Our Corporate Social Responsibility approach

We are focusing our teams and resources to develop products, services and promoting the adoption of sustainable practices across the entire animal nutrition supply chain.

Sustainable Development Roadmap

Adisseo sustainable development strategic roadmap was developed in 2022. It encompasses the 3 dimensions of Sustainable Development: Environment, Social and Governance, and is updated every year.

Priorities updated in 2023 for the period 2023-2025:

  • Reduce our environmental footprint
  • Contribute to the reduction of the environmental footprint of our value chain
  • Ensure a responsible behavior towards employees, stakeholders and the society
  • Strengthen Adisseo Governance & Sustainable Development reporting.

The responsible care initiative

In 1990, Adisseo decided to support actively the “Responsible Care” initiative, in applying all its principles throughout the world. The “Responsible Care” initiative is a joint undertaking of the global chemical industry for the safe management of chemicals throughout their lifecycle, while promoting their role in improving quality of life and in contributing to sustainable development. This commitment is regularly renewed.

Our contribution towards the UN SDGs

Although, we are committed to the 17 SDGs, we are more particularly focusing our efforts towards SDGs 2, 8, 12 and 13 which are particularly relevant for Adisseo and on which we can provide a substancial contribution :

End hunger, achieve security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

We contribute to the development of resilient agricultural practices that have a positive impact on food Availability, Quality, Affordability, Safety and Sustainability

The current global food security situation is severe and complex, thus there is still a long way to go to achieve the “zero hunger” goal of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We will persist in open innovation through proteins alternatives, Industry 4.0 and disruptive ingredients to promote the growth, well-being and health of animals, helping eliminate poverty and achieving inclusive growth and agriculture sustainable development.
