Honesty and accountability constitute our ethical foundation and are essential to the company’s processes and day-to-day operations.
Sustainability in Agra
Since the very beginning in 1885, it has been important for us at Agra to operate responsibly, in a way that has positive impact on society and the environment.
Today we call this our sustainability work.
Through our companies Stryhn’s, Foodmark and Mills, we will continue to contribute to solving local and global challenges, especially in areas where we can have a major impact. We use the UN Sustainable Development Goals* as a framework for our sustainability strategy. Each company has chosen the goals that are most critical to their operations and that they can have an impact on through the products they sell, their production processes and their supply chain.
*In September 2015, 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted 17 sustainability goals on behalf of the world. The goals serve as a common universal framework for states, business activities and civil society.
