Cargill’s Edible Oils Group engaged Steward Redqueen to support it in writing its sustainability strategy. The Group was already managing a portfolio of projects and had made significant progress in a number of supply chains but felt that the overarching theme for edible oils was missing.
Being an outsider Steward Redqueen could take an independent view and discipline a ‘pressure cooker’-process. This was focused and result-oriented, yet we engaged with a range of internal and external stakeholders. As part of our work we executed socio-economic value chain analysis of various agro-commodities. The result was that in a period of only six months a robust strategy could be presented to the senior executives of the group.
