Committed to the future – engaged in sustainability

Throughout Jungbunzlauer’s history, the company has sought to make sustainability a keystone of its strategy and has successfully developed and adapted to the requirements of a continuously changing economic and social environment.

Today, however, the state of our planet requires a much broader vision in terms of our approach to sustainability. Our environment and climate are threatened by pollution and the unsustainable use of resources. We believe it is necessary for every individual to engage and cooperate with each other in order to address these pressing issues and to find solutions that contribute to the preservation of the planet for future generations. One way of doing this is by choosing business partners that support this vision. Jungbunzlauer’s mission, “From nature to ingredients®”, aimed at environmental, economic and social sustainability, commits us to the protection of people and their environment. We and all our operations are dedicated to sustainability and to bettering society, the environment and the economy.

As an economic and societal actor Jungbunzlauer is aware of its responsibility towards its clients, employees, environment, and society. As a global leader with brands and products known throughout the world, we aim to address all of our legal, ethical and economic responsibilities. Our mission commits us to the protection of people and their environment, hence our engagement in a variety of environmentaleconomic and social initiatives geared towards sustainability.

Communicating our Performance

As a leading producer of biodegradable ingredients of natural origin, Jungbunzlauer strives for an accurate and transparent sustainability-related data collection and communication. Consequently, we want to inform our stakeholders and interested parties on a regular basis about our sustainability performance by providing our annual Sustainability Report.

Information about our performance can be reviewed according to the GRI Standards provided in each chapter. Further, we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set in 2015 with an action plan for sustainable development.
