The UN Sustainable Development Goals are an integral part of our work at ZENZ Organic Products
At ZENZ Organic Products, we believe that it is important that we, as a company, help to achieve the goals set by the UN to create a more sustainable world. Specifically, we work with 12 of the 17 world goals.
The goals we try to contribute to, we cannot actively support on our own, we have therefor entered into partnerships with other companies.
Here you can read a bit about how we work with the UN's Sustainable Development goals.
GOAL #1 NO POVERTY
Together with one of Denmark’s largest privately funded children’s rights organisations, PlanBørnefonden, ZENZ Organic Products help young mothers get away from poverty and prostitution in Kampala, Uganda. The young mothers receive a hairdressing education and thus the opportunity to support themselves and their families. You can read more about this project by clicking here.
GOAL #3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
At ZENZ Organic Products, we deselect all ingredients that are, or are suspected to be, endocrine disrupting, allergenic or carcinogenic. ZENZ Organic Products strive to have the healthiest beauty products on the market.
We always ensure good working conditions, both in our ZENZ Organic Hairdressing salons and in the rest of our business including our production.
GOAL #4 QUALITY EDUCATION
In our ZENZ Organic Hairdressing salons, our hairdressers have time and time again proved to be among Denmark’s best. We offer in-house training through ZENZ Organic Academy, which includes a management training for hairdressers.
In Kampala, Uganda, we work in cooperation with PlanBørnefonden to provide vulnerable women with a hairdressing education. Many of these women have started their own salon after graduation.
GOAL #5 GENDER EQUALITY
We are in favour of 100% gender equality in terms of gender, religion or other differences.
GOAL #6 CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
ZENZ Organic Products do not harm the groundwater neither during the production phase nor during the use phase. In our ZENZ Organic Hairdressing salons, we do not use products that affect our groundwater or deteriorate its quality.
GOAL #7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
We buy energy from sustainable forms of energy and help to ensure that a greater share of more sustainable energy is used in the Danish electricity grid.
GOAL #9 INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
We are proud to be able to influence the standard in a positive direction within the beauty industry, as well as being able to inspire to develop and further develop more sustainable ingredients and technologies in relation to beauty products.
GOAL #10 REDUCED INEQUALITIES
We take pride in paying a fair salary to our employees. We fight to reduce inequality in all areas by treating all our fellow humans with the same respect.
GOAL #12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION
At ZENZ Organic Products, we work fundamentally to ensure high sustainability in all processes, and we always take responsibility for the outside world. We try both to set a good example and, in our communication to influence our employees and customers to act more sustainably.
GOAL #14 LIFE BELOW WATER
With our ZENZ Organic Products version 2.0, we take active responsibility for cleaning up the oceans by collaborating with Ocean Waste Plastic. Our version 2.0 products will help remove plastic and therefore improve the living conditions for marine life.
GOAL #15 LIFE ON LAND
ZENZ Organic Products use recycled materials, which helps us reduce the consumption of and the need for new materials such as virgin plastic and virgin paper. We also have waste separation and return systems that help to improve life on land.
GOAL #17 PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE GOALS
We continuously collaborate, locally and globally, with organisations who, like us, work to support the Sustainable Development Goals.
These organisations include PlanBørnefonden, Dansk Folkehjælp, Mødrehjælpen, Knæk Cancer and UNICEF.
