A world whose population is headed toward 9 billion by the year 2050 is expected to require as much as twice the food and energy produced today. As one of the world’s premier agribusinesses and a leading producer of food and feed ingredients and renewable fuels and chemicals, ADM has an important role to play in serving these vital needs.
To realize our vision of being the world’s most admired agribusiness, we recognize that we must create value while growing responsibly. That’s why our 30,000 colleagues are working to continuously improve our environmental performance, establish a sustainable supply chain for the crops we source, and ensure that our capital investments, social investments and investments in people help us fulfill our vital purpose.
This 2011 Corporate Responsibility report documents many of ADM’s most important achievements toward these goals. Please navigate through the site using the links on the left side of this page.
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guideline (G3) was used as a guide to prepare this report. ADM does not yet declare a GRI reporting level, but we are gathering the necessary metrics and expanding our efforts to meet many GRI reporting recommendations. This report concludes with an index of references to GRI indicators.
