We take our responsibility seriously
At Chaya we take our social responsibility seriously. It is therefore our goal that our products not only meet customer expectations but are produced under conditions that are consistent with human rights and sustainability principles.
Circular economy, recycling and environmentally friendly materials
We are working towards a more circular economy in a wide range of areas.
As an essential part of our ”green” business plan, we are part of the exciting initiative ”Sustainable Bottom Line”. The project is part of Gate 21, a partnership between regions, municipalities, companies and knowledge institutions under Greater Copenhagen, working for the common goal of accelerating green change and growth.
In the effort to optimize our sustainable profile, we focus on reducing the environmental impact associated with packaging production, marketing materials and waste sorting.
Help reduce food waste
We want to help reduce food waste. In Denmark, we waste more than 700,000 tonnes of food each year. Food, which could have been consumed instead. To ensure that in Chaya we do not contribute to this waste of food, we reduce the price on products by up to 70% when they approach the "best before" date or are being removed from our product range.
These items can be found under "date service" in our stores or online.
CSR and UNGC
Human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption are important focus areas in our corporate culture.
The tea, coffee and chocolate industries are known for using child labour, and we feel strongly about fighting this. Therefore, we only collaborate with suppliers who focus on these conditions.
In order to ensure that we know the business processes of our collaborators, Chaya has been working with CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) since 2013.
In 2013, we joined the UNGC (United Nations Global Compact) guidelines and in line with our development we report and document our actions.
This gives us a unique opportunity to ensure that we constantly take the necessary social responsibility.
