Cargill is pushing forward in its sustainability commitments. The supplier recently released its Fiscal Year 2023 ESG Report, which showcases the work being done to drive an even greater positive global impact. Cargill’s sustainability strategy is designed to deliver on the company’s purpose of nourishing the world in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way in the areas of Climate, Land and Water, and People.

Brian Sikes, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cargill“When it comes to urgent challenges facing people and the planet, Cargill’s connections across the food system give us the opportunity—and responsibility—to deliver meaningful solutions,” said Brian Sikes, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The problem-solving potential of agriculture has always been essential in nourishing people, supporting the livelihoods of farmers and food workers, and unlocking opportunities for growth. Leading with our values, Cargill is working to help achieve zero hunger, decarbonize our industries, protect and restore natural resources, and ultimately improve people’s lives.”

In everything the company does, it aims to put people first, do the right thing, and reach higher, according to a press release. The impact and progress in this year’s report demonstrate those values in action.
