About the report

The calculation of the savings in greenhouse gas emissions and material from Schibsted’s ten participating marketplaces have been developed in close collaboration with The Swedish Environmental Research Institute, IVL. The results have been extracted by collecting and processing the 2017 sales numbers from the marketplaces and processing customer surveys together with total energy consumption for the ten marketplaces.

The work has been driven by a fundamental question:

How much material and emissions can potentially be saved annually through second-hand trade, if each second-hand product replaces the production of a new one?
