The Corporate Responsibility Report 2011 is Cloetta’s second sustainability report in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines, G3 and meets the level C criteria.
The sustainability report covers Cloetta’s own operations, meaning Cloetta’s direct impact on the environment and people. All of Cloetta’s production and virtually all sales take place in the Nordic region and all of Cloetta’s direct suppliers, with a few exceptions, are found in Europe, where there is human rights legislation.
Product responsibility and product safety are an integral part of Cloetta’s production process. However, Cloetta has a certain responsibility for the entire life cycle of its products, from raw material supplier to recycling of product packaging. All of Cloetta’s suppliers undergo an approval process in which sustainability requirements are a natural part. For raw material suppliers with whom Cloetta has no direct relationship, such as growers and dairy farmers, Cloetta is responsible for promoting development toward better environmental and working conditions.
Awards during the financial year
Cloetta was awarded the highest score in WWF’s Palm Oil Buyers’ Scorecard 2011 which measures performance among more than 130 retail companies and producers of consumer products. Performance is measured within the four areas that WWF considers show whether the companies are acting responsibly with regard to purchase and use of palm oil.
