Our Sustainability Plan

Sustainability has always been at the heart of our co-operative and our WA grower members, and is reflected in our purpose: To sustainably create and return value to Western Australian growers, both current and future. 

Expectations are evolving from our customers, government, and communities to increase our sustainability efforts, while changing weather patterns mean we need to be vigilant of the impact this has on the environment and on grain production in our regions.

We want WA grain growers to remain competitive in meeting customer expectations so that they and their communities can thrive into the future. Our Sustainability Plan is an important part of this as strong sustainability performance will increasingly underpin market access and pricing.

Our commitment to sustainability is not new and we have been publicly reporting our progress for the past decade. Our updated Sustainability Plan builds on this record, with five pillars integrated into our day-to-day operations:

Sustainable procurement at CBH
Responsible and sustainable procurement

To support our operations, we rely on a large network of suppliers and contractors. We value those relationships, as we all work together to achieve positive outcomes that align with CBH’s strategic objectives, sustainability principles and community engagement goals.

When it comes to procurement, this means ensuring responsible practices within our supply chain, and choosing goods and services produced in a way that is sustainable, and environmentally and socially responsible. This, in turn, supports and creates vibrant and thriving local communities.
