We promote sustainable agriculture and implement robust projects that protect and improve the environment, while supporting the social and economic well-being of growers and local communities.

 

Deforestation-free supply chains

Since 2015, Bunge has developed and implemented an industry-leading commitment to eliminate deforestation from all our supply chains by 2025. This commitment extends to our direct and indirect sourcing, and is applied throughout the company’s planning, investments and operations.

We aim to employ science-based definitions and cutoff dates for deforestation determined by credible multi-stakeholder processes, and we support the efforts of our partners willing to engage with this commitment. This criteria is applied to our supply chains where deforestation is considered a high risk, including our South America soybean and the Southeast Asia palm oil supply chains.

Promoting decent work, human rights, and good farmer livelihoods

Bunge’s global labor policy commits us to maintaining a healthy and safe work environment for all of our employees and contractors.

In addition, we strive to root out all cases of human rights abuses in our value chains by upholding strict standards of compliance, from local and internationally-recognized conventions, to projects and activities that root out cases of abuse. Our operations and employees must comply with all applicable local laws, rules and regulations.

More information about our approach to human rights and decent work at Bunge can be found in our global labor policy.

Partnerships and projects

Bunge is committed to building responsible supply chains, and believe if we do, the impact on the ground will be tangible. We also recognize the important role we can play in encouraging a broader transition to more sustainable industry, and we will work with partners and stakeholders to advance leading standards and develop practical approaches to realize them at scale.

Examples of recent action on the ground and engagement with our stakeholders can be found in the partnerships and projects.
