Our Responsibility

Lantmännen’s business concept is to process farmland resources in an innovative and responsible way. Our knowledge of grain, presence along the entire value chain and long-term approach enables us to contribute to sustainable energy supply and food security.

It is ultimately about resolving the equation of 1 planet and 9 billion people in 2050. Resource management, climate change and food habits are the major challenges.  

Ensure responsibility, conserve resources, offer sustainable products.

At every stage from field to fork, we take responsibility for the impact our operations have on people and the environment, and we continue to develop products and services with sustainable added values. In the long term, our vision is to halve the environmental impact of the grain value chain compared with today, while creating increased profitability and growth from sustainable business.  

These efforts are fundamentally driven by the need to comply with requirements that legislation, our own Code of Conduct and the external environment impose on us. We also endeavour to use all types of resources as efficiently as possible in our processing activities. In sustainable business development, we focus on initiatives for sustainable cultivation, and on developing and offering products and services with clear added values for health and the environment.

Together

Much of the work takes place in dialogue and cooperation with suppliers, customers, consumers and other stakeholders. Together is a prerequisite for making a difference! Some examples of good cooperation include the Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS) and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) for sustainable soy and palm oil, and the Haga Initiative climate network.

On these pages we describe our work on responsibility from field to fork, with a focus on the issues that are most important for a sustainable and profitable Lantmännen.  These are areas that are particularly important to our customers, shareholders and other key stakeholders, and areas where our operations have significant impacts.
