Sustainability and social responsibility
For us, corporate success is inextricably linked to social and sustainable responsibility. We are committed to helping shape the social environment and fostering sustainable progress.
In addition to the responsible consumption of natural resources, we use our very own electric company car for our business trips and daily errands. By taking advantage of green electricity, we are also making personal contribution to the energy revolution. Through our years of existing cooperation with various workshops helping people with disabilities, we take the issue of social responsibility very seriously. We support people with disabilities by helping them to integrate into daily work and empowering them to experience structure in life. One particularly special point: we also incorporate these individuals in our own production spaces and in various work flows. Additionally, we regularly provide donations to food banks and play our part in doing something about the ever-increasing amount of wasted food, thereby helping those who depend on the goodwill of others.
Our Advent Calendars are 100 % climate-neutral!
As an environmentally conscious company, sustainability is very important to us. Thus we decided to cooperate with ClimatePartner and to make our advent calendars climate-neutral. We compensate for all greenhouse gas emissions caused by the products we produce by investing in a climate protection project. Therefore, all advent calendar orders placed with us are climate-neutral and marked with the "climate-neutral" label. You can find more information on our climate neutrality and the positive effects of the supported project on the climate, the environment and society at www.climatepartner.com/13255-1904-1001.
The Principle of climate-neutrality
Companies, processes and products, whose CO2 emissions are calculated
and compensated for supporting internationally-recognised climate protection
projects are classified as climate-neutral. Additionally, avoiding and
reducing CO2 emissions, as well as compensation for CO2 emissions is
another important step in the holistic approach to climate protection.
Greenhouse gases such as CO2 are distributed evenly in the atmosphere.
Hence, the concentration of greenhouse gases is more or less equal all
over the world. Thus, the impact on the greenhouse effect is the same,
no matter where the greenhouse gas concentrations are, or where the
emissions are caused or avoided. Because of this, emissions that cannot
be avoided locally can be compensated for by climate protection projects
at a different location.
After realising just how well our donation campaign for the Albert Schweitzer Children’s Village in Waldenburg was received this past Christmas season, we have decided to continue this campaign and expand it. In addition to every classic wall advent calendar we sell, we will also donate part of its proceeds to the Albert-Schweitzer Children’s Village for every Advent Calendar 100 % Cardboard.
Up to seven children are taken in by and live with a village family
(traumatised children who have suffered abuse and were separated from
their parents). Here they live with children’s village parents
and their biological children. All families live in their own house,
cook, and support themselves independently. The children’s village
families design their everyday life individually. Through the intensive
time spent together, they develop a familial bond and relationship which
gives the children stability and security.
