Segment ranking summary

Ezaki Glico ranks 86th in the agricultural products and commodities segment and 145th among food and beverage processors. Ezaki Glico is in the lower grouping in both segments, suggesting there is room for improvement across the board. In environment, Ezaki Glico could improve its ranking by disclosing quantitative information and time bound targets on key topics, such as water use and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, approaches its peers have already started doing. Moreover, the company discloses little in social inclusion, with a lack of disclosure on its monitoring systems on key topics such as health and safety or child and forced labour, areas higher ranking peers already disclose on. Nonetheless, the company performs relatively better in governance and strategy, with some disclosure on its sustainability strategy and governance framework, highlighting there is an opportunity for the company to translate its overall sustainability strategy into practice across the three measurement areas.
