Sustainability and social responsibility are high priorities at Heindl. As central themes, these important topics are respected in all departments – from the selection of regional products, to the use of only fair cocoa, to clever energy production or use. In October 2014, the entire Heindl and Pischinger assortment was converted to 100% fair trade cocoa and the largest private photovoltaic system in Vienna was installed directly on the roof of the chocolate museum. Since then, it has provided the entire hot water demand of all production steps.
As far as possible, all ingredients and raw materials takes are obtained regionally by Austrian suppliers. This prevents long transport routes and relieves the environment.
