We took the decision to report using the Global Reporting Initiative framework for the first time in 2012. One of the world’s most prevalent standards for sustainability reporting, GRI promotes transparency and good governance. We need to measure and analyse our data in order to assess our impacts across the economic, environmental and social parameters. In addition we have set ourselves meaningful targets over the last two years as we undertake this journey.
This reporting structure for Olam is complex, covering 20 products across 16 platforms sourced and marketed in over 65 countries. These countries handle every step of the value chain from seed to shelf. We intend to build on this platform in order to deliver the necessary steps to pioneer sustainable supply chains by 2020 which we describe as the Olam Sustainability Standard.
Here you will find our GRI Level C response to demonstrate our report application level.
