Vision & Principles
Olam Vision Statement “Olam endeavours to generate economic prosperity, contribute positively to social welfare and manage our stewardship of the environment in a sustainable way, so as to ensure the creation of real long-term value for all.”
Olam Vision Statement
Our vision statement reflects our awareness of the need to give equal weight to the three pillars of sustainability - Economic Prosperity, Social Welfare and Environmental Stewardship. We have moved upstream into plantations and farming, as well as downstream into processing operations, whilst strengthening our core origination position. The expansion opportunities have given us the ability to take control of our environmental footprint including emissions, traceability and quality integrated throughout our supply chain.
We continue to be guided by the following:
Improving the livelihoods of farmers and communities in which we operate through initiatives that enhance productivity and returns
Ensuring a safe, healthy and productive workplace for our people and those who work in our operations
Forming alliances with partners who bring beneficial skills and knowledge to our business
Participating in professional associations at international and national levels to further develop our key goals
Understanding the impact of our operations on the environment through energy, carbon and freshwater footprint analysis
Assessing the impact of our initiatives on the communities and the workplace
We recognise that for our business to continue to flourish tomorrow, we need to manage the key challenges today.
