OUR SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

Lotus Bakeries’ sustainability strategy is based on three pillars:

  1. Our environment
  2. Our employees
  3. Our community1.

Within each pillar, specific targets and priorities are set to help realise our sustainability objectives. Consult our policies and reports on key sustainability topics to learn more about how we create sustainable and profitable growth.

 

Previously, within Lotus Bakeries, a distinction was made between ‘people’ on the one hand and ‘society’ on the other, but in view of the significant overlap between our objectives and priorities for both, we decided to combine these two pillars in 2020.

EnvironmentOur environment

We are committed to the environment and to help fight global warming.

In everything we do, we aim to reduce our ecological footprint:

  • We commit to only use recyclable packaging for all of our brands by 2025.
  • We already produce in a CO2-neutral way in our 12 factories.
  • We involve our employees in our drive to cut emissions.

We also make sure that our employees feel good and flourish at Lotus Bakeries. How? Via training, development and constant challenge. This way, the acquired know-how stays in the company sustainably.
