Danisco is one of nine leaders of the DJSI World Index Food Producer sector this year and continues its inclusion as a member for the ninth consecutive year.
 
The inclusion is based on Sustainable Asset Management’s (SAM) thorough analysis of corporate economic, environmental and social performance and assessing issues such as corporate governance, risk management, branding, climate change mitigation, supply chain standards and labor practices.
 
SAM, an investment boutique focused exclusively on sustainability investing, together with Dow Jones Indexes, a leading global index provider, compiled the results of the 2010 annual review for the DJSI.
 
“Inclusion in the DJSI among the field of notable sustainability performers in the food producer sector is an honor as the members, like Danisco, have embedded sustainability into their business models as a driver of innovation and growth,” says Jeffrey Hogue, vice president of corporate sustainability for the Denmark-based company. “The SAM questionnaire is one of our key stakeholder inputs and is used, aside from inclusion in the DJSI, as an important tool to inform about our sustainability strategies around sustainable sourcing, operational efficiency leadership and sustainable innovation and product offerings.”
 
In the past year, Danisco has reinvigorated its sustainability strategies to address value chain impacts, risks and opportunities. In addition, Danisco has focused successfully on a holistic approach around the reduction of its own environmental footprint and on providing sustainable solutions for its customers and consumers.
 
Danisco is committed to developing solutions to address global challenges in food and health through innovation and product platforms that improve food security, minimize food waste and improve health and nutrition.
