ADM Sets Scope 3 Emissions Target

ADM has announced a new commitment to reduce the company’s Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2035 against a 2019 baseline. Scope 3 refers to emissions associated with the company’s supply chain, such as from purchased goods, upstream transportation, and the processing of sold products.
