We are aware that our global operations can have both direct and indirect impact on the environment. We comply with applicable laws, regulations and other requirements for environmental management.
We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our activities.
Our operations are kept up to date on good agricultural practice, including precision agriculture technology. For instance, we work closely worldwide with industry groups and associations on research to address the increasing global demand for safe, reliable food sources.
Glencore encompasses many diverse activities, but water is essential to each for different reasons. Agricultural operations require water as an essential input.
This makes protecting waters, and maintaining access to high-quality water, two of our key water-related sustainability challenges. We prioritise water reuse/recycling, efficient water use, and maintenance of integrity for any equipment that may pose a hazard to water quality.
