It is also very user-friendly with its easy opening and recycling.

Boxon continuously measures the customer satisfaction. In 2021 our overall score was 4,2 of 5 and overall NPS was 21,5 in all our markets for the yearly customer satisfaction survey. Our overall score is 4,1 based on 412 reviews on Trustpilot. All our customer reviews on Trustpilot are transparent and in our processes, it is clearly stated that we answer all reviews.

In early 2021, Boxon implemented an updated Anti-Corruption policy as well as an updated Supplier Code of Conduct. All employees went through Anti-corruption policy training, and employees working with suppliers had training on how to apply- and work according to our Supplier Code of Conduct.

In 2021, no complaints or case of corruption was reported.
