $6,000 will see us planting 6,000 trees across Australia, USA and Canada in areas where either natural or human forces have destroyed much-needed vegetation. That brings ZANEROBE’s total tree-planting total to 18,200, a great effort so far. Why trees? They help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are key ingredients in 25% of all medicines. A mature tree can absorb on average 22lbs of carbon dioxide per year, so we like trees.

Black Friday / Cyber Monday was a massive event for us and ZANEROBE.com was ridiculously busy for close to two weeks. As promised, we have off-set all online supply-chain activities via DHL’s ‘Go Green’ carbon-neutral supply chain program. Your order was delivered with CO2e off-set, free of any emissions or negative externalities to the environment. And post the big sale season, we’ll continue to keep ZANEROBE online order deliveries carbon neutral, indefinitely.

Proud to announce we’ve teamed up with DHL – our exclusive delivery partner – to net-zero the ZANEROBE supply-chain C02 footprint. That’s approx 80% of our delivery activities, 100% carbon neutral; all zanerobe.com orders, development & sample packages, and general business freight. The DHL ‘Go Green’ initiative off-sets CO2e by reinvesting in positively sustainable energy projects such as wind energy, water filtration, hydro development, and alternative bio-gas source development. Be confident in the knowledge that by purchasing ZANEROBE product online, there’s minimal impact to our precious environment and resources. We’re well on the way to becoming 100% net-zero by 2030.
