Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture today announced goals that its member companies — including General Mills, Kellogg’s, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Cargill — have committed to in an effort to advance sustainable agriculture in the US.
Field to Market and its members pledge to deliver:

  • Sustained improvement of land use efficiency by increasing productivity on US cropland, conserving native habitat, and enhancing landscape quality.
  • Sustained contribution to solving regional water quality problems as evidenced by reductions in sediment, phosphorus, nitrogen, and pesticide loads from US cropland.
  • Sustained reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from US cropland per unit of output.
  • Sustained contribution to solving regional water scarcity problems through continual improvement in irrigation water use efficiency and conservation.
  • Sustained improvement in energy use efficiency from US crop production.
