Community & Leadership

Lowering our environmental impact

Having now ticked over our one year anniversary, we are delighted to announce that Mercedes me Melbourne has achieved carboNZeroCertTM certification, an internationally recognized carbon neutral accreditation in compliance with ISO 14064-1.

Here at Mercedes me we are committed to lowering our environmental impact in store and the certification continues our approach towards community leadership and shining a light on important topics.

Residing in Melbourne, a C40 city, we’re also passionate about supporting the city’s global climate leadership efforts.

Since launching in November 2017, Mercedes me has garnered a reputation as a hub of creativity hosting 80+ events, many with a focus on sustainability including:

  • In conversation evenings in partnership with The Design Files, such as with eco champion Joost Bakker and Jeremy McLeod from Breathe Architecture
  • NGV evening with artist Brodie Neill, whose Flotsam bench – made from ocean plastic – is on display in store each day
  • The Plant Society, in conversation and week long pop-up shop. All the beautiful greenery at Mercedes me is also provided and cared for by Jason Chongue and his team.

Of course, we also love great coffee and serving you the best in town each day. Make sure you bring your own reusable cup next time you’re in store for 50c discount on every takeaway order.

This year, we look forward to enhancing our sustainability efforts further through more events and activations with the industry’s thought leaders and most innovative talents, as well as commencing a comprehensive waste reduction strategy.
