Land O’Lakes today announced the introduction of its 2010 Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
The purpose of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report is to demonstrate how Land O’Lakes -- a farmer-owned food and agriculture cooperative -- is carrying out its commitment to community and family, protecting our natural resources, and working to achieve our goals through cooperation and highly responsible business practices.
“This publication is Land O’Lakes' second CSR Report, and I am proud of the strides we have made -- both in reporting on our commitments and in the tangible progress we have achieved throughout the organization,” said Chris Policinski, President and CEO for Land O’Lakes. “Although the report covers many aspects of CSR, one underlying theme comes through -- at Land O’Lakes the principles of Corporate Social Responsibility are focused and integral to the way we conduct business and set our priorities.”
Along with providing information about Land O’Lakes and its businesses, the CSR Report discusses the cooperative’s environmental stewardship and sustainability efforts, how the company supports members through financial returns and responsible practices, and its efforts to influence policies that promote Land O’Lakes’ CSR goals. The report also highlights examples of the cooperative’s philanthropy and community service, as well as International Development efforts around the world.
