The global Covid-19 crisis revealed the powerful role that business can play in society. To reaffirm and amplify that role, companies must strike the right balance between managing their own impact and performance, and looking outwards to rally stakeholders and civil society behind a shared vision of positive transformation.
This is why Danone chose to become the first listed company to adopt France’s new Entreprise à Mission (purpose-driven company) status, which requires us to pursue a purpose and objectives that benefit society and the environment (forming our ‘Mission’).
Our purpose, first formulated in 2005, is “to bring health through food to as many people as possible”.
The social and environmental objectives that make up our mission are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and cover four dimensions:
- Impact people’s health locally
- Preserve and renew the planet’s resources
- Entrust Danone’s people to create new futures
- Foster inclusive growth
We want you to be part of this mission. We’ve identified five battlefronts – and we hope you’ll join the movement.
