20-Sustainability  Our Mission

Our Mission

Sustainability is an integral part of our company’s overall strategy. This can be seen in the way we run our business, where we choose to build our factories, how we manage and distribute our products, the integrity of our foods, our approach to our employees and to the communities we operate in and in our concern for the environment. We believe that by continuously integrating these aspects, we will achieve long-term financial benefits for our shareholders.

Our sustainability mission is to continuously improve and balance our economic, environmental and social performance.

Sustainability approach

Pioneer Foods’ long-term success requires sustainable business practices in three fundamental ways:

  1. The Group is reliant on agriculture, therefore environmental issues such as climate change, energy consumption and water management have a direct impact on operations and profitability
  2. The Group depends on the current and future availability of human capital and skills
  3. The Group produces food for general consumption and therefore has a responsibility to ensure its products are beneficial and nutritious

Added to these three fundamental business drivers, the Group maintains its commitment to the broader community through several corporate social investment (CSI) initiatives. Pioneer Foods’ future success is directly connected to its contribution to socio-economic development. Therefore, transformation across all levels of the business is a key consideration for the Group.

In 2014 the Group opted to report in line with the core sustainability indicators of the new Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines - view the full GRI Index table (PDF - 11.9 MB)
