GROWMARK is launching a new sustainability initiative called Endure that will reinforce the company's commitment to sustainability.
The program is a system-wide effort to ensure continued profitability for the company, owners and customers while developing programs that help the environment and the greater good, Growmark explained.
"In the GROWMARK System, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure our Earth and industry perform sustainably," said GROWMARK chief executive officer Jim Spradlin. "We go to great lengths to apply business ethics, invest in communities and engage our employees in practices that enhance the profitability and sustainability of agriculture."
Each area of the GROWMARK System will launch programs over the coming weeks, months and years. The initiatives from agronomy, energy, facility planning, grain, logistics, talent management, young producers and the GROWMARK Foundation will centralize activities and focus to ensure the ability to endure over time. Information on Endure activities will be communicated when available.
GROWMARK is a regional cooperative with annual sales of $8.8 billion (fiscal 2015 data) that provides agronomy, energy, facility planning and logistics products and services as well as grain marketing and risk management services in more than 40 U.S. states and Ontario. GROWMARK owns the FS trademark, which is used by affiliated member cooperatives. More information is available at www.growmark.com
