2022 Update: Corporate Sustainability Report
At the center of our Environmental, Social Responsibility and Governance commitment is the principle of Sustainable Agriculture. While this concept has been used by many to mean many things, we have given it a very clear meaning. In our parlance, Sustainable Agriculture is broad enough to encompass a comprehensive ESG and Sustainability program, but clear enough to give us direction in our outlook and purpose in our activities.
In anticipation of our full 2023 CSR report, we reemphasize our commitment to Sustainable Agriculture and the three pillars of climate equity, environmental equity, and food equity. We also report on our progress with our sustainability initiatives and provide a 2017-2021 update of operational and environmental metrics. Future updates will include additional reporting of our international business and further disclosures of ESG projects, targets, and goals.
We at American Vanguard Corporation are committed to global leadership in sustainability and recognize the importance of our role and effect on the planet – from our local communities to the global environment. We are committed to safely and responsibly operating our manufacturing facilities, developing our products, and managing our footprint. Throughout our organization, we strive to improve the lives and well-being of our employees and those in our communities, as well as our customers.
