SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT - ECONOMIC, ECOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL
From the very beginning, we have structured our group of companies for sustainable development, using a social responsibility, life cycle approach that encompasses economic, ecological and social pillars.
Economic represents maximation of profitability, relative to available resources, Ecological is the interaction of organisms with the environment to maintain the diversity and resilience of biological and physical systems and Social is the identification and maintenance of equity and stability in social, community and cultural systems.
To ensure we continue to deliver on sustainability, ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) principles are embedded into every aspect of our decision making.
Our impact on the Environment is fundamental to our choice of the raw materials that we use in our products. We are committed to finding innovative solutions to the processes and technologies for developing new eco-friendly materials.
Social includes the welfare of our employees and suppliers along our supply chains and within the communities in which we work.
Our corporate Governance represents our identified purpose, “to bring together farming, innovation and sustainability to impact the world”. This is embodied in our policy making, management structures and relationships with all stakeholders including customers, suppliers and the community.
This corporate Life Cycle Approach for sustainable development fits perfectly with our circular economic business model and the Life Cycle Assessment process we are dedicated to for assessing all our products, from raw material resources, materials processing, through product manufacturing, packaging and distribution, use and end of life.
