In our role as a corporate citizen, we strive to create long-term value for 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. As a corporate citizen, we aim to provide positive value to society and to meet the expectations of our stakeholders. We believe our business practices create added value for society and for our company.
The biggest impact is of course closest to home and therefore Jungbunzlauer takes great care of the immediate environment and local communities around its production sites. At our production site in Ladenburg, our employees have the possibility for a free flu vaccination. Employees can receive their vaccination at work in just a few minutes. With this initiative, we support social protection against influenza viruses.
Furthermore, we participate in different community initiatives addressing environmental aspects. For example, at our production site in Port Colborne, Canada, we support initiatives to protect pollinator species and monarch butterflies.
Since 1991 Jungbunzlauer has donated 44 mCHF to the Karl Kahane Foundation through continuous contributions. The Kahane Foundation, an independent, privately funded, non-political and non-religious charitable foundation, works with a growing number of charitable organisations in various fields. During Jungbunzlauer’s Jubilee year, the Kahane family decided to triple the contribution to the Kahane Foundation for humanitarian work.
