Our vision statement says: We want to make the world smarter and healthier – and we believe that we can change people’s drinking habits for the better, and for that very reason we invented the plant-powered drink for brains. Besides being nutritious and great for the well-being of people worldwide, Clutch Cognition ApS works towards being a responsible company that makes the world better in other areas outside nutrition-related physical and mental health. We based our product on plants entirely, and we use no artificial chemicals in our products so that there is no adverse impact on human health and the environment in connection with our production or product.
On our road towards the highest level of social responsibility we are now officially approved by the United Nation to contribute to 4 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as seen below:
Clutch Cognition is contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
SDG 3 – Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
At Clutch Cognition we see it as a priority to increase our positive impact on the general health and well-being of the people around us – both close and far. We consider this to be an integral part of our business. Our vision was based on creating a drink, filled only with high-quality and nutritious ingredients.
Our vision is to create a healthier and smarter world. By offering educational content in our Knowledge Hub and products formulated with the best clinically backed ingredients on the market we are one step closer.
SDG 6 – Clean water and sanitation
At Clutch Cognition we want to minimize our negative impact on water supply and sanitation opportunities. We do so by actively choosing suppliers that work to decrease water consumption in their sourcing of their products.
As our ingredients are plant based, it is important for us that the produce is grown sustainably and with preventative focus on aspects such as over fertilization and soil erosion. Our suppliers are actively decreasing water consumption and pollution in their production.
One example of the great work our suppliers do, is our supplier BENEO. They work closely with their contract farmers to manage the long-term health of their soil. They aim to prevent over fertilization or soil exploitation and soil erosion. They have turned the water reservoirs at 2 out of 4 of BENEO’s production plants into bird sanctuaries, to aid biodiversity.
Another example is our supplier IFF (IFF Health), who has made significant reductions in their water Footprint. In 2020, they reduced their legacy IFF water intensity by 1.38% from the prior year. This is a total reduction in water use intensity of 67.09% since 2010. They continuously work to improve their environmental footprint. acked ingredients on the market we are one step closer.
SDG 8 – Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all
At Clutch Cognition we want to give everyone a fair chance to have a meaningful career. We see it as a priority to engage with local projects and programs to help students and newly graduates gain valuable practical experience.
We have previously been engaged with local students from the humanities, to help us with implementing sustainability for stakeholders and in our supply chain. We have further been involved in a program aimed at helping newly graduated academics gain work experience.
We expect to participate in similar projects in the future and we hope we can set an example with our business partners to have similar practices as ourselves.
Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we make a conscious effort to support the local entrepreneurial community and contribute whenever it is meaningful.
SDG 12 – Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
At Clutch Cognition we have high expectations and requirements for our suppliers. The most important of these is sustainability in the sourcing of our ingredients. We only work with suppliers that have sustainably sourced products, and ambitious CSR-policies just as we aspire to do ourselves. It is important for us, that they work with the same level of transparency in their supply chain as we do.
The products we source from the above-mentioned suppliers are strictly plant-based and we order very exact amounts from them so that we can ensure reasonable production. In addition to this, we are aiming to have a limited production so that we are certain that our production is not wasteful.
