Response by Olam
Olam has put sustainability at the heart of our business. Conducting business in an ethical, socially responsible and environmentally sustainable manner is intrinsic to our company Purpose of Reimagining Global Agriculture and Food Systems. We are proud of our leadership to create and sustain living landscapes where prosperous farmers and growers, thriving rural communities, and healthy ecosystems can coexist.
We are committed to developing agricultural supply chains that protect forests and areas of high conservation value, eliminate unacceptable land use practices and respect people and human rights, where no children or adults are subject to illegal, forced or abusive labour practices.
Around the world we support activities that are delivering meaningful benefits to raise the incomes and livelihoods of farmers and their families; improve education, healthcare and social conditions for rural farming communities; support small-scale producers to adapt to climate change; and protect forests and areas of high conservation value. The development and roll-out of our AtSource sustainable sourcing solution is enabling us to leverage social and environment data from our supply chains to focus on transformative actions and create transparency for each stage of the supply chain journey.
We acknowledge there is still much work to do, and delivering real and lasting progress will require collaboration amongst a number of stakeholders. We continue to engage with governments, industry, civil society and communities as part of our commitment to make further progress.
