Embracing Responsibility

The way we look at ESG is this: it is our way of doing business—enabling people to reach their full potential in order to meet long-term business goals that are socially and environmentally responsible. Our approach carries an authentic energy, because we don’t view ESG as a task, but an enabler.

In 2020, we formalized our ESG Charter, as well as our ESG Executive Committee and team of ESG Champions. Our members not only represent the functions in our organization most relevant to our impacts, but are individuals who are truly passionate about delivering against our goals.

With our values and purpose as our guides, we have identified our most important, mission relevant ESG areas. We are gaining traction across our entire value chain, building accountability, establishing teams, clarifying deliverables and identifying the steps and initiatives that will help us set and meet meaningful, achievable goals.

It is a responsibility that permeates our entire company and binds together our naturally diverse team of almost 40 cultures, languages and countries of origin represented by our Associates, who describe SK Food Group as this: One Team. No Borders.
