Our commitment to build a better tomorrow for all our stakeholders is still designed around our original beliefs we embarked with in 1882: We connect economic with ecological value to make a difference. We do this wherever we can, and where it contributes and matters most.
Sustainable Development Goals
These intentions are also reflected on another level by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set out by the United Nations: A universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. That’s why we design and align our CSR objectives to fall in line with specific SDGs, hand-picked for maximum contribution.
Our focus to contribute on meeting 9 of the 17 specific SDGs is continuously improved and refined by developing our commitment under three CSR focus areas, with dedicated Sustainability Expert Teams to manage the process and progress.
We commit to providing safe food and feed for our customers. The foundations for our product safety and quality are built on strict policies and the highest standards. This is one of the ways in which our commitment to continuous improvement is safeguarded. See it in action!
We commit to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and being a great neighbor in our global communities. We build a culture and working environment that is inclusive and respectful for all, and where our employees can do their best work and feel valued for their contributions. We also give back by investing in the environmental, health, educational and cultural goals of the communities where we operate. Together, with our employees and local community partners, we identify areas of greatest need where we can lend our support and leave a positive impact on our environment.
We commit to minimizing our corporate environmental footprint by implementing best practices and leading technologies to continuously reduce our energy and water consumption and our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change.
