Global Sustainability Positioning
It is with this in mind that we launched, in 2017, our Global Sustainability Positioning. The objective is to provide clarity and transparency on our sustainability strategy to all stakeholders. We also want to deepen the synergy of our operations around the world, keeping them in line with the company’s Mission, Vision and Values, as well as the organization’s business plan.
Our positioning is based on the following principles:
Based on the Global Sustainability Positioning, the Sustainability Plan with Vision was created. Organized into four strategic blocks – Improving governance and management; Promoting a sustainable value chain; Growing with the locality; and Innovating products and sustainable solutions – that address current issues for AMAGGI and our stakeholders, including current materiality issues.
In 2019, in order to update and deepen priority themes and our sustainability challenges, we promoted a general review of the Sustainability Plan with Vision, with the participation of leaders from various areas within the company and consultations with several other internal and external stakeholders, in parallel with the materiality review.
In this process, by seeking greater clarity, we updated our commitments within each of the four strategic blocks and repositioned our performance in relation to some of the themes, taking into consideration our initiatives, investments and the most relevant trends for the business.
