Together, making zero carbon shipping a reality
Cargill Ocean Transportation Sustainability Report 2020
Sustainable shipping not only drives our ocean transportation business, it’s our purpose. We’ve committed to making zero carbon shipping a reality. Every day and in everything we do, we’re working to make shipping safer, greener and more responsible - both across our operations and the wider maritime industry.
Our sustainability strategy is aligned with the U.N. Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs). Since 2017 we have focused on six priorities, identified through a comprehensive materiality assessment:
- People, safety and well-being
- Climate change and health
- Inclusion and diversity in our workforce
- Ocean health and biodiversity
- Ethical business conduct and compliance
- Ship recycling
We have reported on our progress against these six priorities for the last four years, producing an annual Sustainability Report specifically for our ocean transportation business. You can find the most recent version here which reports on our activities throughout 2020.
The latest report takes us to the end of our 2020 targets. We have not met all our targets and recognize there is still a lot to be done, but we are energized by the progress achieved and are both optimistic and excited about what lies ahead.
A new materiality assessment will be conducted in 2021 and we will align our new goals and sustainability priorities with the maritime industry’s targets and Cargill’s corporate commitments.
