We implement innovative solutions to minimize our environmental footprint and support projects and activities that strengthen our approach to fighting climate change.
With over a decade of achievements reducing our environmental footprint, and by building climate-related risks and opportunities into our strategy and operations, we are committed to supporting the development of the global food system and enhancing the resilience of our value chains for years to come.
Since 2008, Bunge has maintained annual targets to reduce our company’s environmental footprint. Our new environmental goals, established in 2016 with a 2026 deadline, underscore our commitment to being responsible stewards of local ecosystems while helping to meet the global community’s actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Bunge measures and assesses the indirect emissions footprint of our global value chains, known as Scope 3 emissions. The majority of these emissions appear in the supply chain, and are generally out of a company’s direct control. Nevertheless, by measuring and disclosing our Scope 3 emissions, we can begin to find solutions that improve our environmental performance and create more sustainable value chains, while contributing to global efforts to fight climate change.
Learn more about Bunge's Scope 3 approach and other details in our 2020 Global Sustainability Report.
Understanding climate risks
Climate-related effects – which present both risks and opportunities for Bunge and the communities we serve – could also enable our teams to leverage our global asset network to meet demand in times of shortages.
Climate-related risks and opportunities are regularly assessed by our teams, and are overseen by our Board of Directors, to inform decision-making and business planning. You can learn more about climate risks and opportunities outlined in our Annual Report or in our CDP disclosures.
