Research indicates that Covid-19 is driving consumer demands around transparency as more people have become aware of supply chain issues that could potentially impact the health and safety of themselves, employees and their local community. Therefore, beyond “what’s in it?”, consumers want to know “where is it from?”, “how was it made?”, “who was the farmer or producer?”, and “how sustainable is the packaging?” Discover how ADM’s single partner solutions give you an edge in achieving your sustainability goals and meeting consumer expectations.

“Strive 35” is the companywide global initiative target to significantly reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, water usage, energy intensity* and waste to landfill by the year 2035.
We strive to find greener power solutions and improve energy efficiency and have made great advances in this throughout the past 5 years. With the implementation of an energy management system throughout our flour milling locations we’ve created a culture of energy usage monitoring and saving. Since 2017, Knottingley flour mill has received energy from a hydroelectric power station on the nearby River Aire. This commitment has been further enhanced by our commitment from 2021 to purchase all of our electricity from 100% renewable sources, thereby reducing our GHG emissions from milling operations to almost zero .
We have also made commitments to strive for zero emissions when it comes to our vehicles. We have already converted 67% of our distribution fleet to cleaner Euro6 engines, and this process will continue over the months to come.
