Values & Responsibility: Values steer our path

We take social responsibility seriously

Social and eco-friendly

Companies also bear social responsibility. It is our firm belief and also defines our corporate policy. Our corporate culture is based on creativity, reliability and integrity. We want to focus our economic approach at all times on social and environmental consequences. As a global company, this is also a question of credibility for us. We bear responsibility in several ways: as an employer, buyer, producer and trading partner. In a variety of cultures and societies. We want to set a good example everywhere as part of the global community.

Values

Values steer our path

Corporate values are the central guidelines that serve as orientation in our daily work and for achieving goals. We associate our values with a helm that guides our ship (symbolic of company) to its destination, always keeping it on course and helping us to move together in the same direction. The company values define how employees work together and interact. They are the fundament of our culture, but also the engine for change.

Shaping change

Respectfully and with team spirit

We support employees who want to inspire customers with their team spirit, develop new markets and work together to shape change – and we ensure that our partners all over the world comply with environmental and social standards.

Ecology and Sustainability

Our CO2 Strategy

We are moving in the right direction. After identifying and evaluating the emission-generating activities of the Jebsen & Jessen Hamburg Group, it has become our goal to implement carbon reduction strategies to mitigate our environmental impact. One of these strategies is the financing of certified sustainable projects to compensate for our carbon footprint, such as the Colombian Vichada Climate Reforestation project. The main objective of Vichada Climate Reforestation project is to enable reforestation and afforestation activities with biodiversity protection in Colombia. Additionally, this UN Gold Standard project promotes the empowerment of local communities through the creation of secure job opportunities, while tailoring climate change educational programs in local schools. The Corporate Sustainability Division is currently developing a core business strategy for a long-term reduction of our corporate carbon footprint.
