ASR Group response

At ASR Group, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Operational Sustainability are key business platforms that contribute to our global growth and help us manage our actions in a lawful and ethical manner... We are unwavering in the demand that our suppliers abide by our Ethical Sourcing Policy (ESP) and Supplier Code of Conduct... We work to ensure that the sugar we buy is produced and delivered under conditions that uphold fundamental human rights, minimize negative impacts on the environment and improve the well-being of farmers, including smallholders and women... In order to ensure compliance, we have instituted 3rd-party, independent social auditing of our suppliers... Audits help us monitor progress in these areas, identify where non-conformity exists, and work with our stakeholders to rectify them... We have performed verification audits of our suppliers in Brazil, and the independent auditors have not found evidence of the non-compliance being alleged.
