Cargill Plans Save-the-Forest Initiative

CEO: "Farming and forests can β€” and must β€” coexist"

Cargill Inc., Minnetonka, MN, is expanding its anti-deforestation goals and human rights commitment across three of its most troubled supply chains β€” soybeans, cocoa and palm oil.

According to a report at the Star Tribune, with environmental changes a growing concern for many commodity companies, Cargill said last week it is enacting two new policies β€” one on sustainable soy in South America and the other on new human rights standards β€” and is updating its four-year-old forest policy.

"Farming and forests can β€” and must β€” coexist," Dave MacLennan, Cargill's chief executive, said in a statement. "The world depends on agriculture to feed a growing population but also depends on the long-term viability of our natural resources."
