Segment ranking summary

Active in the agricultural products and commodities segment, De Heus performs below average compared to its peers. Due to its lack of disclosure, the company is among the weakest performers in governance and strategy and social inclusion. In environment, it has an opportunity to align with its peers by setting targets to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adopt sustainable sourcing practices for its high-risk commodities. In the nutrition measurement area, food safety and availability of healthy foods appear to be mature topics among the majority of the companies assessed in the segment. Therefore, there is room for De Heus to improve its reporting on the adoption of food safety certifications and define its contributions to address food security.
