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.
Our approach to sustainability oversight at AGI is aligned with best practices of other TSX-listed peers. The Governance, Sustainability, and Social Responsibility (GSSR) Committee of the Board serves as the lead for sustainability and ESG oversight, with other Board committees providing support 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, the Compensation and Human Resource (HRC) Committee, and the Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Committee.
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.
