COFCO International receives industry-leading Sustainalytics ESG score

GENEVA – COFCO International (HK) Ltd. has been recognised as a Sustainalytics 2023 Top-Rated ESG Company and ranked #2 out of over 100 companies in the Sustainalytics agriculture sub-industry group.

In June 2023, COFCO International (HK) Ltd., the parent company for COFCO International operations, has further improved its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risk Rating from Morningstar Sustainalytics, which measures a company’s exposure to, and management of ESG factors.

The Morningstar Sustainalytics score of 20.0 received in June categorises COFCO International (HK) Ltd. as “Low” risk, an improvement of 1.7 points from the previous year.

Improvements were mainly driven by advancements in the company’s emissions reporting, climate risk management, deforestation policy, biodiversity programmes and efforts to improve the carbon and water intensity of its operations.

This rating follows on from the publication of COFCO International’s sustainability report earlier this year, which discloses the company’s sustainability progress, opportunities for improvement, evolving challenges and future plans to achieve its goals.
