Copersucar is a global trader of sugar and ethanol, with integrated logistics throughout its entire value chain. Founded in 1959 in the state of São Paulo under the name Central Cooperative, Copersucar is now one of the largest traders of sugar and ethanol in the world, with a annual production capacity of over 10 billion litres of ethanol. It maintains a large domestic market share, which continues to grow. Copersucar key subsidiaries include Eco-Energy and Alvean, the latter being a joint venture with Cargill.
The company ranks in the middle of its peers in the agricultural products and commodities segment, which is an overall low-performing segment in the benchmark. While the company discloses some qualitative information and has identified and prioritised the topics where it can have the most impact, it demonstrates very poor performance in the social inclusion dimension, and below average performance across the nutrition and environment measurement areas.
