Smallholder farmer, Henry Tum, saw his labor, water use and expenses drop since establishing a greenhouse on his 5-acre farm in western Kenya.

Highlights of John Deere’s environmental stewardship and citizenship efforts were included in the 2016 Business Roundtable Sustainability Report, published in April.

In the ninth annual report, “Create, Grow, Sustain: People and Technology at Work,” Deere & Company Chairman and CEO Sam Allen and leaders of other U.S. companies explain how their businesses are working to improve the quality of life and build a more sustainable world while driving economic growth and job creation.

Allen provided examples of Deere’s efforts to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, such as installing an energy-efficient LED lighting system at John Deere Cylinder Works in Moline, Illinois, and replacing a coal-fired powerhouse with natural gas boilers at John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline, Illinois.?

John Deere’s higher purpose is to support improved living standards for people around the world by serving those linked to the land.”

Also highlighted were efforts by the John Deere Foundation to provide mobile training to smallholder farmers in developing countries and to assist these farmers on gaining access to affordable financing. These resources help smallholder farmers strengthen their ability to grow their income and improve their quality of life.

“John Deere’s higher purpose is to support improved living standards for people around the world by serving those linked to the land,” Allen said in the report. “We are proud of our employees and their efforts to help us fulfill this purpose in a socially conscious, environmentally responsible way.”

The sustainability report is published annually by Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies, and is available on the organization’s website.
