As the largest DIY chain in the Benelux, Maxeda DIY Group feels responsible for the continuity of natural raw materials and the working conditions in factories where products for Maxeda are made. The aim is for as much of the wood and wood-containing products as possible to be certified, and Maxeda is a member of both FSC Netherlands and Belgium. Also, one of the requirements for suppliers is to provide documented proof that the factories where Maxeda products are made meet minimum requirements and Maxeda is a member of amfori BSCI.
The stores also offer organic or ecologically responsible products as an alternative to standard products. For example, biological resources are used, natural ingredients form the basis of the product, are the products biodegradable or the choice of packaging is taken into account. Other sustainable options are the many water-saving products in the range, one battery that can be used for all kinds of power tools and the wide range of insulation-related products.
In addition, the stores offer customers the opportunity to become more sustainable through services. For example, by extending the life of equipment by offering maintenance, an equipment rental service and by providing advice and products that can save energy or water.
