As we find ourselves nearly halfway through the year already, I am pleased to share our sustainability newsletter and reflect on the progress we have made since our last update.
At Bunge, we believe that we can strengthen both food systems and climate together. We must face the realities of a changing climate while continuing to meet the needs the consumers and communities we serve.
As you’ll see in the newsletter and in the pages of our new 2023 Global Sustainability Report, we have made strides toward our Science Based Targets and our industry leading non-deforestation commitment, even as we grow our business in lower-carbon markets.
While these plans for our future sustainability work take shape, we continue to implement innovative new solutions that are strengthening our approach to fighting climate change. Our merger announcement with Viterra and recent agreements with Nutrien Ag Solutions and Corteva Agriscience will bring us closer to farmers and the point of origin. And with our new regenerative agriculture program to support Brazilian farmers, we are using our position to bring sustainable and socially responsible solutions to growers and customers.
