Trafigura publishes its 2017 Responsibility Report

22nd November 2017

Our 2017 Responsibility Report, released today, is the third annual account of our progress in meeting the commitments we have made towards advancing trade responsibly.  It reflects on achievements, challenges, dilemmas and on lessons learned – as well as measures we have put in place to strengthen performance going forward. 

Like its predecessors, the report contains a wealth of detailed information and case studies.  We have sought to provide a candid and practical articulation of what corporate responsibility means from the perspective of one of the world’s leading commodities trading firms and of how we, together with our business partners, seek to manage our social and environmental impacts.

As noted by CEO Jeremy Weir, “We have progress to report, but also acknowledge there is still much to do… whatever the short-term challenges, I am more convinced than ever that we are on the right track and that as Trafigura approaches the 25th anniversary of its foundation, our responsible approach to trading will differentiate our business from our competitors.”

Last year we reported on the adoption of a new Corporate Responsibility Policy and updated Business Principles. This year our focus has been on implementation.  As outlined by Andrew Gowers and Andrew Vickerman, Co-Chairs of Trafigura’s HSEC Steering Committee An important focus of work during the year was on the company’s own operating culture. Following the adoption of our new Policy and Business Principles, we set out to socialise them across the Group.”
