In August 2018 Ethical Consumer received a questionnaire from Veopolis. It stated "As above our Policy towards environmental impact is to ensure that we operate with 100% renewable energy, 100% compostable packaging for shipping goods (zero plastic), a ban on microbeads, no palm oil policy, and consider working only with suppliers who uphold the same considerations and environmental policies. We also choose our vendors who are actively reducing carbon emissions in their manufacturing process, limiting the carbon footprint of their product through it's carbon travel miles or offsetting their carbon emissions by investing in carbon reduction projects, credits or tree planting.
Whilst vendor products may not carry an 'official' organic accreditation, we ensure that they use only organic materials; which are free from non-natural pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and fertilisers."
The company stated that it only sold vegan products.
Ethical Consumer deemed Veopolis to be providing environmental alternatives due to the fact all its products were suitable for vegans. As a result it received Ethical Consumer's best rating for environmental reporting.

In August 2018 Ethical Consumer received a questionnaire from Veopolis. With regards to its timber sourcing policy it stated "For our vendors who manufacture and produce wooden goods and products there is a strong inclination towards both fairtrade, and often upcycled or recycled wood. One body we engage with on this is Manchester social enterprise Treestation for signposting vendors who require sustainable timber sourcing (like a vendor who designs homewares or furniture). We seek to confirm as much as possible of timber products are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and to follow guidance from the WWF’s Global Forest and Trade Network. Similarly to our palm oil policy we ensure responsibly sourced timber to reduce and mitigate environmental and social challenges relating to pollution, protection for vulnerable species, preventing habitat loss, and climate change. Timber sourced must come from forests which meet essential principles: to comply with all national & international legislation relating to the trade in forest products; conserve biological diversity; avoid the use of hazardous pesticides; and are not in areas of armed conflict or civil unrest where there is a direct relationship between the forest products trade and the funding of such conflicts."
Ethical Consumer considered this to be a positive policy.
