We believe the promotion of social sustainability should lie at the heart of every organisation. We see employees as our most important resource. Change, adaption, innovation and development are only made possible through them. That is why we invest in our employees and encourage them to shape their careers within our group. We also attach the upmost importance to the highest labour standards, safety and health standards and clearly defined our approach and our goals in our Corporate Social Responsibility Policy.
All Jungbunzlauer production sites and offices adhere to a high standard of social responsibility. Jungbunzlauer provides a safe, healthy and hygienic workplace environment and takes effective steps to prevent potential accidents and injury to employees. A system has been established to detect, avoid or respond to potential threats to the health and safety of personnel. In the event of a work-related injury we provide first aid and assist the employee in obtaining follow-up medical treatment.
The health, safety and well-being of our employees are paramount to us because they reinforce our ability to compete on the global market and strengthen our performance for the benefit of the clients. Motivated and well-trained staff are at the core of the Jungbunzlauer business philosophy.
Our personnel are employed according to the highest employment standards, respecting all legal requirements and continuously improving health and safety conditions. Jungbunzlauer strictly rejects child labour and slavery, discrimination due to gender, religion or race as well as corruption and bribery and fully respects the rules of conduct stated in the International Labour Organization's Fundamental Conventions as well as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Jungbunzlauer plants are also registered at the collaborative platform SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) which is a non-profit organisation dedicated to driving improvements in responsible and ethical business practices in global supply chains.
We recognise our social responsibility for the communities in which we operate. In our role as a corporate citizen we strive to create long-term value for its citizens. With the commitment to our existing manufacturing locations in Europe and North America, we not only maintain and increase employment but, by doing so, our facilities support the economic and social health of the local economies in which they are located.
It is an important point for Jungbunzlauer that an equivalent amount of 5 % of all dividends paid is given as a contribution to the Karl Kahane Foundation* which works with a growing number of charity organisations in various fields.
* The Karl Kahane Foundation is a separate and independent body to the Jungbunzlauer Group.
