2017 Sustainability Report

Meeting tomorrow’s demand - how we are building a world-class global agri-business committed to providing the food the world needs in a responsible way.

Welcome to our first sustainability report

By 2050, there will be over nine billion people living on our planet – almost two billion more than today. At the same time, pressure on agricultural land and natural resources is stretched to the limit. Against this backdrop, sustainability is defined as a core value of COFCO International. It forms an integral part of our business strategy, as we work to strengthen our direct commodity sourcing capacity in key producing countries and expand our presence in rapidly growing demand markets.

Supported by our Sunshine Culture, our new sustainability strategy guides us in our aim to become a world-class agri-business positioned to meet tomorrow’s demand. This report shows the progress we are making towards our vision – and the challenges we have encountered along the way.
