Resource efficiency and highly engaged employees
We strive to achieve sustainable operations through resource efficiency and highly engaged employees. With our values Making things happen, Far-sighted and Good to work with as guiding principles, we continuously improve our sustainability performance to proof our future as a company and employer.
We reduce our CO2 emissions in line with the Paris agreement’s 1.5-degree target
We are committed to reduce our CO2 emissions according to Green House Gas Protocol´s Scope 1 and 2 with 50% until the year 2030, with the year 2020 as a baseline. We will make this happen by focusing on energy efficiency, electrification, and the use of renewable energy sources.
We minimize waste and see all waste
as a resource
As part of our sustainability strategy, we want to reduce our waste as much as we possibly can. The long-term target is to have zero waste going to landfill or incineration. To ensure continuous improvements and a systematic approach within the environmental area, we are certified with the environmental standard of ISO 14001.
”Taking responsibility for our business related emissions is important to show both customers and employees that we do what we can to contribute to a sustainable future. The climate crisis is a global issue that we must solve together and take responsibility for in every action"
Håkan Donnerlid, Managing Director CERTEX Sweden
We want to be the most attractive employer in our industry
...therefore, we provide our employees group-wide people development programs and focus on workplace wellbeing as well as diversity and inclusion.
At Mennens, we always put safety first and our workplace should contribute positively on our colleagues´ wellbeing. All people involved in our business should be safe when being at work and our view of safety includes both physical as well as mental health. We are certified with the health & safety standard ISO 45001 to have a well-established and systematic method to prevent and manage risks and accidents.
Good to work with
One of our core values is to be Good to work with – both externally and internally. Our Code of Ethics is a guideline for ethical sound behavior for all employees. It is an extension of our core values, a simple map to what the company expects from us in various contexts of our everyday work.
To ensure that our employees comply with our values and policies, there is a group-wide whistleblower service, managed by an external party. We urge all employees and partners to tell us about any actions that go against what we stand for as a company – it creates security and helps us achieve a good corporate culture.
Sustainable supply chain
By teaming up with suppliers who share our values and meet our sustainability standards, we make sure all links in the chain share the same goals, a sustainable supply chain.
Sustainable customer offer
We put our pride in offering safe products and services to meet the customers´ quality expectations and to improve their sustainability performance.
