Lamb Weston Holdings released its inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report on June 2. Entitled “Sustainable in Every Way,” it outlines the way sustainable business practices are built into the frozen potato product company’s value chain.
“This report highlights work that Lamb Weston has always believed in – operating with integrity to support the long-term sustainability of our business,” said Tom Werner, chief executive officer of the Eagle, Idaho, USA-headquartered company. “I’m proud to share this overview, which tells the story of our efforts to be good stewards of the land and resources we need to make our products, and how we incorporate sustainability into every aspect of our business.”
The document focuses on sustainable practices through four distinct parts of the value chain: Protect, Plant, Produce and Provide. It covers data and activities from Fiscal Year 2019, and includes information on the company’s progress against goals set in 2016.
“From the fields where potatoes are grown to proactive customer partnerships, Lamb Weston always strives for more and never settles. Because, when we look at a potato, we see possibilities,” said Werner.
