Summary

Amaggi Group publicly discloses a number of commitments across all three dimensions. The company discloses commitments to high-risk commodities such as soya through its zero-deforestation progress report. It also discloses commitments to improve soil health and minimise fertiliser and pesticide use by implementing no-till practices, monitoring soil quality and adopting integrated pest management methods. While the company reports on its scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions, it is yet to set time-bound reduction targets. Furthermore, no evidence was found of commitments to minimise food loss and reduce plastic use and packaging waste. As an agricultural producer and trader, the company has less impact on nutrition issues compared to companies involved in the manufacturing of consumer products. It is committed to food safety through third-party certifications and internal audits but does not disclose a commitment to workforce nutrition. In the social inclusion dimension, the company is committed to eliminating child and forced labour in its supply chain and to improving the health and safety of its employees and workers. It also discloses its commitment to protect land tenure rights in its supply chain. However, it does not commit to paying a living wage or supporting smallholder productivity.
