Our sustainability governance
Ensuring we deliver our Cargill Cocoa Promise
Our sustainability governance structure provides the lines of accountability that will ensure we deliver the commitments set out in our Cargill Cocoa Promise.
Our governance structure supports our business approach, which is to embed sustainability as a core element of our Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate business strategy and at all levels of our organization. Similarly, our governance structure is connected through our regional operational business, as well as through internal business functions with a sustainability role.
Our global Sustainability Steering Group provides strategic oversight of our sustainability strategy. This group is made up of our Director of Sustainability and other members of Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate’s Global Leadership Team. The group meets to review progress and assess next steps of our sustainability program. Ultimate responsibility for fulfilling our Cargill Cocoa Promise lies with our Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate President, Harold Poelma.
