Sustainability is a core element of our business model
We are passionate about creating fair and sustainable value, both for our business and for all value chain stakeholders: our people, our partners, the communities we touch and the environment around us.
Caring For People
LDC’s approximately 17,000 employees are active in more than 100 countries around the world. It’s our priority to ensure their safety, wellbeing and continued development, by promoting a work environment that encourages safe behaviors, respect for diversity and human rights, and equal opportunities to learn and grow.
Working with Partners
Recognizing that we can have a greater impact by working with others, we leverage our position as a leading agricultural merchant and processor to make a positive difference in our value chains, learning from, training and creating change with others through collaboration and partnerships.
Investing in Communities
We invest in the development and resilience of local communities living close to our operations around the world, encouraging our employees to support and volunteer in their communities, wherever they live and work.
Protecting the Environment
We are committed to helping sustain a growing population while respecting our planet’s finite natural resources.
To minimize the environmental impact of our activities, we continually monitor the way we operate to identify gaps, inefficiencies and opportunities for improvement along the value chain.
Responsible Supply Chain
Our highly committed teams work continually to boost sustainability within their respective value chains, leveraging our leading position to promote the adoption of our sustainability policies and standards among suppliers.
