Goals, Targets and KPIs

The United Nations Development Programme created the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The 17 SDGs provide clear guidelines and targets for countries and governments, although industry still has a vital role to help achieve these goals. At ADM, we have undertaken a mapping exercise to determine which SDGs align with our business objectives and in turn allow us to make the greatest contribution toward achievement. Specifically, we are focusing our efforts toward Zero Hunger, Clean Water and Sanitation, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Climate Action, and Life On Land.

Below are highlights of some of our activities that support our commitment to these SDGs, as well as some of our other company goals.

New Environmental Goals

After meeting our “15x20” environmental goals ahead of schedule, we engaged WSP Global to conduct an in-depth feasibility study to help shape an ambitious new set of goals to further reduce our environmental footprint.
