The heads of several agribusiness companies last week made a new commitment to sustainability.

Council on SustainabilityElanco president Jeff Simmons, Kellogg CEO John Bryant, and Chris Policinski, President and CEO of Land O’ Lakes, joined former Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman to discuss what sustainability means to their companies last Thursday and to launch a new council.

These companies, along with DuPont Pioneer, launched the Council on Sustainability and Innovation with the support of the Bipartisan Policy Center. Glickman began by saying, “Companies at every stage along the food chain are facing a wealth of challenges including weather & climate, a growing population, nutrition, and other challenges to a stable food supply. The business community and food industry is powerful force for change. That’s why these leaders from agriculture and food are creating a Council on Sustainability and Innovation; creating a platform to highlight the initiatives and activities that the private sector is taking.”
