We want to motivate as many people as possible to adopt a plant-based diet and treat our environment responsibly. We are convinced that every reduction in the consumption of animal products is an important step towards limiting global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celcius by the year 2100 – and we offer our consumers tasty and climate-friendly alternatives to help us achieve this aim. By doing so, we are creating a sustainable future for all life forms on our planet: good for you, better for everyone. Thus we want to give stakeholders – true to our motto „We Make Sustainability Visible“ – an insight into our sustainability efforts over the past fiscal years.
OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE SDGS
With our efforts to promote a plant-based diet, as well as our business model and corporate policies, we are actively contributing to the achievement of several of the United Nations’ SDGs:
SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
SDG 13: Climate Action
SDG 14: Life Below Water
SUSTAINABILITY AT VEGANZ IN THREE DIMENSIONS:
On the following sub-pages we report in detail how we live sustainability as a company: for our investors and clients, employees and business partners – and all other stakeholders that want to find out more about Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics at Veganz.
BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
As a provider of foodstuffs, we have a small direct environmental footprint compared to other players in the food value chain – nevertheless we report transparently about our CO2 footprint, the environmental impact of our products, our water and energy use and the way we handle packaging materials.
BETTER FOR SOCIETY
Besides the quality of our products the responsible handling of our supply chain is a main topic for us – and of course our employees, whose safety, health and satisfaction is particularly important to us.
BETTER CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
It’s important to us that we as a company ourselves fulfil the highest ethical standards – this is why we report transparently about our Code of Conduct, data safety and our supervisory board.
The non-financial key performance indicators (KPIs) we report are based on internationally recognised ESG criteria of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) for the Processed Foods sector and cross-sector core metrics of the World Economic Forum (WEF) from the WEF white paper ‘Measuring Stakeholder Capitalism’.
