Sustainability at AAK

Making Better Happen™ from plant to brand

Sustainability from plant to brand

Sustainability is at the heart of our purpose Making Better Happen™. Our sustainability work is embedded in all parts of the AAK value chain, from the crop all the way to the brand on the store shelf.

At AAK, building sustainability into our everyday activities helps us to achieve our vision of being the first choice for plant-based oil solutions. Hand in hand with financial growth, social and environmental responsibility is key to our continued development and future success.

As signatories of the UN Global Compact, and the UN Global Compact’s Statement for Renewed Global Cooperation, we are committed to do our part to create a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable world.

Our contribution

During 2020, the most significant impact we created in connection with Agenda 2030 was through our Kolo Nafaso program within our shea supply chain. A key achievement has been the growth of the number of women involved by 39 percent (90,000) compared to 2019. Today, we are reaching 321,443 women in total. Read more about our contribution here.

Our approach

In 2020, we updated, sharpened and focused our framework for integrating sustainability into our business model and strategy – the AAK House of Sustainability. The aim is to embed sustainability from plant to brand and strengthen AAK’s position as the customer’s first choice for plant-based oil solutions. Read more about our approach here
