Reducing waste is good for our business and the environment.
Reducing Waste and Conserving Natural Resources
Earth Day Team Building
Team members around the country pitched in, picked up and dug deep for Earth Day 2018. From tree plantings to river cleanups, we showed our commitment to a more sustainable future for our communities, our company and the world. Projects we took on included:
• Planting trees and shrubs along a stormwater swale to capture sediment and prevent erosion due to rain at our New Holland Complex.
• Sponsoring Lancaster Farmland Trust’s annual Pedal to Preserve bike ride, which supports the Trust’s mission of preserving local farmland.
• Supplying gloves, trash bags and water, as well as team member volunteers, for an Arkansas River cleanup in Finney County.
• Hosting an event with The Nature Conservancy at our Corporate Auditorium to highlight what we’ve accomplished together on waterway conservation.

Helping Support Supply Chain Transparency
“PrimeAsia has built its business on a platform of transparency, environmental stewardship, sustainability and continuous measurable improvement. One of the critical measurements we rely on for our own business and for our supply chain is the Leather Working Group (LWG) audit criteria to determine best in class. Tyson, as a core supplier to PrimeAsia, has continued to demonstrate their commitment to the same values, and this commitment is recognized by their Gold LWG accreditation. PrimeAsia remains committed to doing business with a supply chain that shares our values, and we are honored to have Tyson as one of our core suppliers.”
Jon Clark CEO PrimeAsia Leather
“Tyson Fresh Meat and Hides & Tannery Group have been members of Leather Working Group Ltd (LWG) since 2008 and were among the first leather manufacturers to have their facilities audited. As an elected member of the Executive Committee of LWG for the last three years, Tyson’s input has helped steer the direction and work of the group, ensuring it continues to meet the needs of its members and the wider leather supply chain. Tyson’s commitment to leading and demonstrating environmental improvement is evident, and we hope to continue supporting Tyson in their efforts for environmental stewardship.”
