We have been dedicated to sustainability for decades and focus on limiting our use of resources as far as possible and operating efficiently during our daily work. We do not, however, believe that sustainability should be limited to ecology or climate protection: in this respect, values associated with the greater good such as dignity, solidarity and justice are also a fixed part of the social values supported by Gunz.
Our key goal in this area: preventing the use of unnecessary resources. This is an area in which we have always led by example; from the latest buildings, systems and machinery to our economical vehicle fleet.
Human dignity and fair trade
In the space of two years, we switched our entire praline and chocolate range to Fairtrade cocoa. This means we are now the biggest partner of Fairtrade Austria in this field.
The Gunz Solidarity Fund is endowed with 100,000 euros per year. We prioritise the provision of support to employees who find themselves in harsh personal circumstances. We donate the money that we don’t spend within our company to social welfare organisations.
At our company, our employees are people and not cost centres. They are our company’s capital.
