Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors are integral to our business strategy. We’re committed to minimising our environmental footprint, fostering a positive workplace culture, and maintaining the highest ethical standards.
To ensure full integration of sustainability into our daily business operations we have developed a framework that formalises Interfood’s approach.This framework is a core element in focusing our efforts to deliver on our purpose and growth strategy.
Our sustainable solutions pillar prioritises the most significant source of greenhouse gases in our value chain: farm and farm inputs. It is focused on mapping and reducing farmand feed-level environmental impacts through industrywide cooperation. Challenges addressed include animal welfare, biodiversity, CO2 emissions,deforestation, and land and soil use.
Sustainable value chain
Our sustainable value chain pillar addresses the scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions materialising in other sections of our up- and downstream value chain. These include, emissions resulting from processing, warehousing, or transport. Other key priorities concern product quality and safety, and traceability and transparency throughout the value chain.
Our sustainable employer pillar focuses on our most important asset: our people. The Interfood team allows us to be the company we are today. In return, we aim to be a sustainable employer, ensuring a healthy, inclusive, and engaging work environment allowing the team to excel both personally and professionally.
Our sustainable operations pillar allows for business continuity. It concerns our licence to operate: upholding business ethics, ensuring data privacy and cybersecurity and diligent risk management. Additionally, it addresses not only scope 1 and scope 2 emissions, but also scope 3 emissions relating to our people: business travel and employee commuting.
Our sustainable society pillar aims to extend our impact beyond Interfood boundaries. This pillar represents our efforts to invest in a sustainable food sector, while contributing to societies and communities at large.
Sustainable Development Goals
Our business activities touch on many of thegoals either directly or indirectly, but we focusour efforts on the SDGs that align most closelywith our operational activities.
We are committed to improving sustainability in our own business, in that of our partners, and in the entire value chain and sector so we are thrilled to see our dedicated sustainability team growing, and sustainability increasingly integrated into our day-to-day activities.
