ADM Sustainability Tracker
ADM's Sustainability Progress Tracker provides an overview of the company’s goals and plans as it works toward full implementation of its commitment to no-deforestation.

CHICAGO — Archer Daniels Midland Co. has launched its Sustainability Progress Tracker (www.adm.com/progresstracker), an on-line tool designed to provide an overview of the company’s goals and plans, as well as detailed reports on progress, as it works toward full implementation of its commitment to no-deforestation.

ADM has partnered with The Forest Trust to implement its commitment to no-deforestation. The company has mapped its palm oil footprint, established baseline traceability scores and completed a review of all of its direct suppliers. On the soy side, ADM said it is working to identify regions of high risk, establish baseline scores and review all of its suppliers in order to create a detailed action plan for working with suppliers to achieve the company’s goals.

“The Progress Tracker also highlights the important progress we’ve made in implementing our 2014 Commitment to Respect Human Rights,” said Ismael Roig, chief sustainability officer at ADM. “Last year, we completed our global analysis of human rights issues and identification of high-risk geographies, and analyzed the risks in our own supply chain. Now we’re moving forward with actions to mitigate those risks.”
