Sustainalytics is the leading company assessing the industry’s efforts to manage the environmental, social and governance risks in supply chains. This year’s result, which succeeds Barry Callebaut’s top ranking in 2018/19 by Sustainalytics, confirms that Barry Callebaut is consistently leading among peers. 

Why is this assessment important?
