Sustainability is part of Marfrig Global Foods’ business strategy. To be sustainable, a company must balance its economic, social and environmental performance. In order to meet this objective, the Company maintains the continuous strengthening of the pillars it has established. They permeate all divisions and units and are a reference for the development of actions, which, together, promote and ensure the sustainability of the entire productive system.
Marfrig’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in its business strategy and in the partnerships and commitments assumed by the Company with renowned and recognized organizations in the social and environmental areas.
In 2017 Marfrig Global Foods defined strategic themes related to sustainable performance: financial stabilization, followed by reduction of indebtedness; transparency; compliance; efficiency in processes; and sustainable production. This management approach translates into pioneering actions in the sector, aimed at promoting socially and environmentally fair, inclusive and ethical growth. It also encompasses the care of the quality and safety of food, which are essential to the success of the business and its continuity.
The Company’s corporate governance principles, which are based on best practices in relation to transparency, accountability and fairness in the treatment of all shareholders, as well as complying with the requirements set forth in the BM & FBOVESPA New Market (Novo Mercado da BM&FBOVESPA) regulation, are also fundamental.
