UN World Sustainability Goal
THE UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR WORK AT ZENZ ORGANIC PRODUCTS
At ZENZ Organic Products, we believe 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 cannot actively support on our own, we try to contribute to, by entering into partnerships with other companies.
Here you can read a bit about how we work with the UN's global goals.
GOAL # 1 ELIMINATE POVERTY
Together with the PlanChild Foundation, ZENZ Organic Products helps young mothers get away from poverty and prostitution in Kampala, Uganda. The young mothers are trained as hairdressers and thus have the opportunity to support themselves and their families. You can read more about the project Support the Girls.
OBJECTIVE # 3 HEALTH AND WELLNESS
At ZENZ Organic Products, we opt out of all ingredients that are, or are suspected to be, endocrine disruptors, allergies and / or carcinogens. ZENZ Organic Products strives to be 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.
OBJECTIVE # 4 QUALITY EDUCATION
In our ZENZ Organic Hairdressing salons, our hairdressers have time and time again proved to be among the most skilled in Denmark. We offer in-house training through ZENZ Organic Academy, which includes a management training for hairdressers. You can read more about our hairdressing salons.
In Kampala, Uganda, in cooperation with the PlanChildren Foundation, we help provide vulnerable women with a hairdressing education. Many of these women have started their own salon after graduation.
