Time to transform agricultural supply chains

The global food system, and agriculture in particular, is at the centre of some of the world’s most serious developmental, economic and environmental challenges. To help tackle these issues, we’ve created a Sustainability Framework including 10 Priority Areas that cover all aspects of our operations.

We based the Priority Areas, which include topics like economic opportunity and water use, on a combination of our customers’ commitments, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the nine Planetary Boundaries identified by the Stockholm Resilience Centre.

 

Alongside customers, partners and farming communities, we’re taking action every day in each priority area. We report on our progress regularly and we’re monitored and rated by third-party agencies. Comprehensive action and transparency help us build trust and strengthen relationships as we look towards a truly sustainable global food system.
