«natural and honest». Out of convinction
The HUG family promise “natural and honest” is the sustainable basis for our business activities. Seven areas of activity allow us to constantly make improvements and deepen our culture of sustainability.
A CERTIFIED CLIMATE-NEUTRAL COMPANY
We are pursuing a comprehensive climate strategy, which we are currently implementing step by step. Our primary concern is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible. Offsetting them is our second priority. In 2022, we were certified as a climate-neutral company by an independent partner. From 2023 onwards, we will be offseting all CO₂ emissions generated from our DAR·VIDA packaging via the forest reserve project in the Swiss Napf region.
OUR LABELS AND CERTIFICATES
As a result of our CO₂ management including climate targets, an engagement plan and an annual external, independent audit of our carbon footprint, we are entitled to bear the Swiss Climate label.
The Rainforest Alliance programme ensures that cocoa farmers improve their crops and increase their incomes while protecting the environment and the Earth’s natural resources.
