Creating goodfoodmood with care

Duni Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

“Duni’s corporate social responsibility is part of our core business – we believe in paving the way in responsible operations and delivering goodfoodmood® throughout.

Duni products should create good feelings. Only products made with respect for society and the environment we operate in will create that right atmosphere.

Responsible business decisions are what make us accountable. Our Blue Mission is the programme platform for Duni Corporate Social Responsibility, setting targets and ways of working until 2020. We invite you to share our journey on creating goodfoodmood with care. ”

Duni Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Committed to staying one step ahead, we commissioned a new CSR survey in 2016. The respondents were key decision-makers, mainly working for full-service restaurants, hotels and wholesalers, in Germany, France, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and UK.

Key findings: the number of our customers who feel well-informed about our CSR work, and feel it is of a high-standard, is growing. Quality and design remain the most important factors for choosing our products – while 30% have chosen a Duni product for its environmental profile.


A Lifecycle Less Ordinary

Our ecoecho® range reflects our desire to be outstanding – and first – in our market, our goodfoodmood brand essence and Our Blue Mission.

The range offers some of the most outstanding – if not the best – solutions in the market for sustainability, quality and style.

To qualify as ecoecho®, a product must meet a high standard: a significant part of it must fulfil at least two of these environmental standards: Resource Efficiency, Renewability, Compostability and Responsible Sourcing.

Supplier Collaboration
Shared Responsibility

We work very closely with our suppliers to ensure they meet the highest standards – and, in doing so, keep the promises we make. They are all audited regulary to ensure they uphold sustainable values, follow our stringent Supplier Code of Conduct and comply with all the relevant EU regulations.


Investing in Safety

Ensuring safety is paramount for us at Duni. As a leading supplier of candles, we take part in the important work of establishing European standards for quality and safety. But that’s just one example of the many initiatives we are involved in.

We also rigorously test all our products to ensure they meet our own strict safety requirements, as well as the relevant standards. In doing so, we work with a number of independent external partners, as well as carrying out internal testing programmes.

Environmental Labels

At Duni, as part of our Blue Mission, we work hard to minimise the environmental impact of our business. It’s important to us that our products are made and used with respect for nature. Reflecting this, they may carry one or more of these labels:

The Swan Nordic Ecolabel is one of the most well-known Ecolabels in the world. It guarantees products have fulfilled stringent environmental and climate criteria.

The OK compost label confirms products or packaging are in compliance with EN 13432, the European standard for compostability in industrial composting installations.

Duni is an FSC®-certified company, meaning the great majority of our tissue-based products come from wood fibres sourced from responsibly managed FSC®-certified forests.

Our pulp is also bleached in either TCF (Totally chlorine free) or ECF (Elementary Chlorine Free) processes.
