Corporate Social Responsibility

DUNI CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)

CREATING GOODFOODMOOD WITH CARE

“Duni’s corporate social responsibility is part of our core business – we believe in paving the way in responsible operations and delivering goodfoodmood® throughout.

Duni products should create good feelings. Only products made with respect for society and the environment we operate in will create that right atmosphere.

Responsible business decisions are what make us accountable. Our Blue Mission is the programme platform for Duni Corporate Social Responsibility, setting targets and ways of working until 2020. We invite you to share our journey on creating goodfoodmood with care. ”

2016 CSR Survey

Eyes on the horizon

Committed to staying one step ahead, we commissioned a new CSR survey in 2016. The respondents were key decision-makers, mainly working for full-service restaurants, hotels and wholesalers, in Germany, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and UK.

Key findings: the number of our customers who feel well-informed about our CSR work, and feel it is of a high-standard, is growing. Quality and design remain the most important factors for choosing our products – while 30% have chosen a Duni product for its environmental profile.

“With the CSR survey, we made a donation to the Red Cross for every completed interview. In total, we raised €2,500.”
Elisabeth Gierow CSR & Quality Director

ecoecho®

A lifecycle less ordinary

Our ecoecho® range reflects our desire to be outstanding – and first – in our market, our goodfoodmood brand essence and Our Blue Mission.

The range offers some of the most outstanding – if not the best – solutions in the market for sustainability, quality and style.

To qualify as ecoecho®, a product must meet a high standard: a significant part of it must fulfil at least two of these environmental standards: Resource Efficiency, Renewability, Compostability and Responsible Sourcing.

360 DEGREE THINKING

The lifecycle of a duni product

The life of a Duni product starts with the choice of material. We prefer renewable raw materials from trees and plants, which are responsibly grown and sourced. Leftover materials such as sugarcane fibres or recycled plastics are also a great way to upcycle and save resources.

Conscious convenience is a good reason to choose and use Duni products. We work hard to ensure good working conditions and limited environmental impact at our own, and our suppliers’, manufacturing sites.

At the end of their life, Duni products should be recycled, composted or burned to generate energy. Littering is never an alternative and landfill should be avoided. We strive to enable good waste handling alternatives of our products.

our mission to reduce emissions

Everyday we work hard to keep reducing our environmental impact. Our goals are focused on energy- overall reduction and fossil free production. More about our targets and environmental footprint may be found in Our Blue Mission report.

NApkin production

Blue mission at work

Achieving our goal of making our tissue production fossil free means we have to do many things. One is to focus on the table covers and napkins that account for much of our production. These are mainly produced at our four sites in Europe.

For instance, the steam we use to dry napkins at our production facility in Skåpafors is produced in our bio-boiler, which burns renewable resources such as forestry waste. That way the net emissions of fossil greenhouse gases are very low.

Making dreams come true

My big day

We are proud to support Min Stora Dag – ‘My Big Day’. The organisation is a fantastic Swedish NGO that make dreams come true for youngsters with serious illnesses and diagnoses. This empowers the children and boosts their self-esteem.

Many of the youngsters have always wanted to work a professional chef. As we are all about goodfoodmood, that is something we are well-placed to help with. So far, we have organised cooking competitions overseen by previous winners of Chef of the Year, as well as innovative cooking classes. They were great success!

Supplier collaboration

Shared Responsibility

We work very closely with our suppliers to ensure they meet the highest standards – and, in doing so, keep the promises we make. They are all audited regulary to ensure they uphold sustainable values, follow our stringent Supplier Code of Conduct and comply with all the relevant EU regulations.

product safety

investing in safety

Ensuring safety is paramount for us at Duni. As a leading supplier of candles, we take part in the important work of establishing European standards for quality and safety. But that’s just one example of the many initiatives we are involved in.

We also rigorously test all our products to ensure they meet our own strict safety requirements, as well as the relevant standards. In doing so, we work with a number of independent external partners, as well as carrying out internal testing programmes.

Our talent management programme

Employees dunited

An insightful approach to the environment and people is the essence of the Duni brand. Through a culture that promotes development and job satisfaction, we attract and retain our employees. At Duni we are convinced that a prosperous organization is a prerequisite for achieving both business and environmental goals. Our employees are the most important resource in this regard.

The Swan Nordic Ecolabel is one of the most well-known Ecolabels in the world. It guarantees products have fulfilled stringent environmental and climate criteria.

The OK compost label confirms products or packaging are in compliance with EN 13432, the European standard for compostability in industrial composting installations.

Duni is an FSC®-certified company, meaning the great majority of our tissue-based products come from wood fibres sourced from responsibly managed FSC®-certified forests.

Our pulp is also bleached in either TCF (Totally chlorine free) or ECF (Elementary Chlorine Free) processes.
