We, at Kaap Agri strongly believe that corporate sustainability starts with our value system and a principles-based approach to doing business. By incorporating the principles of the UN Global Compact into our strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, we are not only upholding our basic responsibilities to people and the planet, but also setting the stage for long-term success.
Kaap Agri firmly embraces, supports, and enacts the UN Global Compact set of core principles in the areas of Human Rights, Labour, the Environment, and Anti-Corruption. Kaap Agri is also committed to an Ethical Code of Conduct and also has a Health, Safety and Environmental Policy as well as other such codes and guidelines that may be issued from time to time, as required by applicable law.
Co-operation and dialogue with stakeholders are essential for Kaap Agri as we seek to be good neighbours and valuable community members wherever we operate our business. Many of Kaap Agri’s Agrimark branches are cornerstone employers and of great importance to the local community contributing to the fiscus through tax income, jobs, infrastructure and community development. As a long-term partner, Kaap Agri values open dialogue with neighbours, local governments and other partners including research institutions, customers and suppliers.
