BP Bunge Bioenergia, one of the largest sugarcane processors in Brazil, joins the United Nations (UN) Global Compact. The entity aims to mobilize the business community in the adoption and promotion of universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
With more than 17 thousand participants in almost 170 countries, the initiative has more than 1300 members in Brazil and its mission is to engage the private sector in the global SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) agenda, created in 2015 during the United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development.
“Since the company was founded, we have acted ethically, producing in a sustainable manner and fostering local development in the communities where we are present”, says Mario Lindenhayn, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of BP Bunge Bioenergia. “Adhering to the Global Compact is yet another step that reinforces our commitment to taking our business to increasingly sustainable levels, for the benefit of future generations”.
In 2021, BP Bunge released its ESG goals for the first 10 years of operation, “Our Commitments 2030”, organized into the pillars of Planet, People, Principles of Governance and Prosperity. In line with the company’s business strategy and the UN SDGs, the commitments are related to climate change, energy efficiency, biodiversity, human capital, and economic development.
