At the end of a co-construction approach lasting over three years which involved employees, the Executive Committee and the Youth Executive Committee, representatives of upstream agriculture and the stakeholder committee, Avril has defined its purpose: “Serving the Earth”. This purpose is in line with Avril’s mission: create sustainable value in the oil and protein sectors, and thus contribute to better food for people and preservation of the Planet. It guides the Group’s strategic orientations and nurtures its new ambition: to be the leader in plant processing solutions for the agricultural, food and environmental transitions. For Avril, “Serving the Earth” means helping to meet two major challenges: the climate emergency and population growth, which is putting more pressure than ever on our Planet’s resources. Taking on these challenges means we have to change our eating habits, our farming practices and our energy choices. Avril is extending its historic mission with a purpose that reaffirms its power to act.

The main focus is economic viability and profitability of the farms. There’s also the challenge of generational renewal, as around 50% of agricultural entrepreneurs will retire in the next ten years. The agricultural world is experiencing a host of changes against a globalized backdrop where specific strategic issues in Europe are calling the ambition to combine production and the environment into question. Avril is actively involved in these issues and relies on a sector model that continues to be attractive and effective for farmers. We accompany and support their transitions by encouraging the development of a solution agriculture. And, this is all the more true as we’re going through a complicated time for the agricultural world, heightened even more over the past few weeks by the Ukrainian crisis, which puts further pressure on raw material, energy and production resource costs. More than ever, Avril is, and will continue to be tomorrow, a solid base for the future. We need to explain and illustrate our model and strategy effectiveness to boost cooperation and trust even more. And, as such, to live up to the goal of our purpose, Serving the Earth. We’re convinced that agriculture offers high-performance solutions for societal challenges, and Avril’s model intends to include all stakeholders in this vision that brings together sustainability, development and value creation. As such, 2021 was a year where the promotion and fi- nancial recognition of low-carbon agricultural practices were ramped up. This is illustrated through the tripling of the volume of seeds collected from farmers and storage organizations via Saipol’s OleoZE solution. To produce climate-sustainable rapeseed that is also better valorized, with a remuneration bonus of around 23 euros per ton on average in 2021. This economic model is brand new and positive and is in line with green competitiveness. We’re all incredibly proud. Addressing the challenges of food and energy sovereignty, through the European production of vegetable proteins, was also a key subject in 2021 on which Avril became in- volved really early on and continues to invest in. This can be seen, for example, through the success of Oleo100, a B100 fuel produced from French rapeseed that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 60%, as such contributing actively to road transport decarbonization. Last but not least, our support for animal sectors conti- nues to be strong. We ensure, in particular, that optimal feed is provided to livestock farms, and we also carry out a lot of work with livestock farmers on animal welfare. Our commitment is also financial. At the end of 2021, Sofiprotéol investments in animal sectors stood at 40% of the amounts invested.
