A sustainable business
We signed the UN Global Compact in July 2012 when Nordzucker signed the international programme. This means that we have committed ourselves to adapting our activities and strategies so they comply with the 10 principles of the Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We see our signature as an important and very natural step in our efforts to continue integrating sustainability in our business.
Since 2012, we have been a member of Bonsucro, which has created an international certification standard that aims to improve social, environmental and financially sustainable aspects of sugar cane growing.
We follow the recommendations of the German Corporate Governance Code and regularly reports on our performance.
We run our business in accordance with our own Code of Conduct and the Corporate Social Responsibility Code (CSR/Code of Conduct) of the European sugar industry and expect all our cooperation partners to do the same.
Our expectations to our suppliers are expressed in our Supplier Code of Conduct .
