Our values have long been reflected in the way we work. They are essential guides for every employee and standards by which we live.
Entrepreneurship makes change happen. It drives us to challenge conventional wisdom, question our assumptions, and, as a result, create new opportunities and continually improve.
For nearly two hundred years, Bunge has crossed oceans to bring the vision of entrepreneurs to life. We are a company in which small teams, acting on good ideas and through quick decisions and smart acquisitions, built a global agribusiness and food operation from scratch.
Teamwork is essential because no single person has all the answers, and no one has cornered the market on good ideas. The most successful entrepreneurs, though competitive in spirit, work best when they work with others – sharing insights, combining eﬀorts, and multiplying their strengths.
Teamwork requires openness and trust. We encourage free discussion and place trust in our colleagues. We value new ideas and opinions, even if they are counterintuitive, and expect to hear accurate information, even – or especially – if it is not good news. Conﬁdence in our colleagues’ candor and ability builds trust that makes our team more eﬀective.
Integrity is the foundation of everything we do. It means doing not just what is required, but what is right. It means acting ethically and fairly, and fulﬁlling our promises to colleagues and customers.
Our sense of citizenship extends to all stakeholders. We demonstrate concern for the well-being of individuals, and seek to improve the economic development and strengthen the social fabric of our communities. We also aim to be stewards of the environment, using resources eﬃciently and responsibly.
“We are true to our word. And we are fair in our treatment of one another, of suppliers, of customers and communities.”
“Bunge employees are entrepreneurial. They make choices, take considered risks, and act quickly and decisively.”
