Global mind, local champions – growing a sustainable future

The world we operate in is changing fast. Our role is to make sure our future development supports both our long-term success and the sustainability of the communities where we operate

 

Our track record shows that we understand that sustainability is key to our future success. 

We must continue to safeguard the people, the resources and the relationships that have built our business so far. 

To find new solutions to the challenges we face, we need to draw on everything we have learned in many decades as a sugar producer across three continents.

our three pillars of sustainability

Sustainability means many things to many people. We define it as ‘building a stronger future by using the economic, rural, environmental and social opportunities to create long-term stakeholder value while safeguarding the needs of the next generation'.

For us, sustainability is economic, social and environmental. These three pillars set out the areas where our knowledge and resources enable us to make a positive change. They represent the issues that matter most to us, to our stakeholders and to the communities where we operate. Together, these three pillars give structure, direction and unity to all our sustainability efforts.
