Peerby wants to stimulate people to share their items, for example a drill, backpack, skibox, … Things that you don’t use very often, and are therefore expensive.

By sharing, you help to save the planet’s resources, you save money and get to know the people around you!
The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.
13. Climate action
By signing the COP21 engagement letter, we commit to take voluntary action to reduce environmental and carbon footprints. We implement this by setting targets to reduce our current own GHG emissions and/or energy consumption, while also collaborating in supply chains and at sectorial levels. We agree on the need for inspirational and meaningful global action and aligned messaging. We will act as ambassadors for climate action, focusing on solutions and economic opportunities. We will help raise public awareness. We will actively manage climate risks and incorporate them in decision making — not least to realize growth opportunities. We will take steps to implement effective strategies to strengthen not only our companies’ but also societal resilience.
