adm Group launches its Annual Sustainability Report

adm Group, a leading global marketing execution partner, today launched its annual Sustainability Report, detailing the company’s progress on priority sustainability issues impacting the company, its customers, and other stakeholders. 

adm’s corporate social responsibility vision is focused on transforming marketing activations to deliver sustainable brand execution, thereby protecting the planet and supporting human rights across the world. This vision exemplifies the Group’s commitment to the highest standards of environmental, social and governance (ESG), and to a more sustainable, diverse, and inclusive future. It is this continued pursuit of transforming marketing execution sustainably that has led us to achieve a Platinum rating from EcoVadis for the third consecutive year.  

Tom Hunter, Chief Sustainability Officer said, “We believe it is critical to focus on marketing sustainably, not just marketing sustainability. The challenge facing us all is huge, but it is unavoidable. At adm, we remain committed to taking actions that reduce our impact on the environment, protect human rights in the supply chain, and support our people across the globe. For us, it is about moving From Purpose to Impact now.” 

2022 was a significant year for adm’s sustainability program, which has been retitled “From Purpose to Impact” as the Group employs an action-orientated approach across the business to help deliver tangible improvements for its clients.  

Highlights from adm Group’s FY22 Sustainability Report include:
