OUR SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

As today’s world is changing rapidly, we are faced with a range of new challenges in the business and along the value chain. We interact with many parties, so it is essential to get a full understanding of the impact of our operations and snacks on the world. In order to confirm or reconsider the priorities of our sustainability programme, Lotus Bakeries in 2023 performed a broad and in-depth assessment using the double materiality lens, reviewing a list of topics from both a financial and an impact materiality perspective.
