Our approach

Our ESG agenda is shaped by the leaders within each of our businesses. Environmental and social challenges differ by business and geography, and local knowledge is vital to setting and implementing meaningful programmes and delivering for stakeholders. As such, our reporting reflects the diversity of our five business segments – Grocery, Ingredients, Agriculture, Sugar, Retail.



Our value chain


Our businesses set out their strategies and choose how best to address their most material ESG risks, opportunities and impacts at relevant points in their value chains.

Our material topics

All our businesses operate within a clear corporate responsibility governance framework.


Assessing and prioritising the most material environmental and social risks and opportunities starts with our businesses. 

Stakeholder engagement
