Sustainability

Taking on challenging objectives

In a fast changing world, the ability to take on new challenges and react to changing needs with new service solutions are high priorities. The Dussmann Group has prepared for these challenges with efficient structures, client-orientation and a demanding sustainability program.

The Dussmann Group has formulated quantifiable objectives for sustainability. The company and its employees are proud to have achieved nearly all of these objectives in the past years.

In order to sustain this momentum and to ensure that the company’s record is consistently improved, the Dussmann Group continues to set objectives for the coming years.

Social Responsibility

We believe that our social responsibility includes ensuring that our personnel are paid fairly and punctually for their dedicated work. We are committed to the prevention of the illegal employment practices which undermine wage agreements and we support the introduction of sector-specific, regionally adjusted minimum wages.

Stickers to encourage careful use of resources are used in all sections of the Dussmann Group in all countries. In some sections, guidelines are displayed for Dussmann staff but also in areas where they encourage careful use of energy by the client's personnel.

Serving up sustainability; on request, catering operations are organized according to the EU directive on organic catering. Many Dussmann operations already carry organic certification serving organic meals and using local, seasonal ingredients and fair trade products.

Dussmann Service deploys energy-saving machines in most of its cleaning operations. We use biodegradable and highly concentrated cleaning products and give priority to local wholesalers. Cleaning products, paper and textiles carry at least one environmental label: A.I.S.E., EU-Blume, FSC-Siegel or Nordic Swan
