CHS Publishes 2022 Sustainability Report
CHS has released its 2022 CHS Sustainability Report, which describes the company's sustainability approach and highlights some of its sustainability projects.
“CHS is integrating sustainability into our core businesses and creating opportunities for owners and customers,” says President and CEO Jay Debertin. “In 2022, we added dedicated leaders and support resources and formalised our sustainability business function. We also focused on developing the internal governance and processes needed to execute long-term success related to environmental and social factors.”
CHS's activities will help the company reduce its environmental impact, respond to opportunities for improved sustainability, and continue to build a better future for the farmers and ranchers who own the cooperative system.
CHS vice president, sustainability and innovation, and chief sustainability officer Megan Rock said: “As we formalise our sustainability function, we will continue to develop our efforts in environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) programmes through a dedicated climate director and by expanding our innovation team, as technology advancements will play a key role in long-term success for CHS and our owners."
CHS will put a lot of effort into ensuring owners and other stakeholders understand how the company handles ESG reporting. For example, the 2022 CHS Sustainability Report will include definitions and explanations. As part of its efforts to be more environmentally friendly, the company is also looking into technologies that can help automate the supply chain, sense the soil in real time, and track row crops.
Rock says, "CHS is committed to working closely with cooperative owners, customers, and other stakeholders to develop an outcome-based approach to sustainability that leads to a stronger cooperative system that can feed the world through sustainable business practices that protect and preserve our limited resources."
