Our approach to responsible sourcing considers social, economic, and environmental aspects of our direct suppliers and beyond. As a chocolate company, we prioritize the responsible sourcing of cocoa and other raw and packaging materials. Our Supplier Code of Conduct is a key instrument in this endeavor, as it requires adherence to social and environmental standards by our partners throughout the entire supply chain.
Our own cocoa sustainability program, the Lindt & Sprüngli Farming Program, and other sustainability initiatives for the sourcing of raw materials enables us to support farmers and their families in creating decent and resilient livelihoods and encourage more sustainable farming practices.
Our Main Commitments to Improving Livelihoods
100% of our cocoa (beans, butter, powder, and chocolate mass) is sourced through sustainability programs by 2025.
80% of our procurement expenditure for raw and packaging materials bearing significant sustainability risks is covered by a sustainable sourcing program by 2025.
