Donating excess products to charity

We aim to produce only the required amount of products, but sometimes there are still products left over. It is important to us that none of our products end up in landfills, therefore we donate the excess products to charity. In these donations, we aim to give priority to the most vulnerable, such as children and young people in need.

In the United States, school supplies are regularly donated to schools and other charitable organizations that reach children in need. At our U.S. headquarters in Middleton, Wisconsin, we partnered with the Goodman Community Center to provide hund

In the summer of 2022, we continued the fundraiser and raised money for UNICEF with our Get Active! challenge. This exercise challenge encouraged our employees to take care of their health and exercise regularly. As an encouragement, we donated EUR 0.20 for every activity kilometer to UNICEF’s work in Ukraine. More than 250 employees from all over the world took part in the challenge, and by the end of July, we had raised EUR 15,000 for UNICEF.

Health and safety

Our employees have the right to a safe working environment, every day.

Our target is that we have zero accidents. We encourage everyone to take responsibility for their own safety and that of others. The promotion of health and safety is also an integral part of our management system, and almost all our sites are covered by the ISO 45001 standard. We are working to expand this standard to cover all our manufacturing units and distribution centers.

We expect our management teams to carry out regular health and safety performance reviews to ensure sufficient resourcing and to make continuous health and safety improvements an integral part of our culture.

All employees have the right to stop working at any point if they observe a health and safety risk. We address any safety hazards without delay. We also partner with an external service provider to offer an anonymous and secure channel for any issues, misconduct or unethical behavior that are not sufficiently addressed by line management.

Our target: Zero harm with zero Lost Time Accident Frequency (LTAF)

Safety Week 2022

In September, we held our annual Safety Week under the theme “I care: Back to safety basics.” For us, Safety Week is an important way to promote safety at work and engage every employee in mitigating hazards. During the week, safety-related activities were arranged for all employees at factories, distribution centers, retail shops, and offices. Safety Week also serves as a reminder to report even minor safety observations, and as a result, almost 1,000 safety observations were received during the week from the our locations worldwide.
