We are committed to reducing our environmental impact by creating smarter processes that generate less waste, reduce water usage and increase our use of carbon-free and renewable power. Leveraging our four principles of sustainability—compliance, communication, resource conservation, and continuous improvement—we are now able to measure and monitor our progress like never before.
We are proud of these significant accomplishments:
- Waste minimization — 98.8% of waste materials diverted from landfills due to Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose efforts.
- Water — 12.6% below our baseline in water consumption per unit of production, due to cleaning and reusing water at our facilities. That’s halfway to our goal!
- Creative re-use — Using eggshells and potato trimmings as supplements in animal feed, and repurposing manure from our farms to create sustainable fertilizers.
