We believe the promotion of social sustainability should lie at the heart of every organisation. At Jungbunzlauer, social sustainability means maintaining a fair business environment over the whole supply chain in accordance with the highest ethical and social standards. Our employees are our most important resource and change, adaptation, innovation and development are only achievable 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 our customers. Motivated and well-trained staff are at the core of the Jungbunzlauer business philosophy and we see engaged employees as the key to our success.
Therefore, not only does Jungbunzlauer adhere to all international labour standards and relevant laws regarding employment and labour; we also strive to offer a good working environment with high standards where our employees can thrive. 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.
All Jungbunzlauer plants are 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 the citizens in these communities. Through our commitment to our existing manufacturing locations in Europe and North America, we maintain and increase employment and as a result of this action our facilities support the economic and social health of the local economies in which they are located.
