Agro Companies International sees Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as a force that drives us to go the extra mile and develop long-term relationships with all our stakeholders. Trust and quality are at the heart of the way we do business with our partners. These partners form an extensive ecosystem, encompassing first and foremost our employees, but also all our external third-party counterparts. CSR enables us to build strong, committed relationships with them, in order to extend the reach and impact of ethically, socially, environmentally and economically responsible practices, in our core business and beyond.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an independent international organization that has been pioneering sustainability reporting since 1997. It provides companies, governments and NGOs with standards that are now the most widely adopted internationally.
The Agro Companies International Group has also chosen to rely on GRI standards to boost its CSR performance and publish effective, easily quantifiable reports. Read our CSR Report to understand how, day after day, we integrate sustainable development into our activities.
The Agro Companies Group's activities stretch from West and Central Africa to Europe and North America. To ensure that all our stakeholders - executives, employees, partners and suppliers - respect our fundamental values and principles of sustainable development, we have published a Code of Conduct.
This Code is addressed to Agro Companies International and all its companies. It meets three objectives: to help our employees understand the importance of our values and respect them; to highlight the general rules that apply to our businesses; and, last but not least, to demonstrate our commitment to high ethical standards.
Health, Safety, Security and Environmental (HSSE) performance is core to The Agro Group’s history and ongoing development.
Therefore, we expect everybody working in the company, as well as any contractor, supplier, and business partner associated with The Agro Group to demonstrate a non-negotiable commitment to respecting HSSE-related national and international regulations and best-in class HSSE industry guidelines.
Our commitment to HSSE is expressed in our corporate HSSE policy which describes our HSSE principles, goals, and commitments as well as our overall HSSE management structure.
