Segment ranking(s) summary

Bonduelle is active in the agricultural products and commodities and food and beverage manufacturers/processors segments. The company performs strongly when compared to its peers in both segments. Notably, it outperforms all its peers on soil health and optimal use of pesticides and fertilisers, demonstrating leadership in these aspects in the agricultural commodities sector. However, there is room to strengthen its position in environment in both segments by defining a time-bound target for water consumption reduction and enhancing its reporting on greenhouses gases (GHG) emissions. In nutrition, Bonduelle performs better than many of its peers in terms of transparent labelling and availability of healthy foods. However, it can strengthen its disclosure on these topics, thus aligning with the best practices. Finally, Bonduelle falls behind its peers in the social inclusion measurement area, representing a clear opportunity for improvement.
