Godiva aims to bring opportunity and hope to the world through responsible and sustainable growth. Their spirit of commitment drives the responsibility Godiva feels to improve 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. Godiva strives to invest in programs and practices that lead to lasting positive outcomes for our consumers, partners and communities.
Godiva is a participating member of the World Cocoa Foundation, 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 children. Godiva believes that protecting children is a shared responsibility across the cocoa industry. Godiva has a policy that requires all of their suppliers to be in compliance with applicable labor laws and regulations.
An essential part of Godiva’s work is their commitment to empower women and children which is why they have partnered with Save the Children, the world’s leading independent non-profit organization for children in nearly 120 countries.
A hallmark of Godiva’s work to empower women is The Lady Godiva Program, which celebrated inspirational women. The Lady Godiva Program recognizes women in local communities who embody the attributes and spirit of Lady Godiva through selflessness, generosity and leadership.
Godiva is also a proud signatory of the Cocoa Forest Initiative and is committed to helping end deforestation and forest degradation in the global cocoa supply chain.
