ADM’s Global Regenerative Agriculture Program Named to Fast Company’s 2024 List of World Changing Ideas

By: via Business Wire

ADM recognized for rapidly scaling its global regenerative agriculture program to more producers and brands in 2023

ADM (NYSE: ADM) and its global regenerative agriculture program were named a finalist in the Enterprise category of Fast Company’s 2024 World Changing Ideas Awards. Selected from a pool of more than 1,300 entries, ADM was one of 127 finalists recognized for developing creative solutions to today’s most pressing issues.

As a leader in developing innovative solutions from nature and a pillar of the global food supply system, ADM is scaling up efforts to enhance the sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint of the value chains in which it operates. Its global regenerative agriculture program supports growers in adopting regenerative farming practices that protect and improve soil health, biodiversity, climate and water resources while supporting farming business development. Simultaneously, ADM connects these climate-smart producers with downstream CPG brands – such as PepsiCo, Nestlé, and Carlsberg – to help them create more sustainably sourced products and reduce their Scope 3 emissions.

The program has seen rapid success in the past year. In 2023, ADM delivered more than 2.8 million regenerative acres, exceeding its 2-million-acre goal, partnering with more than 28,000 growers of corn, soybeans, wheat, peanuts, cotton, sorghum, canola and barley as it expanded its regenerative agriculture efforts to new regions, including the launch of programs in Europe and Latin America.

Building on the program’s outstanding success in 2023, in April 2024 ADM announced that it is now targeting 3.5 million regenerative acres in 2024 and is increasing its 2025 goal from 4 million to 5 million acres globally – an area roughly the size of Massachusetts.

“This recognition is a testament to our global teams as well as the incredible producer and brand partners who understand the urgent need for greater adoption of regenerative agriculture practices to build a more resilient food system,” said Greg Morris, president of ADM’s Ag Services and Oilseeds business. “The last 12 months have been monumental in scaling the program. However, we’re truly only getting started. We’re excited to continue expanding regenerative agriculture to more producers and brands throughout the world.”
