Sustainability

Attuned to people, nature and business

AGRANA believes sustainability means acting in an economically viable, sparingly and energy-efficient way, respecting both its internal and external stakeholders. In view of our commercial activities and the associated proximity to raw agricultural products, acting sustainably represents an integral part of AGRANA's business model. AGRANA also follows this integrated approach in sustainability reporting and therefore lists the key sustainability figures for its business activities in its Annual Report.
