Corporate Social Responsibility

As a global leader in the premix and nutrition sector in Europe, Vilofoss plays an important role as purchaser and supplier of vitamins and minerals, feed and other inputs in the first stage of production of foodstuffs. This means that we have a substantial position in the European agriculture and feedstuffs cluster.

In 2012, our owner, DLG, adopted the UN Global Compact, which is an initiative focusing on ten principles of corporate social responsibility (CSR). We focus on incorporating the following principles into our daily operations:

  • Human rights
  • Labour rights
  • Environment
  • Anti-corruption
Simultaneously, DLG actively communicates the group’s CSR activities and results in an annual progress report, known as Communication on Progress (COP). In 2017, DLG published the Modern Slavery Statement, which outlines the group's commitment to deal with modern slavery and human trafficking.

Based on Global Compact, DLG’s Executive Steering Committee adopted a group-wide CSR policy. The policy describes DLG’s core values and fundamental approach to social responsibility, namely that the initiative must be strategic, significant and practically feasible.
