Our approach

At Duni Group, we adopted our 2030 strategy, “Our Decade of Action,” in 2021 to strengthen our position as a trusted sustainability leader. We operate in the market for sustainable solutions for the hotel and restaurant trade (HoReCa).

Our sustainable offering

Our ESG profile is clear. Duni Group wants to climb as high up in the waste hierarchy as possible and take part in the circular economy. We base our choices on science, and provide customers with the best sustainable solution for every occasion. This means that we provide both single-use and reuse products – as long as it is the best sustainable choice. Having made the big shift into fiber solutions, approximately 95 percent of the Group’s products or services can be defined as sustainable if you include start-of-life and end-of-life dimensions.

Innovation in new technologies and materials is a core part of the Group’s strategy and a starting point for all product decisions. Our offering is compatible with end-of-life systems for recycling, composting or reuse. We are also innovating where there are no such systems, for example, with our closing-the-loop circular system for tableware at restaurants. We also engage in partnerships, cooperation, and standard-setting initiatives to nudge societies to develop further systems for circularity.
