Integrating a Sustainability Mindset into Business Practices
Sustainability governance drives our decision-making so that we may improve the lives of our customers, employees, partners and in the communities where we operate. Through our approach and business practices, we empower our stakeholders to become more sustainable while enabling Kemin to innovate products and services that drive transformation far into the future.
Of course, we can’t do it alone. We see our customers as our partners in creating a vision for future generations, and we work to help them reduce their environmental impact in human and animal health and nutrition, pet food, aquaculture, nutraceutical, food technologies, crop technologies, textile, biofuel and animal vaccine industries. These products and services help drive the transformation of business today into the stewardship of sustainability, meeting both altruistic and financial goals.
Healthy Business in Action
We developed – and abide by – a sustainability governance model that ensures sustainability is integrated into every facet of the business, which results in sustainable actions, programs, products and services.
We adhere to Kemin’s Global Environmental Policy Statement.
We have created a corporate sustainability role at Kemin, created solely to implement, champion, monitor and measure the company’s sustainability efforts across the globe.
