Joining forces to create more responsible businesses through partnerships and alliances with other companies
We believe that working in partnership with other companies will help us create a more responsible business. These partnerships take place in inter-professional organizations such as Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI) which is a global food chain initiative for sustainable agriculture.
To support the efforts of poor rural communities in developing countries who are restoring their natural ecosystems, the Livelihoods Fund gathered nine partner companies, including Danone: Schneider Electric, Crédit Agricole, Michelin, Hermès, SAP, CDC Climat, La Poste, Firmenich and Voyageurs du Monde. In 2015, this successful fund was extended to sustainably transform company supply chains while supporting smallholder farmers: Danone and Mars created Livelihoods Fund for Family Farming recently welcomed Firmenich and Veolia and is open to new partners able to extend the benefits further.
Danone also builds innovative global alliances with strategic partners, such as Veolia, to focus on natural resource management in order to meet the challenge of climate change.
