We play a positive role in the lives of local communities in over 100 countries.
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.
Global Vision, Local Action
At LDC, we empower our people everywhere to create positive change in the local communities where we operate.
Working with local experts, we want to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals related to education, climate change, poverty, health and life on earth.
We do this by creating jobs, protecting the environment, training farming communities and supporting health and education projects.
Our people are encouraged to propose initiatives for local action, and to submit projects for support from the Louis Dreyfus Foundation.

Recent projects illustrate our ongoing commitment to support local communities connected with our operations and activities around the world:
