About Olam Sustainability:

Olam’s global Sustainability team is guided by a shared CR&S function, who ensure that Olam’s businesses meet their commitments to re-imagine global agriculture, fostering prosperous farmers and thriving communities, and regenerating the living world. They do this by building sustainability as a business driver into Olam’s unique combination of capabilities, which include close access to farmers, dynamic alliances and partnerships, innovative business models, and digitally enabled platforms for farmers and suppliers, supply chain management, and customer services.

This includes the creation of AtSource, the industry-leading sustainability platform for agricultural supply chains, which generates insights and enables positive action, based on a comprehensive and granular framework of environmental and social metrics, collected from hundreds of thousands of farms.

The CR&S Function at Olam is sponsored by the Group CEO, Sunny Verghese, and driven by employees, partners and communities to deliver their 3 major outcomes:

  • Prosperous Farmers & Food Systems

  • Re-designing farming and food value chains so that all players profit fairly from their work

    Thriving Communities

    • Re-vitalising rural communities so that the people who produce food, feed and fibre can live well

    • Regeneration of the Living World

    • Regenerating nature, to restore the balance between agriculture and ecosystems in living landscapes
