In times of an ongoing pandemic, the initiatives of the premium brand have focused on promoting education and advances in the development of more sustainable packaging
(Valencia, Spain. 2nd December 2021).- As in the last 10 years, the multinational company SanLucar has presented its new Global Compact Progress Report. An annual document in which the premium fruit and vegetable brand reaffirms its commitment to the 10 Principles promoted by the Global Compact, as well as to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
On this occasion, the report on the corporate responsibility actions -undertaken by SanLucar in the period 2019-2020- comes out in a context defined by the Covid 19 crisis. A global emergency which, according to the owner and founder of SanLucar, Stephan Rötzer, has forced to reflect, restructure, and innovate at both the corporate and personal levels.
»Today more than ever, we have seen how important it is for everyone to work together, and to establish alliances between companies, NGOs, universities and educational institutions in order to successfully face the new challenges of the future and the pandemic,« said Rötzer.
He adds: »At SanLucar, our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, which extends along our entire value chain, has become even stronger«.
The fruit and vegetable premium brand has focused on overcoming the gap that the pandemic opened up in children’s access to education. In this sense, SanLucar has promoted, through its corporate responsibility programme DREAMS, various school reinforcement projects in different countries. These initiatives are addressed to children from low-income families, who have not been able to follow the virtual classes taught during the hardest months of the pandemic, due to lack of internet access.
Furthermore, as the report shows, SanLucar has worked to innovate in the development of more sustainable packaging for its products.
