Our modern way of living and doing business comes at a huge price: it has led to an urgent climate crisis, destruction of ecosystems and biodiversity and social inequality. We only have one earth, and our global future depends on it. We must therefore work together to achieve a more sustainable future.
At Mentha and at our companies, we care about a sustainable, safe, healthy and fair environment for all. We believe that environmental and social issues can only be solved with business as part of the solution, and we feel a deep responsibility to contribute. We are convinced that focus on sustainability not only mitigates risks but is fundamental to long-term value creation and future-proofing of the companies we work with. We aspire to a win-win situation: achieve strong business growth and healthy profitability while contributing to a better world.
We are selective in working with companies, entrepreneurs and management teams that share our vision on the importance of sustainable business. We aim to future-proof our companies by integrating sustainability into their success plans. We periodically assess the impact of our companies, identify improvement projects, set targets, and monitor performance and progress on an annual basis. Foremost with the aim of driving positive change and creating real impact.
We aim to make responsible decisions in our daily life and work. From strict supplier selection to energy-saving measures, smart mobility, full carbon offset, separation of waste streams and continuous investment in a diverse, healthy and happy team.
In addition, we actively support non-profit initiatives our team is passionate about. We spend 7.5% of annual profits, and devote time, knowledge and network, to such initiatives.
