Olam believes that sustainability should sit at the heart of the business. It is one of four key enablers to deliver our Strategic Plan.

    We report against our sustainability goals in our Annual Reports and use the Global Reporting Initiative as a guidance framework. We also endeavour to incorporate stakeholder focus areas.

    We take a Capitals approach, reporting under Manufactured, Human, Social, Natural, Intangible and Intellectual Capital. Our Finance for Sustainability Function (F4S) has also developed the Olam Integrated Impact Statement (IIS) – a tool for multi-capital accounting. In 2019, F4S developed the IIS for the Cocoa business to support their Cocoa Compass sustainability strategy. 

    Reporting Against Others’ Initiatives

    In addition to annual reporting, we also report against other initiatives such as CDP and product specific initiatives such as Cocoa and Forests’ Initiative as well as being signatories to the ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.
