Post Holdings 2020 Environmental, Social and Governance Report

In 2020, we began formally identifying Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) objectives that consider each of our businesses’ unique operations and pertinent metrics. Each company maintains a separate focus on individualized and prioritized projects — without losing the benefit and opportunity to share knowledge across the businesses.

“To be environmentally responsible and socially aware are not ends in themselves. They are requirements of our greater objective of creating a business that is economically valuable, a contributing member of its communities and a place in which each associate has the safety, respect and development to achieve his or her potential.”

Rob Vitale
President and Chief Executive Officer

Our Approach to Governance and
Decision Making​

We recognize the importance of sound corporate governance and behavior and conduct operations in compliance with all laws and requirements in the countries where we operate. ​

Within that framework, our delegated authority model provides significant decision-making at the business unit level. Each business has its own leadership team, programs, initiatives and policies that empower their respective teams to make the most positive decisions which directly leverage their own business priorities. ​

Post Holdings and its Board of Directors are committed to conducting our business ethically, responsibly and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines outline how the Board of Directors executes its responsibilities in support of our business objectives.

The Board of Directors conducts some of its business on behalf of the company through committees. The Audit Committee reviews our auditing, financial reporting and internal control functions, and operates pursuant to the Audit Committee Charter. The Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee reviews our Corporate Governance Guidelines, recommends nominees for election to the Board of Directors, makes recommendations to the Board of Directors regarding executive compensation, administers employee benefit plans and operates pursuant to the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee Charter.

Our Suppliers

We are committed to maintaining a high standard of business ethics in dealings with our employees, governments, customers and consumers. It is our mission to assure that suppliers do the same, by sharing certain standards that guide our daily decisions and actions. Post’s Supplier Code of Conduct reinforces our expectation that our suppliers do business ethically, protect our products, and support the goal of long-term sustainable supply by addressing known business, environmental and social risks and building supplier capability.
