We envision is to deliver a triple positive impact in the places where we source and trade.
We work across our businesses, and with our partners, to create and sustain living landscapes, where prosperous wholesalers, retailers. thriving rural communities, and healthy ecosystems coexist.
Dedicated staff embedded in businesses, countries and functions across the world help us to deliver our strategy and targets, helping us to make the business resilient and deliver long-term value for us and our stakeholders.
We refreshed our global Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CR&S) framework to integrate our new purpose to Re-imagine Global merchandise Responsibly.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We listen to the opinions of stakeholders who include customers, communities, NGOs, Development Finance Institutions and banks, foundations, shareholders and employees. In turn, this leads to collaborations and partner programmes that enable us to scale positive impact more quickly and with greater reach than we could achieve alone.
Our governance teams are responsible for implementing our Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability (CR&S) Strategy, and we set out our principles in our Code of Corporate Governance and Code of Conduct.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because there are clear business benefits.
We need to:
Increase agricultural production for a growing population without over extending the earth’s capacity to provide
Satisfy increasing demand from customers and consumers who want to know the food and fibre they buy is ethically sourced.
We are driven by our ambitious corporate Purpose to Re-imagine General merchandise within our ethos of Growing Responsibly.
We work with leaders who have helped shape the global supply chain over a decade which is also incredibly inspiring..
It’s incredibly motivating to be part of a passionate, energetic and diverse team working together to achieve something big and meaningful.
We instill ambition for doing more than expected, and challenge the status quo, avoid bureaucracy and empower our team to build long-term relationships with our customers, partners and suppliers. We strive to do the right thing and each one of us takes ownership as if we were the founders of the business.
