Bunge’s goal as a company is to leave a positive mark on the communities where we operate, not just through products that feed the world, but volunteering and investment that expresses our purpose through action.
We focus on the promotion of the economic, social and climate resilience of communities by empowering and supporting renowned partners and non-profit organizations around the world.
Guided by a Global Contributions Policy, we provide financial support or in-kind gifts to organizations whose missions or activities align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a priority focus on Zero Hunger and Quality Education.
In 2022, Bunge invested over US $10M million to support communities in which we have a business presence, more than doubling the amount donated in 2021. From this total, approximately US $5 million was dedicated to support relief efforts in Ukraine, where Bunge has a facility and a dedicated workforce.

Donations towards relief efforts in Ukraine
Bunge teams around the globe have a long history of giving back to their local communities. Food security has been top-of-mind as global conflicts and climate change further reinforced the need to address hunger at the community level. Given these significant challenges, Bunge’s efforts have taken an increased focus on addressing food security issues.
To that end, Bunge promoted for the first time a global volunteering event in 2022, encouraging teams to participate in activities related to food security in the communities where they live and work. More than 600 Bunge volunteers in 17 countries and 40 cities joined forces to lead food drives, volunteer at food banks and support local groups focused on addressing hunger and food access.
