Segment ranking summary

Lotte Corporation ranks 38th among food retailers, 70th in the agricultural products and commodities and 127th among food and beverage processors. The positions reflect the company’s performance in the benchmark, whereby it is currently lagging against its peers due to limited disclosure across the measurement areas. In nutrition, while the company performs well on food safety, it lags it peers when disclosing on efforts to promote the availability, accessibility and affordability of healthy foods. Similarly, Lotte Corporation’s disclosure on environmental topics is limited, with poor disclosure on issues such as animal welfare and sustainable sourcing practices, areas its peers have already started addressing. Nonetheless, the company’s sustainable development strategy reporting is comprehensive, highlighting that there is an opportunity for the company to translate its overall sustainability strategy into practice across the other measurement areas in order to improve its performance going forward.
