Arla in society

Our Responsibility

We want to grow and we care about how we do it.

We regard ourselves as an active player in the communities in which we operate. This means that we need to convey our fundamental values not only to our employees and farmer owners but also to our customers, consumers and other relevant stakeholders.

We operate our business in a sustainable and responsible manner in order to safeguard and develop the company's reputation and profitability, while caring for people and delivering growth.

CSR at Arla

We support the UN's

Sustainable Development Goals

In September 2015, the UN adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The SDGs take a broad perspective and are relevant for all countries, rich as well as poor. For these goals to become reality, all countries, businesses and organisations should embrace whatever change is necessary.

For Arla, the journey has already begun. While we support all SDGs, we focus our efforts on the three goals, where Arla can have the biggest positive impact. These are goals 2, 8 and 12.
