Maximizing your business while minimizing impact on the environment

At Cargill and Horizon Milling, corporate responsibility is part of everything we do. It is a company-wide commitment to apply our global knowledge and experience to help meet complex economic, environmental and social challenges wherever we do business. Four commitments anchor the hundreds of programs and initiatives we have underway at any given time:

Environmental innovation

At Cargill, we minimize our environmental impact, pioneer the commercial use of renewable raw materials and help customers reduce their impact on the environment.

  • Horizon Milling strives to lead the industry in reducing greenhouse gases by using the least amount of energy per pound of flour we produce.
  • From 2006 to 2009, Horizon Milling reduced methyl bromide (pesticide) consumption by 45%.

Responsible supply chains

Horizon Milling partners with industry, governments, non-governmental organizations and local communities to identify and encourage sustainable practices.

  • Horizon Milling helps farmers grow wheat more sustainably with fertilizing technologies that allow them to apply nutrients only where needed – reducing fertilizer and energy use and emissions, while increasing productivity per acre.

Food safety leadership

Cargill works with customers and partners to develop science-based solutions to promote food, feed and product safety to the same high standards globally.

Rural development

Cargill helps raise rural incomes and living standards, helps improve local agriculture and makes investments that strengthen local economies.

  • Horizon Milling employees have dedicated over 10,000 hours of service to our communities for causes including community restoration, housing, hunger and children's nutrition.
