Sustainability

Sustainability is a core element of our business model

We are passionate about creating fair and sustainable value, both for our business and the other value chain stakeholders: our people, our partners, the communities we touch and the environment around us

Caring for People

LDC’s approximately 18,000 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

Sustainability in Vietnam

LDC is committed to sustainable growth in Vietnam. As a responsible global citizen, we build sustainable practices into our business in collaboration with farmers, customers and peers, striving to contribute positively to the communities we work with.

Sustainable Land Management


In 2018 we announced the launch of a coffee sustainability project to benefit some 3,000 farmers, who produce approximately 18,000 tons of coffee annually from 4,800 hectares of land in Vietnam’s Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Gia Lai provinces, in the country’s coffee-producing Central Highlands region.

Run in partnership with global coffee and tea company, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, and leading agricultural solutions company Syngenta, the three-year project is training farmers in climate change resilience techniques, agro-chemical management and work safety.

The project follows a similar initiative by the three companies in 2016, which worked with another 3,000 farmers in the Central Highlands region. This brings the total number of beneficiary farmers to 6,000 for both projects combined.
