The first choice for value-adding vegetable oil solutions Responsible growth At AAK, sustainable development is fundamental to our business. Hand in hand with financial growth, social and environmental responsibility is key to our continued development and future success. This is what we mean by “responsible growth”. We believe that building sustainability into our everyday activities helps us achieve our vision of being the first choice in value-adding vegetable oil solutions. AAK’s model for responsible growth covers the five focus areas Marketplace, Supply chain, Environment, Workplace and Community. Global team effort The annual production and release of our GRI Report is a global team effort involving staff from various functions at all sites. In line with this, our Sustainability Report is a global team achievement that includes statements, initiatives, projects and views from the entire organization. In addition, it documents – for both stakeholders and ourselves – that Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is firmly anchored within our organization. Scope This report covers AAK’s entire organization, including production plants, administrative offices, sales offices, innovation centers, and sourcing operations. The environmental data is restricted to the production plants. The 2014 acquisitions of the Belgian oils and fats business CSM Benelux NV in Merksem and Fábrica Nacional de Grasas S.A. (FANAGRA) in Colombia are included in this report. Data from our Brazilian factory in Jundiaí, São Paulo, whose production started in April 2015, and our factory in Zhangjiagang, China, which is scheduled to be up and running in late 2016, are not included. Similarly, data from acquisitions and partnerships established in Belgium, India, Japan, and USA during 2015 and 2016, are not included. Throughout the report, AAK colleagues share stories about some of our many CSR initiatives. Top managers also share their thoughts and insights in relation to their specific areas of responsibility. This report aims at providing a clear picture of how we at AAK work with sustainability – our drive towards responsible growth. This report is available in English and Swedish.
