Our sustainability programme
If you take sustainability seriously, you have to pay attention to a lot of things. Same also applies to Rügenwalder Mühle. We have therefore launched a comprehensive programme, which consists of eight fields of activity where concrete projects and measures are implemented. We are only at the beginning and already know now that it will probably never be completed. To achieve "more sustainability" is a permanent challenge, where there will always be new tasks. But nothing is ignored; even if we sometimes move forward in small steps only.
For us, sustainability is teamwork and a management issue at the same time. That is why it’s up to all of us - from apprentices to management. At all levels and in all processes, we want to take sustainability requirements into account. Our Sustainability Manager coordinates the programme, all threads come together in the sustainability workgroup - but it gets implemented in the individual departments and work areas.
We can only be as sustainable as our supply chain. Therefore, we understand suppliers as our partners for more sustainability. We want to know more about the ecological and social challenges of everything we purchase; for products with and without meat.
We want to spend as few resources as possible, rely on renewable energies and avoid waste whenever we can.
When it comes to packaging, our goads are quickly expressed, but challenging in implementaton: avoid, reduce, improve, and recycle.
Our products should become more and more sustainable. We want to use as few critical ingredients as possible, and the nutritional values should enable a healthy diet.
We want to be a responsible and attractive top employer, with little fluctuation and low sickness rates but with a lot of opportunities for training and further education, and with a flexibility so to allow Rügenwalder Mühle employees to reconcile family and professional life.
We take our social responsibility seriously and are engaged in concrete projects. And we want to remain open for suggestions and criticism from outside. Because that’s what prompts us and takes us forward.
We are communicating progress and challenges in an open and transparent way, and we are appreciating feedback. And we want to make sustainability visible and tangible, both internally and externally.
