2020 Sustainability Report

In this new reality, the need to transform our global food system remains more important than ever. As we intensify agricultural production to feed the growing population, we must also protect the climate, promote biodiversity and safeguard natural resources.

This, our latest annual sustainability report, covers our performance against the five strategic priorities of our sustainability strategy, Meeting Tomorrows’ Demand, and the collective effort made by our employees and partners towards cultivating a better future.

“Our business took decisive action in 2020 to keep our people safe and our supply chains moving, helping to promote global food security amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Importantly, we also maintained a strong focus on advancing our sustainability journey and strengthening the food system, as we strive to ensure the ongoing success of our business."

In 2020, we continued to act on the supply chain traceability, environmental, health and safety and resource efficiency and community priorities that matter most to our business and stakeholders.

We will retain a bold and ambitious outlook in the face of the work still required to fulfil our mission to feed the world responsibly.

David Dong, CEO of COFCO International
