Snick Euroingredients is committed to contribute to a sustainable future
Sustainability is a top priority at Snick EuroIngredients. In order to take significant steps forward in both sustainability and social terms, we were looking for external collaboration. Several possible partners were sought to support Snick in this and VOKA was found in this search. The VOKA sustainable entrepreneurship department has developed the VOKA Charter for Sustainable Entrepreneurship (VCDO). This charter is based on the 17 sustainability goals (SDGs) that the United Nations wants to achieve. By working with the SDGs as a guideline, Snick wants to commit to create broad support and to make progress on an economic, sociological and ecological level.
In 2022, the VCDO charter was achieved for the first time. To this end, Snick has taken various actions in different areas:
- Personnel: investments were made in various lifting aids throughout the production. This relieves the staff of heavy lifting movements and ensures that the staff remains in better physical condition. After all, a healthy mind is always in a healthy body.
- Environment: investments were also made in lighting within Snick. All fluorescent lamps in the warehouse were replaced by LED lamps last summer. These lamps are more sustainable for the environment and give more and brighter light. The latter has a positive effect on the staff, which greatly reduces the risk of adverse effects such as headaches.
- Ecological: more waste streams are recycled. Previously, too much use was made of the compactor. PMD trash cans have now also been installed in the refectory, among other places. This ensures that more recycling is possible of the various waste streams.
In 2023, Snick wants to make further efforts to further expand sustainability. Several new projects are already in the pipeline!
