The materiality process used to inform the content for our Sustainability Report 2017 elicited inputs from external stakeholders in a survey on the topics in Cargill’s sustainability strategy.

Over a period of two months, an online survey was taken by employees and external stakeholders, including suppliers and corporate responsibility, environment and governance professionals. We also held interviews with industry experts and nongovernment organizations. This structured stakeholder survey helped us to map our priority topics based on the three pillars of our strategy: 1. Nourish the world; 2. Protect our planet and 3. Enrich our communities. Learn more about our strategy in Sustainability management. GRI 102-40, 102-43

Our Corporate Affairs Department validated the most material topics and their disclosures against the company’s global standards, in a prioritizing exercise. Our businesses and functions each provided a list of their stakeholders, and Corporate Affairs then prepared a consolidated list of stakeholders to be surveyed for the materiality process.GRI 102-42
