Overview sustainability pillars

Chrysal Cares

Our Chrysal Cares program was originally developed in 2009 and the start of our sustainability journey. In this last decade we have learned a lot. With our sustainability program we focus on four different pillars:

  1. Fighting climate change
    Climate neutral by 2030, striving for a positive impact afterwards.
     
  2. Contributing to sustainable economy
    Moving towards 50 percent circular by 2030, 100 percent by 2040.
     
  3. Caring for employees and people
    Enhancing lives and work experience
     
  4. Towards a positive environmental impact
    Positively contributing to the environment we depend upon

1. Fighting climate change

We aim to be climate neutral by 2030 and that is why we started to fully analyze our carbon footprint in 2019. We do this for all our products and operations in cooperation with Ecochain. It is important for us to know our impact on the environment as it will give direction for future product development and will provide us with insights in what ways we can help our customers with their sustainability goals.

2. Contributing to sustainable economy

The growing challenge of plastics in the environment means it is more urgent than ever to find more sustainable solutions. By 2030 we want to be at least 50% circular and in 2040 we aim to be 100% circular. In order to achieve that, we focus on having circular packaging, which is made entirely from non-virgin material and is fully recyclable or re-usable. Also, we will use only sustainably sourced ingredients, minimizing our waste and maintaining water quality.

3. Caring for employees and people

At Chrysal we care about people. We create a caring workplace for our employees by considering their health and safety a high priority and our responsibility. We also greatly value equality and diversity. Furthermore, we support local communities by contributing to their health and education and by supporting local development.

4. Towards a positive environmental impact

With fighting climate change and contributing to a sustainable economy, we eliminate any negative effects we have on the environment as a business. But we aim to take that one step further and also positively contribute to the environment we depend upon, by supporting biodiversity and enabling sustainable land & water use.
