We are proud to be part of Grupo Nutresa, recognized with the Gold Category in the S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook, after being distinguished in 2020 as the most sustainable food company in the world, according to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices.
The S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook is a publication that recognizes 15% of the best performing companies in sustainability in the world within each of the 61 industries that are part of the Dow Jones Indices.
To select the best practices, this publication is based on the Corporate Sustainability Assessment, which in turn is used for the development of the Dow Jones sustainability indices, based on an expanded base of eligible unlisted companies. In the end, 203 companies in the food sector from around the world were evaluated based on their corporate practices in the social, environmental, and economic dimensions.
The permanence in this evaluation after ten consecutive years – reaching the Bronze Class distinctions in 2012 and 2014, and Silver Class from 2015 to last year shows the commitment, leadership, and consistent work of Grupo Nutresa’s human team in the search for competitiveness and the implementation of the best sustainable practices. It is also a recognition of its corporate capacity to create value for society.
Carlos Ignacio Gallego, President of Grupo Nutresa, stated in this regard: “These results recognize the capacity of our organization to evolve in sustainability practices and also motivate us to remain firm in our conviction to promote sustainable development and make it central of the strategy, today more than ever, the care of people and the planet”.
The Gold Category distinction is given to companies with a score that places them among the 1% of the best performing companies in their sector. Grupo Nutresa obtained a total rating of 87.
According to the Corporate Sustainability Assessment, Grupo Nutresa led eleven corporate practices with superior performance associated with: materiality, risk and crisis management, information security and cybersecurity, tax strategy, and health and nutrition, in the economic dimension ; packaging, environmental report and risks associated with water, in the environmental dimension; and development of human capital, attraction and retention of talent, and social reporting, within the social dimension.
This reflects the company’s efforts to have an operation focused on caring for people, generating economic development and social progress, and with the least environmental impact.
