2021 CHS Sustainability Report describes key initiatives
The first CHS Sustainability Report describes initiatives across the globe. Soybeans play a role in many CHS sustainability efforts.
The first CHS Sustainability Report is now available online. The report covers key initiatives in the three fundamental CHS sustainability areas: Economic viability, environmental stewardship and community well-being.
“Sustainability is not a new concept for those of us who live and work in agriculture,” says Jay Debertin, CHS president and CEO. “We care for the Earth, for our businesses and for each other in ways that look toward the future – not just protecting and preserving our resources, but striving to make our world a little better with every opportunity, every day.
Initiatives described in the report range from reducing energy use by switching to LED bulbs and minimizing grain dust at facilities in South America to supporting diversity in agriculture and employee development programs.
