Associated British Foods PLC (ABF) is a diversified company operating within the food, ingredient and retail industries. The company’s primary operations include sugar, ingredients, grocery, agriculture and retail, including the well-known retail brand Primark.
With operations across five continents and a presence in 55 countries, ABF is exposed to numerous climate risks within its supply chains, necessitating risk-mitigation measures to optimize opportunities and enhance business success. For decades, many of ABF’s businesses have implemented sustainability programs, resulting in consistent performance improvements. ABF’s focus has always been on aligning environmental goals with social responsibilities within the environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework.
Due to the complexity of the business ABF needed a reliable and easy-to-use software system to collect and manage their ESG data for annual reporting. Recognizing the importance of using a flexible solution that is easy to administer and manage, ABF chose Sphera when looking for a new partner which could cover their requirements as well as their health and safety management, audit management and annual ESG reporting.
