  • Customer service promotes transparency. The website does not have any information about sustainability practices of the company. When asked about it, the customer service kindly provided an annual report, which serves as the basis for this review. Points for answering the call of a regular customer interested in sustainability.

    In their report, they state that one of the company’s main corporate social responsibility goals is focused to the well-being and safety of their customers and employees and the sourcing and distribution of products. They source all their products from European suppliers, ranging from large multinational companies to smaller producers. One goal for Normal in the 2022/23 period is to gain a deeper understanding of their current situation and identify areas that need more improvement to ensure compliance with future regulations.

    Regarding the report, it mentions that Normal’s aim is to offer customers a wide selection of sustainable choices. The Normal Group follows market trends and customer demands and continues to expand its range of sustainable products across all categories. They also strive to reduce energy and resource consumption in their daily operations. While this information is positive, it lacks detailed insights into how they actually achieve these goals (which is understandable as the report is a general overview, but more specific information would be helpful).

    The products are categorized under several sustainability types: fragrance-free, paraben-free, organic, plastic-free, vegan, fair trade, and reusable packaging. In 2021/22, they launched an initiative to label all products with one or more sustainable attributes. As a result of their focus on these products, their share of total sales has consistently increased, and they plan to continue this trend. They emphasize the importance of delivering products in recycled or recyclable packaging whenever possible.

    During the 2021/22 period, Normal transitioned away from plastic carrier bags in the Normal Group and introduced two non-woven alternatives for customers. According to the report, this initiative has been positively received by customers.

    Their new logistics center in Hedensted, Denmark, was constructed in compliance with the DGNB (Green Building Council Denmark) gold medal standards. To receive the gold medal, a wide range of requirements must be met, such as installing solar panels on the roof.

    Concerning human rights, all suppliers have either signed the Normal Code of Conduct or their own Code of Conduct that meets or exceeds the requirements outlined in the Normal Code of Conduct. In the 2021/22 period, no violations of the Normal Group’s Code of Conduct were detected. The risks faced by the Normal Group are limited because their suppliers are located within the EU, and most of them have a reputable multinational brand.

    The company has also implemented a Code of Ethics that establishes ethical guidelines and anti-corruption policies to be followed by all employees. All new employees are required to familiarize themselves with the Code of Ethics and sign the document.

    As part of their social strategy, the company dedicates two full working days each year, during which all employees at the Danish headquarters collaborate to support charitable organizations. One example is LykkeLiga, a Danish network of handball teams for mentally handicapped children. Over the past year, the company has made various donations to a total of 40 charitable organizations, primarily small-scale and local organizations.

    Regarding data ethics, Normal aims to be transparent and ensure that information about their use of data is honest, genuine, and easily accessible to customers, colleagues, and business partners. Customers always have the option to receive customer service and complaint handling from a human representative. Furthermore, they do not sell personal data.
    Summary

    Based on the annual report, Normal Group takes sustainability into account in their operations in many forms and aims to continually invest in it. As a large company, this is practically a requirement in today’s world. However, there is still much work to be done. At least these areas could be improved:

    – Lack of detailed insights: The report lacks specific information on how Normal achieves its sustainability goals. Providing more specific details would greatly enhance understanding.

    – Enhancing transparency: While Normal has made positive efforts in sustainability, they can further improve transparency by sharing more information about their practices and strategies. One way to achieve this would be by publishing such information on their website.
