Making a real commitment
For a company to be truly successful and sustainable, it must be run in a way that respects the planet and humankind. As a key global player in the field of fermentation, we strive to uphold this standard every day. With over a century of experience behind us, we are in the unique position to spur on real change within our industry. In everything we do, on every continent around the world, we are driven by a tradition of social and environmental responsibility. Our company has always been dedicated to nourishing and protecting the health and wellbeing of as many people as possible, while preserving the natural resources around us.
We set clear objectives when it comes to protecting the environment. For example, 15% of our industrial spend is dedicated to actions that reduce our environmental footprint, and we allocate 20-30% of our investments in building new factories to environmental protection initiatives. As a company, we have also committed to achieving some of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are focused on quality education (SDG 4), clean water and sanitation (SDG 6), sustainable consumption and production (SDG 12), and climate action (SDG 13).
