Enhancing the Sustainability of the Softseed Supply Chain

9 = ADM Oilseeds production facilities in Europe that have been ISCC PLUS-certified, enabling them to supply the food industry with certified-sustainable edible oils from crops including rapeseed and sunflower seed.

Through the ADM Sustainable Oilseeds Program, participating rapeseed and sunflower growers in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Ukraine develop environmental management systems and implement sustainable agricultural practices that address soil fertility, water protection, energy efficiency and biodiversity protection. Farms are subject to audits to help ensure compliance. The program is based on ISCC PLUS principles.

As part of the program, ADM has provided financial support to the Polish Society for Bird Protection, which strives to protect rare birds in the grasslands of the Upper Narew Valley in northeast Poland. Through their participation in the Sustainable Oilseeds Program, farmers support this biodiversity development project.

In the United Kingdom, ADM has also entered into a partnership with Linking Environment And Farming, or LEAF, a global organization that promotes sustainable agricultural practices at the farm level to produce sustainable rapeseed oil.
