FrieslandCampina has won the Best Use of CSR Practices award at CMO Asia’s 6th Best CSR Practices Awards 2016 ceremony held in Singapore recently.
This is the second consecutive win by the Company.
The award recognizes corporate sustainability and responsibility programs that have made a positive impact on the lives of the communities in which companies operate.
FrieslandCampina’s multi-stakeholder approach to its CSR programs and its aim of creating shared value across the entire dairy value chain from suppliers to consumers won over the judges for demonstrating sustainability and long-term commitment and impact.
The company actively works with multiple stakeholders from governments to businesses and civil society through public-private partnerships and stakeholder engagement activities in all of its initiatives with the aim of addressing food and nutrition security challenges in Asia.
These initiatives are driven by the company’s ‘Nourishing by Nature’ purpose, which is to provide better nutrition for the world, and better livelihoods for farmers now and for generations to come.
In its Dairy Development Programme for instance, FrieslandCampina works with 45,000 farmers across the region, local governments, employees and non-governmental organizations to raise the productivity, quantity and quality of milk produced by smallholder farms.
These have led to increased incomes and improved livelihoods for smallholders in Asia.
