Nutreco launches its Sustainability Report

Nutreco's 2017 Sustainability Report, launched today, shows the company is on track with its 2020 targets. These targets, focused around the four pillars of ingredients, operations, nutritional solutions and commitment, are a key part of the company's sustainability programme Nuterra.

Sustainability is at the core of Nutreco's mission 'feeding the future'; the company's ambition to contribute to producing enough nutritious and high-quality food for a growing population in a sustainable way.

Nutreco CEO Knut Nesse says, "Our focus on sustainable nutrition innovation is clearly demonstrated in our 2017 Sustainability Report. The Report shows that we are making substantial and measurable progress to achieving our targets and to playing our part in resolving current and future global food challenges."

This year's Sustainability Report highlights four of the company's community development projects around the world supported by its global divisions Trouw Nutrition (animal nutrition) and Skretting (aquafeed). Corporate Sustainability Director Jose Villalon explains, "We are immensely proud of these projects as they help small, subsistence-level farmers raise their yield and livelihood through efficient and sustainable food production, thereby addressing economic poverty." Nutreco aims to have 10 such community development projects in operation across the world by 2020.

The 2017 Sustainability Report was drafted according to GRI Guidelines and illustrates Nutreco's continued commitment to the Global Compact and UN Sustainability Development Goals.
