The formalization of a partnership approach with NIEA reinforces our project to work carefully to reduce our impact throughout the company, in accordance with our sustainable development agenda. The agreement confirms our overall commitment and long-term vision and allows us to grow and educate and adapt new ways to contribute to a more prosperous and healthy way of doing business. We continue to invest time and effort to ensure that we are the market leaders and responsible companies. « As part of this agreement, NIEA will divert resources from bureaucratic processes that do not value the measures that support Linden Foods and Linergy to improve their environmental performance in their own businesses and throughout their supply chain. I congratulate both Linden and Linergy for their vision and their real desire to be at the forefront of progressive sustainable activity. « At the time, our MPs, ministers and mlas warned that the government`s own impact assessment indicated that this would reduce trade, investment and consumer spending.
