Our Purpose Statement
“Australia’s leading corporate grain farmer through investments in people, environments and best practice.”
Our values support the company’s purpose statement, they shape our culture, and they reflect what Lawson as an organisation values. They are the essence of our identity – the principles, beliefs and philosophy.
We act with professionalism, integrity and respect for our peers, partners and stakeholders.
People are key to the success of Lawson and we have a great team both on-property and behind the scenes in our Albury office. We pride ourselves on acting with professionalism, integrity and respect in how we deal with staff, partners, stakeholders and the wider communities we operate in. Lawson Grains is invested in the safety and wellbeing of our people.
We are corporate farmers and we are passionate about Lawson and the industry.
We are built on the pensions of everyday people, so we are focused on the needs of our investors and that this is balanced alongside the requirements of our staff, partners and stakeholders.
We are long term custodians ensuring mutual benefit for our environments and communities.
We are in it for the long haul and we take a long-term view on how we operate. We make sure we look after not only our people but the need to enhance the quality and performance of the land and our properties.
We also are community orientated as we are investing in and are part of the local communities. Not only do we support local businesses, we employ families and young people from regional communities and we are active in supporting local initiatives, sports and interest groups, local charities and environmental initiatives.
We also believe in mutual benefit – if it is one sided, then it cannot be sustainable or endure. We are not just about performance and yield but making sure that we are making positive impacts on the environment and communities where we operate.
We use all of our resources wisely so we can invest in the future.
As a leading corporate farmer, we are always looking for percentage gains across all aspects of our operation to deliver improved returns to our shareholders and stakeholders. We use the latest technology, machinery and best practice to optimise performance and return on investment, and to maximise the amount of grain grown for the inputs required.
Our focus is not just on this season’s yield, but on yields for the future, and we implement practices that deliver long term results for Lawson, our shareholders and stakeholders, the industry and local communities.
