Our employees are at the heart of the movement to make sustainable chocolate the norm. To be successful, we need to engage all of our stakeholders in Forever Chocolate, and that starts with our most important asset, our people. That’s why we have launched a global employee engagement initiative for sustainability, to ensure that all employees can participate in and contribute to our Forever Chocolate initiatives.
#SeedsforChange gives employees the opportunity to get involved with our Thriving Nature and Prospering Farmers commitments within our Forever Chocolate strategy. #SeedsforChange was launched globally in December 2018. Employees will undertake a range of regional activities to decrease their carbon footprint while accumulating points and funds to donate seedlings to cocoa farmers engaged in our sustainability programs, helping to diversify their farms, replace ageing trees, and earn more income in the process.
