LDC seeks to minimize any negative impact of its operational footprint by adopting and promoting sustainable practices.
As a responsible global company, we have a Code of Conduct that sets high standards for sustainability practices, and encourages business with providers, customers, partners and subcontractors who share the same values.
At LDC, we recognize that the success of our business depends not only on the availability of natural resources, but also the resilience of farming communities around the world.
Our Group Code of Conduct sets high standards for sustainability practices, and encourages business with providers, customers, partners and subcontractors who share the same standards and values.
Our partners, in turn, are also setting sustainability objectives and placing greater expectations on us.
We strive to meet these not only to reinforce business relationships, but because we believe that operating sustainably is the right thing to do – for our business, for our stakeholders and for our environment.
To structure our efforts across key areas for our work, we have developed an approach based on four pillars: People, Environment, Partners and Community.
We invest in the safety, wellbeing and professional development of our employees, promoting an inclusive environment that respects diversity in all its forms. We are committed to eliminating child and forced labor practices in our value chain.
We work hard to mitigate the impact of our operations on the environment, by adopting best practices that support conservation, protect biodiversity, use natural resources sparingly and minimize waste, emissions and pollution
We strive to build long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with the communities where we operate, working with them to develop programs and initiatives that address their needs as well as regional or global challenges and issues
We recognize that we have a greater impact by working with others. From farmers, suppliers and customers, to governments, industry peers and NGOs, LDC connects and works with a wide range of stakeholders to tackle pressing and global sustainability issues, aiming to find shared solutions to common challenges, for the benefit of everyone.
