Emissions: Reducing Output on a Per-Unit-of-Production Basis

-8.6%=Reduction in emissions intensity achieved since our 2010 baseline.

From 2010 to 2014, thanks to a companywide energy-efficiency push, ADM succeeded in reducing CO2 emissions intensity—the ratio of emissions to production volumes in our plants—by 8.6 percent. Emissions from ADM processing operations are primarily a function of energy use and the type of fuel we use to power our operations. As we continue implementing energy efficiency projects in our pipeline, we expect intensity to decline at a rate that will enable us to reach our goal of a 15 percent improvement by 2020.

Also in 2014, ADM participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project’s Climate Change survey with our first-ever public disclosure. Our survey response covered Scope 1 (direct) and Scope 2 (indirect) emissions for 2012 and 2013, as well as a host of information about the company’s energy use, risk-management practices and corporate responsibility initiatives.
