Sustainability

Attuned to nature, people and business
 

We at AGRANA understand sustainability to mean acting in a commercially-prudent, resource-sensitive and energy-efficient manner while at the same time respecting the interests of internal and external stakeholders. Our business activities are closely interwoven with agriculture. Sustainable operations are therefore a cornerstone of our business model. As can be seen: Our main sustainability KPIs can be found in our Annual Report. Because sustainability at AGRANA is more than just a buzzword.
