Well-designed and carefully implemented social protection programmes are among the most cost-effective development interventions and an important solution to reaching multiple objectives simultaneously, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Commitments to action
Danone Commitments to the EU Code of Conduct
At Danone, we believe that each time we eat and drink, we can vote for the world we want to live in. Our ‘One Planet. One Health.’ framework of actions encapsulates our strong belief that the health of people and that of the planet are deeply interconnected. Healthy food contributes to our general health, and healthy food depends on a healthy planet. This will explain why Danone strongly supports the EU Green Deal and the EU Farm to Fork Strategy objectives to combat climate change, to restore biodiversity, and to transform our food systems to make healthy and sustainable food accessible to all – as laid out in our EU Call to Action for a Common Food Policy. There is no other option than to continue on our path towards sustainable food systems.
Convinced that each actor in the supply chain has a responsibility and a role to play in the sustainable transition, Danone is hence submitting the series of commitments that cover key parts of its impact under the three pillars of the EU Code of Conduct:
- Improving the sustainability of food processing’s internal processes
- Promoting food consumption patterns (for healthy and sustainable diets)
- Improving the sustainability of the food value chain

During the process of the UNFSS, the critical role of the urban in the overall food system transformation has become more evident than ever.
Unite The World With Africa Foundation in America is funding the build-out of the women’s owned social enterprise in Tanzania called The Unite Food Program (UFP). The mission is to empower small-scale farmers in Tanzania by purchasing their organic grains at fair-market prices and then processing the organic grains at the Unite Food Program headquarters to sell to the masses, again at fair-market prices
