We are committed to protecting our environment through the responsible management of natural resources.
Preserving and Protecting the Planet we Rely on
Our connection to the Earth is paramount to everything we do. We are committed to being good stewards of the land, protecting our natural resources, and cultivating innovations that help us do more with less. We support sustainable agriculture, fishing, mining and manufacturing to safeguard resources for future generations. We continue to look for new ways to improve products, packaging and manufacturing to reduce our environmental impact, setting goals to reduce energy, carbon, water consumption and waste across our operations.
Approach to Environmental Sustainability
“At Simplot, we believe that change comes from the bottom, up: from the soil beneath our feet. Our environmental program is focused on working with our farmers, our suppliers and our customers to find practical solutions to climate and resilience, to assure water supply and quality, and to build healthy soils. We’re committed to meeting people where they are and helping them. Our ambition is to partner with trusted food brands to meet their sustainability goals, while at the same time walking with our producers – hand-in-hand – to take steps forward. It’s about putting those partnerships and relationships first, so we can make progress for the Earth, together.”
– Brandy Wilson, Simplot Global Sustainability Director
4Sight 2030 Goals
Our operational goals are aimed at major reductions in energy, water, waste and carbon emissions by 2030. Having a dedicated plan enables us to more accurately map our future and track our progress within every country in which we operate.
At Simplot, being good stewards of the land that takes care of us is more than the core of our business – it is simply the right thing to do. Sustainable land use and conservation of natural resources is critical to meeting the global food needs for today’s growing population and for future generations.
Water is our most precious resource. From safeguarding ocean resources to improving irrigation and soil moisture management, we work hard to make water conservation a key part of our commitment to sustainability. Our commitment to water conservation specifically includes improving water efficiency, adhering to watershed stewardship, and engaging in water conservation partnerships.
