Faun is commited to respecting and supportingthe human rights of all individuals potentially affected by our operations. The UN has given the world a common work plan; The UN's sustainability goals, to eradicate poverty, fight inequalities and stop climate change by 2030. Faun will contribute to achieving the UN's sustainability goals and to promoting respect for basic human rights and decent working conditions. The important sustainability promise requires a long-term strategy and an open dialogue. We work continuously to update internal guidelines and routines so that our operations meet legal requirements and expectations.
The Transparency Act
Faun is covered by the Norwegian Transparency Act and we work closely with our suppliers and partners to bring about good measures and improvements. Faun distances itself from suppliers, customers or other partners who deviate from, or actively prevent individuals' human rights from being respected. Furthermore, the company is certified in accordance with FSSC 22000 (food safety), where due diligence assessment of suppliers is a requirement.
The due diligence assessment includes:
All suppliers are registered and approved before they are used. The approval routine includes control of suppliers' compliance with the UN's sustainability goals.
Suppliers of raw materials are risk-assessed and evaluated using SSAFE's vulnerability assessment for nutritional supplements. SSAFE is a global non-profit membership organization that works to strengthen food safety and improve the health and well-being of people, plants and animals.
Suppliers are regularly evaluated. Scope and frequency depend on risk assessment and the supplier's criticality for Faun's operation.
Responsible consumption and production
Faun facilitates responsible production where we use our resources wisely, and are continuously working to reduce our environmental footprint. We therefore establish annual action plans to reduce the burden from the company on the external environment. These are linked to Faun's overall sustainability goals:
Offer and facilitate use of more sustainable product packaging to our customers
Reduce total amount of waste
Increase proportion of source-sorted waste so that the company at all times satisfies the current requirements in the EU regulations.
Reduce energy consumption
