    Abstract

    This working paper is part of a case study about the international environmental and social performance of the multinational Danish pesticide manufacturing and marketing company Cheminova. In the paper the practice of Cheminova is described and characterised based on its CSR reports from 2007 and 2008, covering the years 2006 and 2007 and the annual report covering 2007 of the mother company of Cheminova, Auriga Industries A/S. The following three analytical perspectives are applied - Within a conventional agricultural strategy, what is efficiency and effectiveness of Cheminova’s initiatives - Within an environmental and social sustainable agricultural strategy, what are known experiences with other concepts, which fulfil the objectives, which Cheminova claims to care about - Within an equal opportunity perspective: whether Cheminova practices a “double standard strategy” with higher environmental and social protection in industrialised countries than in developing countries
