Sustainable Practices

Primient is driving sustainability from the ground up, championing pioneering programs and leading impactful change in our local communities. We're committed to making a positive and lasting difference in our industry and in the places we call home.

Building a Sustainable Future in the Field and Out in Our Communities

We are an invested industry and community stakeholder and gladly take up the role of engaged partner in building a sustainable and vibrant future for all. 

 

In 2018, as part of Tate & Lyle, we launched a first-of-its-kind sustainability pilot program with partner Truterra™ - the sustainable solutions business of Land O’Lakes, one of America’s largest farmer-owned cooperatives.   

 

That first year, the program enrolled an initial 310,000 acres across the Midwest. A year later, with encouraging pilot results in hand, the program was expanded to 1.5 million acres, representing the equivalent amount of corn the company purchases globally each year. 

 

Fast forward to today. 

 

Now, as Primient, we proudly carry the ground-breaking program forward into our new business, knowing that together with our program, producer, and customer partners, we're continuing to meet our responsible sourcing commitments while also working together to achieve Scope 3 greenhouse gas reductions for a brighter future.

 

As an active member of Field to Market®*, we are proud to have the largest registered continuous improvement project to date, taking our legacy to all new heights.

 

*Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, is a US-based collaboration extending throughout the agricultural value chain focused on providing opportunities for continuous improvement in environmental outcomes. 
Reduce Our
Carbon Footprint

We are working hard to reduce the greenhouse gases from both our value chain and our operations, improving energy efficiency, and air quality.

Reduce
Water Use

Water is used extensively throughout our operations. We are taking steps to use less water through substantial water reuse projects.

Beneficially
Use Waste

We understand that all waste generated through our operations can be repurposed. That’s why we’re creating sustainable solutions for the beneficial use of all operational waste streams.

Supporting our Local Communities Starts with Us

We are proud to continue a 100+ year tradition of giving back to the communities we call home. Through sharing our time, talent and resources, we are truly invested in making a positive and lasting difference in areas of critical need that we know are essential building blocks to community vibrancy.

 

Across our locations, you’ll find our local teams personally and actively involved with our charitable partner experts, leading and supporting meaningful projects and programs.
