DLG is a Danish cooperative segmented into three main business areas; agribusiness, involving crop production and animal nutrition; premix and nutrition activities, and energy and retail. Through the agribusiness branch, DLG purchases and sells crops such as grains, rapeseed, soya and maize, and produces animal feed and supplements for pigs, cattle and poultry. With 17 factories across Europe and China, DLG is one of the largest producers of vitamins and minerals for livestock in Europe, all of which are marketed under the group's Vilofoss brand. Germany is the cooperative's largest market, accounting for approximately 60% of DLG's revenue.
DLG Group is active in the agricultural products and commodities and agricultural inputs segments. The company performs below average compared to its peers due to its lack of sufficient commitments setting out its approach to human rights in the social inclusion measurement area. In the environment measurement area, DLG Group demonstrates an average performance on GHG emissions, soil health and protection of terrestrial natural ecosystems in both segments. However, it lags behind its peers in terms of setting time-bound commitments towards these topics. In governance and strategy, DLG has met the minimum requirements but has room to improve its disclosure in order to align with the leading performers.
