Our people are our most important asset and we work hard to build and maintain an inclusive workplace for our diverse team of over 40 nationalities. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan governs our approach to recruitment and talent development, managing the workplace environment, employee engagement and retention and health and wellbeing. We will continue to develop and retain the talent we need to help us mitigate the risks and leverage the opportunities associated with climate change.
We work hard to protect human rights in our supply chains and operations, and our Business and Supplier Codes of Conduct and policies are guided by the Ethical Trade Initiative Base Code. We are members of SEDEX and our sites undergo SMETA and Supplier Workplace Accountability Audits. Climate change is increasingly impacting vulnerable communities around the world and we will continue to collaborate with customers and partners through the Food Network for Ethical Trade, to address human rights risks where there is poor supply chain transparency.
We will continue to support our communities as we navigate the transition to a net zero future. We sponsor education and science to encourage innovation in sustainability and facilitate knowledge sharing with the farming community. We encourage employees to get involved in volunteering, fundraising, festivals and events, and our goal is to have a positive impact on the communities where we operate, source from and where our employees live.
Our Assurance and Collaboration
We invite external third-party oversight and verification of business policy, practice and performance, to provide confidence to our stakeholders.
We aim to take big steps to ensure our footprints are small in supporting our goal of transitioning to a net zero future.
