We can only achieve big successes in cooperation with others. Therefore, we partner with many different institutions and NGOs in order to support the communities where we are present.
Flying Tiger Copenhagen has during H2 2019 worked intensively to develop and implement a more circular mindset in the company's business concept. One of the initiatives is the collaboration with Plastic Change, which will contribute to specific initiatives to manage and minimise the company's use of plastic.
United Nations Global Compact (UNGC)
We are proudly supporting the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, and endorse its ten principles to respect human and labour rights, protect the environment, and fight corruption.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Through our FSC-certification, we support sustainable forestry, including protection of biodiversity and respect for the rights of local communities as well as forestry workers.
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
Since 2020, we are a member of the RSPO, supporting their work to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil.
We support and are a part of the CCR-CSR network, a social enterprise with competence, experience and knowledge to help companies improve and implement child rights-related CSR-strategies, programs and projects. We use CCR-CSR for the remediation of child labour cases in China.
In Kind Direct & Dons Solidaires
Since 2017, we have been donating products to In Kind Direct (UK) and its partner organisation Dons Solidaires (France), both minimising our environmental footprint and helping communities in need.
We have donated to the Red Cross, both minimising our environmental footprint and providing essential goods for the humanitarian work with refugees.
National food banks
We donate unsold food products to Fødevarebanken (Denmark), FareShare (United Kingdom), and Banc Dels Aliments (Spain), thereby minimising food waste across our value chain and making a difference to vulnerable social groups.
We have donated food products that approach their expiry date to WeFood, a Danish supermarket only operating on previously unsold goods, to fight food waste along our value chain.
As a global company, we can and want to positively impact local communities. It is our expressed commitment that all measures are to be taken to donate an unsold product to people in need before sending it to waste. In doing so, we minimise our environmental footprint as well as help disadvantaged families and communities. Our underlying donation policy ensures transparency across the entire business.
In 2019, we have donated products that are safe to use but no longer commercially attractive (e.g. due to broken packaging) to In Kind Direct (UK), Red Cross (DK) and Dons Solidaires (FR), among others. These organisations further distribute our wide range of products to people in need. For instance, 1,266 different charities across the UK have benefitted from our collaboration with In Kind Direct, the majority focusing on child/youth care and family welfare.
From our food assortment, we have donated products that were about to expire to national foodbanks in Denmark, the UK, and Spain, as well as to WeFood, a Danish supermarket exclusively operating on products that are no longer commercially attractive to retailers. Through these donations, we can minimise the food waste in our value chain and help promoting the topic’s visibility in the public discourse.
Our ambition for 2020 is to further improve food and product waste prevention, maintain the level of engagement with the charities, and foster donation processes on the store level. We also want to investigate improving conditions in the part of our value chain using homeworkers.
