External Impact

We are partnering with customers, farmers, suppliers, communities and other industry stakeholders to address equity challenges in agriculture. This includes focused community outreach and leveraging our published sustainability goals.

Our goals:

  • Increase the productivity, incomes and sustainable practices of 500 million smallholder farmers in emerging markets cumulatively, including doubling the percentage of female smallholder farmers served, by 2030.
  • Establish baseline and strategy to increase access to modern farming technologies, data, and financial resources for women and ethnic minority farmers in developed countries, beginning with the U.S. and Canada, by 2030
  • Increase inclusion in our supply base to achieve 25% of global addressable spend with diverse suppliers and small businesses by 2030.
  • Engage industry stakeholders to understand and address equity challenges in agriculture through data transparency and focused community outreach.
