Sustainable … in words and deeds

We at JUNG would also like to do our part for sustainable development, since we are convinced that this presents an important requirement for a company’s long-term success. Aside from low consumption of natural resources, we use our company’s own electric car for business trips and errands. Furthermore, we use biodegradable foil for some of our products. When selecting our suppliers and brands, we additionally focus on sustainability.

For example, a part of our range is Fairtrade Certified or UTZ Certified, thereby supporting sustainable cocoa cultivation.

Social engagement

After the campaign was so positively received during the past Christmas season, we have decided to once again run a charity fundraiser this year in favour of the Albert Schweitzer Children's Village in Waldenburg.

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.

Since the high social standards and sustainability put into practice have impressed us so much, we will be donating part of the proceeds from every Classic Wall Advent Calendar sold to the Albert Schweitzer Children's Village.
