Segment ranking summary

Active in the agricultural products and commodities and food and beverage manufacturers/processors segment, Blue Diamond Growers ranks at the bottom in both segments. The company performs poorly mainly due to a lack of disclosure. In environment and nutrition, Blue Diamond Growers discloses on relevant topics for the segments such as GHG emissions, fertilizer use, and food safety. However, its qualitative and quantitative evidence are insufficient compared to its industry peers and therefore it sits in the bottom half in both measurement areas. Furthermore, the company is among the weakest performers in both segments in the governance and strategy and social inclusion.
