Our Progress in 2020

The first step on any journey is often the hardest. However, we had plenty of early wins in the first year. Read our Executive Summary and learn more about our progress in all 6 (six) areas in the 2020 Progress Review below.

 

Sustainable Development Goals

This promise is bigger than ourselves. We are doubling down on our mission to do business differently and joining forces with strategic partners in order to work towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) outlined by the United Nations to better our world today and for our future generations to come. See all the SDGs we are supporting.

Meet our Partners

As we deliver on these promises we realise that we may not have all the answers today. And we humbly believe that achieving a sustainable future for all, cannot be done alone. Our Dole promise is therefore underpinned by key partnerships like Solidaridad and Rocana to innovate, collaborate and approach key stakeholders across the value chain.
