Cargill Ocean Transportation Corporate Responsibility Report 2017
Times are changing, even for one of the world’s oldest and most traditional industries
Today, we find ourselves in a fast-paced, technology-driven and increasingly transparent environment, one that is full of opportunities for Cargill and our business partners.
We believe the emergence of this new era presents industry leaders with an opportunity to make shipping safer, more efficient and more sustainable. It allows us to work together in an effective and compliant way with mutual respect and inclusivity.
At Cargill, we are pleased with our performance in 2017. Most notably, we have improved the efficiency of our fleet, thereby reducing the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by 5.7 percent on a cargo-ton-mile basis. We have completed regular ethics and compliance training throughout our organization, and we have provided intercultural development training among our business leaders to prioritize diversity and inclusion.
In 2017, Cargill completed a materiality assessment specifically for its ocean transportation business. Through this assessment, we identified the core areas of our operations which have an effect on the environment, people and communities in which we operate. Cargill sought contributions from its customers, employees and management in this process.
