Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Our food emulsifiers support more efficient, more affordable and less wasteful production processes.
Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
We believe food emulsifiers have a positive role to play in fighting lifestyle diseases by improving the nutritional profile of food while avoiding undesirable ingredients.
A robust food quality and safety system means we provide safe food ingredients, ultimately protecting the health of consumers.
The health and well-being of our employees is also very important to us. In 2017, employee satisfaction and motivation improved from previous years.
Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Our Responsible Sourcing Programme requires that suppliers provide good working conditions for their workers. We have production sites all over the world, promoting local and inclusive work opportunities. Our raw materials are sourced from suppliers that align with principles supporting human rights and fair trade. We emphasise fair working conditions for plantation staff, and the well-being of individuals and communities affected by growers and mills. For example, the palm oil sourced for our Danish production site is RSPO SG-certified.
Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
We responsibly handle, optimise and transparently report on carbon emissions, energy consumption, waste water emissions and raw material consumption.
We support sustainable production and protect natural resources by being at the forefront of sustainable palm oil and palm oil-based ingredients sourcing – and in encouraging others to learn from our know-how.
We help to prolong the shelf-life and quality perceptions of consumer products, reducing food waste.
Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Over the past 10 years, we have reduced our carbon emissions year after year. Today, most of our production is carbon neutral and we are on track to achieve carbon neutrality for all our production entities in 2020.
Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
We do not tolerate bribery and corruption, providing anti-corruption guidelines to suppliers and selected employees. We remain transparent in our operations and reporting through memberships of the UNGC, GRI, Sedex and other institutions.
