Lindt & Sprüngli Sustainability Strategy

Sustainability is an integral part of Lindt & Sprüngli's business model. Our mission is to produce premium chocolate products and to combine our high-quality standards with equally high ethical and sustainable standards in every aspect of our business. 

The Lindt & Sprüngli Promise

Our commitment to sustainability along the entire value chain is reflected in our sustainability promise: “All products that leave our factories will ultimately live up to our commitment to sustainability along the entire value chain.”

The Lindt & Sprüngli Sustainability Plan - Our Commitment for a Better Tomorrow

The Lindt & Sprüngli Sustainability Plan forms the strategy for the sustainability pillar of our business model. It builds directly on our promise.

With the Sustainability Plan, we focus on areas which have the most relevance to our stakeholders and the highest impact on the environment, society and the economy. 

Our aim is to foster successful collaboration within the company, improve the livelihoods of our farmers in the countries of origin, contribute to an intact environment, and delight our consumers.

Responsible and Ethical Business

As a leading international chocolate producer, Lindt & Sprüngli is committed to conducting business in an ethical and socially responsible manner. Acting with integrity is fundamental to how we operate and to building trust with our partners, communities, and stakeholders.

We consider business integrity and human rights
as cross-cutting issues relevant throughout the Lindt & Sprüngli Sustainability Plan and our way of doing business. Our Human Rights Policy formalizes our committment even further.

For specific information on how we identify, prevent, and mitigate potential and actual human rights impacts – such as the risk of child labor and forced labor in cocoa farming, safety and labor practices in our own operations, and monitoring of and engagement with suppliers – please refer to our Sustainability Report.
