PIONEERING ECO-FRIENDLY CHOCOLATE PRODUCTION
VGAN's new initiative, the VGAN Footprint and Sustainability Study, aims to redefine the production of chocolate, focusing on environmental impact, workers' rights, and animal welfare.
This initiative seeks to establish transparent and sustainable practices from soil to shelf, ensuring every aspect of production upholds ethical standards.
ENVIRONMENTAL AND ETHICAL COMMITMENT
VGAN recognizes the detrimental effects of conventional chocolate production, including deforestation and habitat loss, and aims to counteract these with vegan and organic alternatives. These alternatives not only reduce environmental impact but also support natural farming practices that preserve biodiversity.
In line with the EU Green Deal’s strategy “From Farm to Fork” VGAN also wants to secure a sustainable livelihood for primary producers and social rights for workers in the supply chain. This is our main focus outside of creating the most delicious sweets available.
CONCRETE ACTIONS FOR SUSTAINABLE CHANGE
VGAN is committed to tangible improvements rather than superficial changes. The focus extends beyond mere packaging alterations to fundamental shifts in agricultural practices, processing, and transportation, aiming for a comprehensive reduction in the carbon footprint.
VGAN's vegan chocolate production model eliminates the need for animal-derived ingredients, thus promoting animal welfare.
Collaborations with organizations like Mercy For Animals and AURORA highlight VGAN's dedication to ethical practices and plant-based alternatives.
PROMOTING HEALTH AND MODERATION
While VGAN doesn't overly emphasize the health benefits of our chocolate, we do acknowledge the advantages of consuming vegan chocolate, which is free from cholesterol and saturated fats.
We advocate for a balanced approach to indulgence, complemented by an active lifestyle.
Eat better chocolate, and keep playing.
With this focus, VGAN supports and collaborates with partners who inspire both kids and adults.
The activities we engage in are relatable and enjoyable for everyone, from amateurs to seasoned pros.
Action and board sports are close to our hearts and embody the free-thinking spirit upon which VGAN was founded.
TRANSPARENCY AND CONSUMER EDUCATION
VGAN commits to transparent communication about its sustainability projects, aiming to educate consumers on the impact of their choices.
This effort is supported by Innovation Norway and involves partners like The Big Idea Lab AS and Corporate Good, emphasizing business innovation and social responsibility.
