“Our new vision—Sustainable high-tech solutions for farmers feeding the world—better represents our thoughtful approach to helping our farmers and our business continually find better and more sustainable ways to raise the food people need, all around the world,” said Martin Richenhagen, president and CEO of AGCO Corporation.
“As the world celebrated the 50th anniversary of Earth Day last month, we felt it was the right time to stress the importance of sustainability in our company’s vision.”
Agriculture is one of the most essential industries in the world. As the population grows to a projected 10bn people by 2050, the potential impact agriculture can have on the health of our planet is tremendous. As a global leader in agriculture, AGCO has a responsibility to help ensure we make a positive impact for the farmers who use our solutions, the communities they feed and the environment we all share.
AGCO precision agriculture tools help farms and machines run more efficiently with lower inputs and higher yields. Sustainable productivity arises through technology, innovation and integrated solutions to grow more food and deliver higher farm income.
Environmental concerns are driving society’s perception of agriculture, including animal welfare. AGCO is providing cage-free egg equipment and creates solutions to reduce stress and maximise comfort while maintaining healthy animals and encouraging natural behaviour.
