As a company that connects the world with more that 430 million metric tonnes of commodities a year, we recognise the significant impact we have on people and the environment, and the importance of acting responsibly at all times.
Our approach to sustainability
We set clear goals relating to the following six key ESG objectives and values:
Putting our policies into action
The Corporate Responsibility Policy and HSEC Business Principles that underpin our approach are aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). They are regularly reviewed to reflect our stakeholders’ evolving expectations and keep pace with emerging best practice for multinational corporations. Our Code of Business Conduct sets out minimum expectations for all employees and business partners. We actively encourage business partners and other entities directly linked to our business operations, products and services to align with and implement comparable standards.
Governance and approach
Trafigura’s Board ESG Committee oversees sustainability performance at the highest level, supported by the Operational HSEC and Commercial ESG Steering Committees, both of which are led by members of the Management Committee. The Group is committed to responsible management and oversight of its operations and business activities, wherever we operate.
Mapping what matters - our salient risks
In order to support our Responsibility Framework, we identify and assess actual and potential adverse impacts that the Group could cause, contribute to or be linked to, either through our own activities or as a result of our business relationships. This identification process, reviewed annually, draws on expertise within the Group and involves extensive consultation with potentially affected groups and other relevant stakeholders.
