Nurturing Our Planet
From 2016–2018, we supported 322,000 farmers globally.
As a leading global plant-based food company, we are committed to taking a leading role in addressing food security through the urgent and interrelated issues of accessible and nutritious food, sustainable production and hunger relief. This work starts in the field where farmers take care to cultivate high-quality foods, using responsible and sustainable practices. From 2016 –2018, we’ve supported 322,000 farmers (many of whom are smallholders and women), their families and communities by advancing climate-smart agriculture practices that improve yields and livelihoods and climate resiliency while using fewer natural resources.
Our work nurturing our planet contributes to our five priority U.N. SDGs: 2 – Zero Hunger; 5 – Gender Equality; 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production; 13 – Climate Action; 15 – Life on Land; and 17 – Partnerships for the Goals. It also supports a number of additional SDGs that are important to our business, outlined in Materiality Across our Value Chain.
