Skretting sustainability performance 2019

7. Caring for people

Our people are central to our global mission of ‘Feeding the Future’. To fulfil this promise, we need a driven and passionate community of people: people who work together across borders; people who know that “we” is more powerful than “I”; and people that understand that the best solutions are found when they openly collaborate. These people will drive our innovation agenda and also help us act as a responsible and creative business leader.

As Skretting continues to evolve – looking beyond feed for new business opportunities, we will increasingly also put together more creative, cross-functional teams, and introducing new skill sets and ways of thinking in order to be competitive in the market place.

To ensure that we continue to be in the best position to attract top talent and to help those individuals and our operations to reach their full potential, we are committed to providing an environment that is rich in diversity and fully inclusive.

In recent years, some important initiatives have been implemented that are enhancing our diversity and inclusion (D&I), including a Taking the Stage programme that empowers female colleagues in the workplace.

The way that Skretting is expanding globally gives us a fantastic opportunity to bring new talent into the company and to establish a very positive gender balance. As we continue to progress, we will need greater diversity in our ranks.

Safety first programme

Health and safety is at the core of our focus. Its importance is made clear in th eNutreco Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) policy. The rules and standards derived from this policy, which apply to all Skretting operations, are mandatory, without exception.

In 2018, the company's are of injuries increased and the corporate HSE team was tasked with helping to find ways to reverse this trend. A safety cutlure programme was developed for Nutreco in cooperation with other companies in the SHV group. This programme was approved by the Nutreco Executive Committeee in January 2018.

In 2019, the safety culture programme continued with the roll-out of new "life-saving rules". Eight life-saving rules were defined by corporate HSE in order to control the high-risk activities taking place in Nutreco. In Q1 and Q2, life-saving materials including videos and posters were created for each rule. This work will continue into early 2020, and will include the launch of a new life-saving e-learning tool. In Q4, the third global safety week will be organised in cooperation with other Nutreco companies. The programme has already had a significant impct, with lost time injury incidents falling from 49 in 2018 to 21 in 2019, representing a deduction fo 58%.
