Our Commitment - The Dole Way

Our knowledge and commitment, our innovative projects and solutions are the keys to creating better long-term results from cultivation to consumption. Our goal: we want to keep improving opportunities for communities around the world. As one of the world's leading food companies, we want to be an important pioneer of change.

Our Commitment - The Dole Way

Dole’s new framework paves the way for further improvements in areas where we believe we can make the biggest positive impacts. Developed in coordination with Dole’s three main business divisions, the framework is intended to be easily understood yet thorough enough that there can be no doubt about where our priorities stand. The big picture: Dole's sustainability activities focus on people, nature and nutrition. We aim to positively influence the lives and livelihoods of the people who work for and with us, and their communities. We want to protect nature with smart strategies and we consider a diet with the highest quality fruit and vegetables to be an essential part of health and wellbeing.

We do it

Our way is The Dole Way – a firm commitment to corporate responsibility and sustainability. In an honest and transparent way, we set ambitious goals and defined concrete metrics. Our sustainability history shows that we have already began our journey. But Dole will continue on this exciting path in collaboration with our partners, consumers and retailers. Let's tackle the future together today!
