Segment ranking summary

GrainCorp ranks 76th in the agricultural products and commodities segment. The company performs slightly better than its peers in the governance and strategy measurement area, as it has linked board level remuneration to the achievement of sustainability objectives. In the environment measurement area the company performs slightly worse than its peers as it lacks disclosure on topics crucial to the segment such as soil health and fertiliser and pesticide use. The company lacks disclosure on any nutrition topics, for example GrainCorp does not disclose a commitment to increase the availability and accessibility of healthy foods. While the agricultural commodities sector arguably does not have a direct impact on nutrition, the company is outperformed by many of its peers on this topic. The company performs best relative to peers in the social inclusion measurement area. The company could improve by disclosing on topics such as land rights, farmer productivity and the health and safety of vulnerable groups.
