Governance

Integrating sustainability into the operations of an agribusiness and food company is imperative in today’s business environment, and sustainability has become one of Bunge’s strategic pillars for the operations globally. It's also the right thing to do — for the environment, for our customers and consumers and for the industry as a whole.

Our commitment to being responsible corporate citizens starts at the very top of the organization. Our Board-level Sustainability and Corporate Responsibility Committee is our highest governance body. It oversees the development of relevant corporate social responsibility policies, strategies and programs, including performance goals, risk management and disclosure. The complete text of the Committee’s charter can be found here.

At an executive level, sustainability is led by the Senior Vice President of Sustainability & Government Affairs. Safety and environmental performance in Bunge facilities is handled by the global productivity, quality, safety and environment group.

Our sustainability approach follows four clear principles:

  • We contribute to the economic and social development of the communities where we work.
  • We aim for good environmental performance by adopting and promoting proven, culturally sensitive and pragmatic best practices.
  • We partner with others to promote and apply sustainable practices.
  • We communicate openly.

Communicating Openly

Our commitment to transparency is reflected in our ongoing engagement with our stakeholders, which informed our most recent materiality assessment. Engagement with our stakeholders is a key part of Bunge’s sustainability vision, and takes place throughout the year. Our strategies, projects and goals are informed by the interaction with these groups. We value the inputs received, and diligently seek to enhance our own operations and policies in line with stakeholder expectations.
