2018 Sustainability Report

As a rapidly-growing international agri-business, meeting rising demand for food in a sustainable way is key to our purpose.

Progress in partnership

In this second report, we are happy to report steady progress against our own priorities and to share our collaborative efforts to address systemic challenges.

In 2018, we worked side-by-side with governments, civil society organisations and industry peers, together forging a path towards more resilient and sustainable food systems.

We may be in the early stages of our sustainability journey but there is great potential and opportunity for rapid progress when working as a team – with one another and with trusted partners.

Looking ahead, we will maintain our focus on executing  a business strategy with sustainability at its heart.
