Our Approach

AGI is committed to sustainable business practices. Our mission statement reflects this: "Supply the world's food infrastructure, and in the process, enrich the lives of our employees, customers, and shareholders, and the communities of which we are a part."

In December 2020, AGI published its inaugural Sustainability Roadmap. This document describes our approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics and outlines our next steps, with a focus on high-priority ESG issues that matter most to our stakeholders.

A Message from President and CEO, Paul Householder


Governance for ESG

Our approach to sustainability oversight at AGI is aligned with best practices of other TSX-listed peers. The Governance and Sustainability (G&S) Committee of the Board serves as the lead for sustainability and ESG oversight with other Board committees providing support and oversight on certain topics where they have specific skills, expertise, and experience that can help steward progress on those areas most efficiently. Other Board committees include the Audit Committee as well as the Compensation and Human Resource (HRC) Committee.

The G&S Committee provides oversight of the strategies, policies, practices, and performance in relation to sustainability and key ESG topics, notably Worker Health & Safety, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions, Energy Use & Management, Water Efficiency & Recycling, among others. The HRC Committee provides oversight of the programs related to Diversity & Inclusion. The Audit Committee provides oversight of the Legal Risk Management and Ethical Conduct material topics.

This approach ensures that we are maximizing the skill set of our Board of Directors, promotes visibility across the full Board, and helps position AGI to effectively manage our sustainability program in the years ahead.
