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 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.

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 south pole project to reforest and counteract vegetation degradation in Caazapá and Guairá. As deforestation continues to sweep through the Amazon rainforest, it has become vital to reforest such areas to relieve pressure on South America’s natural resources and curb harmful carbon emissions from the Earth’s atmosphere. The Corporate Sustainability Division is currently developing a core business strategy for a long-term reduction of our corporate carbon footprint.
Education and health
We support these projects
Sabalamby is the name of a project in Northern Bangladesh. Our sister company Triton Textile Ltd. supports more than 200 schools with around 3,000 children there. We promote training and education measures and also help to improve the environmental and living conditions. Jebsen & Jessen supports 14 schools with around 6,000 students in Nicaragua through its subsidiary Jebagro. The “Seeds for Progress Foundation” aims to improve education and healthcare in the rural communities of the coffee regions in Nicaragua.
