Company 1 Post

In April 2017 we were part of an investor collaboration that wrote to Danone to encourage the company to take steps to enhance its performance on animal welfare, as it had remained a mid-tier performer in the 2016 Business Benchmark on Farm Animal Welfare. The company responded, highlighting recent commitments and disclosures on this topic.
