Responsible Agriculture Charter

We strive to be a world leader in the agriculture sector and to ensure that we do not contribute to deforestation and exploitation. We seek to achieve excellence in all our business engagements without compromising our commitment to improvements for people, planet and prosperity, which we recognise as the interdependent and mutually supportive foundations of sustainability. With the world’s population set to reach 9.7 billion in 2050, agricultural productivity has to increase. Most of the population growth will be in developing countries. We believe that agriculture has a role to play in alleviating poverty, but will not exploit this argument to allow the destruction of natural habitats and ecosystems on which future generations will depend for their livelihoods and well-being.
