Segment ranking summary

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.
