Bunge and Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture announce the seamless integration of the sustainability metrics of Field to Market’s Fieldprint® Platform into Bunge Centerfield™.

Bunge is the first grain and oilseed processor to integrate these metrics into its platform, offering Field to Market’s outcomes-based approach to measuring sustainability directly to farmers.

The partnership also supports downstream customers interested in assessing the aggregated sustainability performance of corn grown in the United States.

Bunge Centerfield is a partnership between growers, food companies and Bunge. The program collects farm-level data to promote supply chain transparency and sustainable agriculture, with aggregated information then shared with participating growers and food customers.

Centerfield’s integration with the Fieldprint Platform utilizes Field to Market’s common measurement framework of eight key sustainability indicators available to U.S. farmers, streamlining the process of documenting and demonstrating their stewardship through the support of Bunge’s merchandising managers.

“For nearly 200 years, Bunge has been deeply committed to advancing responsible agriculture. Centerfield’s partnership with Field to Market helps us further this commitment by facilitating greater transparency and stronger connectivity from farm to fork,” says Megan Weidner, vice president of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at Bunge in North America. “By integrating Field to Market’s outcomes-based sustainability metrics into Centerfield, we offer farmers a simpler, streamlined approach to analyze and share their sustainability performance. Downstream customers can access the aggregated data, increasing transparency throughout the supply chain.”

Utilizing metrics developed through Field to Market’s multi-stakeholder, consensus-driven approach, the integrated platform also enables farmers to compare the sustainability performance against regional, state and national benchmarks for key environmental indicators – critical to effective sustainability management.

“The combination of the Fieldprint Platform’s sustainability metrics with Bunge Centerfield offers farmers a powerful tool for managing and advancing their stewardship and conservation efforts,” said Rod Snyder, president of Field to Market. “By using the industry’s most widely accepted sustainability measurement framework, Bunge streamlines sustainability reporting and further advances Field to Market’s efforts to unite the value chain to deliver sustainable outcomes for agriculture.”
