adm commits to world’s biggest CSR initiative

adm Group has recently submitted its annual Communication on Progress (CoP) to the UN Global Compact – the world’s largest CSR initiative. Since 2016, adm has been committed to the UN’s corporate responsibility initiative and its ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

Last year, adm highlighted the importance of its partnership with the UNGC by becoming an annual donating participant. This allows adm to play a role in funding UNGC’s projects as well as attending meetings with other UNGC participating companies to share initiatives on innovation and sustainability.

The CoP includes a statement form Justin Barton, CEO at adm Group:

This is our third year submitting our Communication of Progress (CoP) to the UNGC, and I am pleased to confirm that adm Group continues its support of the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-Corruption. In this annual CoP, we describe our actions to continually improve the integration of the Global Compact’s Ten Principles into our business strategy, culture and daily operations.

adm has made significant progress over the last 12 months to become a more sustainable and responsible business. Notable initiatives include donating IT hardware, educational programmes and continued long-term support to vulnerable young girls in Mexico, the development of our tree-planting programme and receiving further recognition for our sustainable supply chain practices.
