GODIVA aims to bring opportunity and hope to the world through responsible and sustainable growth. Our namesake, Lady GODIVA focused on doing what was right for her community and in doing so she continues to inspire us today. This spirit of commitment drives the responsibility we feel to improve the health, welfare and environment in the communities where we live and work. For GODIVA, sustainability is a way of doing business. It’s a promise we keep with every stakeholder: to do well by doing good. We strive to invest in programs and practices that lead to lasting positive outcomes for our consumers, partners and communities. We are proud of the work we do to support farmers and our partners to safeguard the environment. GODIVA is a participating member of the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF), a leading nonprofit organization that promotes sustainability in the cocoa sector by providing cocoa farmers with the support they need to grow more quality cocoa and strengthen their communities. The WCF’s work has led to increased productivity and profits for cocoa farmers, helping to ensure a sustainable supply of cocoa for generations to come. A critical component of enriching lives is the protection of the world’s children, as well as improved training and education for young people. GODIVA believes that protecting children is a shared responsibility across the cocoa industry. We strongly condemn forced labor or any practice that exploits, endangers or harms children. We have a policy that requires all of our suppliers to be in compliance with applicable labor laws and regulations. Our cocoa is purchased through established suppliers that agree to comply with applicable labor laws. An essential part of our work in communities is our commitment to empower women and children. We are proud partners of Save the Children, the world’s leading independent non-profit organization for children in nearly 120 countries. They have two decades of experience implementing programs in the Côte d’ Ivoire, which is the world’s largest cocoa growing country. Through our collaboration with Save the Children, we are helping to prevent child and maternal deaths in this important cocoa-growing country by addressing causes and finding solutions so that women and their children survive childbirth. We are proud to report that we have exceeded our environmental goals for water and carbon two years early.
