Louis Dreyfus Making Progress In Sustainability


ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS — Louis Dreyfus Co. (LDC) on June 17 published its 2018 Sustainability Report, highlighting the breadth and depth of actions to embed sustainable practices across its activities and engage with partners to do the same.

“I am pleased with the progress we are making and the outcomes we are achieving,” commented Ian McIntosh, LDC’s Group CEO. “By integrating our long-standing sustainability efforts with the company’s purpose of fair and sustainable value creation, we continue to break new ground and build positive momentum across the agricultural supply chain”

The company first published its Soy Sustainability Policy in June 2018. It was shared with its major suppliers and is being built into all supplier contracts. The policy consolidates LDC’s existing actions and commitments, including as one of the founding signatories of the 2006 Soy Moratorium in Brazil. The initiative was described by The Nature Conservancy as “the first move by a major trader toward a zero-conversion approach.”
