Determining Materiality

Part of the process of determining our material issues involves reaching out to stakeholders, directly and indirectly, to find out what is most important to them with regard to Bunge and our operations.

For the 2017 reporting period, our materiality process was informed by feedback from investors; banks and other financial institutions; customers; suppliers; industry associations; nongovernmental organizations; governmental agencies; and our direct employees. Our stakeholder approach was supplemented by findings from Datamaran, a data-driven materiality assessment process that analyzed information from industry peers, social media and traditional media to identify material issues for our company.

Based on the feedback received from stakeholders throughout the year, through direct or indirect communications, we determined which topics were most material to our sustainability reporting. Engagement occurs throughout the calendar year, through e-mail, toll-free numbers, community meetings, social media, industry associations, roundtables and other direct interactions with all stakeholders who wish to engage with us.
