In 2017, we began using recycled plastic to replace virgin plastic. By 2025, we'll cut our virgin plastic use in half by using more recycled and bio-based plastics, reducing the amount of plastics in our packaging, and making more packaging reusable and refillable. We also cut the amount of plastic packaging we use by more than 2,000kg annually - simply by using thinner wrap foil !
Even as our business is growing, we've managed to reduce water waste by 37%, thanks to our local well and a new cleaning system. Additionally, our quad-layered glass "daylight lanes" illuminate our factory and LED lighting saves 62% more energy than regular lighting.
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Resources gives us the seal of approval for meeting quality standards in our production facility.
Our manufacturing plant is entirely powered by solar energy-collected using the 3,682 solar panels on our rooftops. By 2022, our plant in Soest, the Netherlands, will be completely carbon neutral.
We love animals, so we never test ingredients or final products on our furry friends.
Keune sources only the highest qualify ingredients for our products. Our products are formulated and manufactured in house to ensure top quality control, and all products go through rigorous testing before we release them to the market
Our family includes the Keune Group, a team of folks with intellectual disabilities who work in our manufacturing facility. They're an essential part of the Keune family and we wouldn't be the same without them!
To help ensure the future of rain forests, 75% of our palm-oil based ingredients are RSPO quality certified. By the end of 2021, this will increase to 100%. To promote sustainable forestry, 97% of our cardboard and paper packaging in FSC or PEFC certified-which will grow to 100% by 2021.
