Sustainable development at Roquette
Sustainable Development enriches the strategy of the Roquette Group
In the respect of key environmental objectives, the Roquette Group, attentive to the well-being of individuals and populations, transforms plant-based raw materials in its biorefineries into solutions.
To achieve its ambition to “become the global leader in starches and their specialities with sustainable and health advantages”, the Group embraces a number of major challenges in terms of “sustainability”:
- Optimize the profitability and solidity of the company
- Limit the impact of the Group’s activities on the environment,
- Respond to the expectations of stakeholders (shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers…),
- Develop skills and adapt them to the orientations of the company in an international context...
The Roquette Group’s approach to Sustainable Development takes into account these different objectives and adopted engagements according to 4 types of capital:
This is made up of plant-based raw materials, the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, natural resources, water, air, the climate .…
Roquette Group’s engagement seeks to preserve the natural capital by minimizing the impact of its activities on the local and global environment, at every phase of its business.
Material and industrial capital
This is made up of everything related to the Group’s industrial plant & equipment, processes, R&D activities and investment capacity…
This is made up of all the men and women who bring the company to life and contribute to its adaptability, performance and dynamism.
This is made up of the society that surrounds the company as well as the stakeholders who are more specifically concerned by its activity and who evolve in that environment.
The Roquette Group’s approach to Sustainable Development aims to ensure the long-term viability of the company, which rests on the preservation and the development of these four capitals in equilibrium.
It also contributes to ensuring that the company remains a responsible company that responds to the expectations of its stakeholders.
