ADM and its global regenerative agriculture program were named a finalist in the Enterprise category of Fast Company’s 2024 World Changing Ideas Awards. Selected from a pool of more than 1,300 entries, ADM was one of 127 finalists recognized for developing creative solutions to today’s most pressing issues.

ADM is scaling up efforts to enhance the sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint of the value chains in which it operates. Its global regenerative agriculture program supports growers in adopting regenerative farming practices that protect and improve soil health, biodiversity, climate, and water resources while supporting farming business development. Simultaneously, ADM connects these climate-smart producers with downstream CPG brands—such as PepsiCo, Nestlé, and Carlsberg—to help them create more sustainably sourced products and reduce their Scope 3 emissions.

In 2023, ADM delivered more than 2.8 million regenerative acres, exceeding its 2-million-acre goal, partnering with more than 28,000 growers of corn, soybeans, wheat, peanuts, cotton, sorghum, canola, and barley as it expanded its regenerative agriculture efforts to new regions, including the launch of programs in Europe and Latin America.

Building on the program’s growth in 2023, in April 2024 ADM announced that it is now targeting 3.5 million regenerative acres in 2024 and is increasing its 2025 goal from 4 million to 5 million acres globally—an area roughly the size of Massachusetts.
