At Tyson Foods, our ambition is to be the most sustainable and transparent food company in the world. We embrace big challenges and are constantly looking for new ways to improve our business in order to continue feeding people responsibly.
2020 was a challenging and unprecedented year, and I’m thankful to all of my colleagues for their hard work and relentless focus to make health and safety a top priority, while delivering safe, nutritious and responsibly produced food to feed the world.
This year, I’m proud to introduce you to our 2020 Progress Report and our new sustainability framework: the “Formula to Feed the Future.” We know that future success will require collaboration and input from many different stakeholders to create a food system that is both resilient and equitable for all. The three pillars of our Formula to Feed the Future include empowering people, customers and communities; conserving natural resources and protecting our planet; and innovating for smart, responsible agriculture.
For the first time, our digital Progress Report also includes an ESG Hub that provides a detailed view of all of our sustainability initiatives, including our ESG related policies and ESG Data Center. Through this report and future reports, our intent is to be transparent about our practices, policies and positions, as well as our goals and the progress we are making towards them.
Thank you to our 139,000 Tyson Foods team members, customers, suppliers and other partners whose work helps us to deliver on our goals and commitments. This past year has shown us that we can get through anything together, and I’m optimistic about our shared future to bring nutritious, affordable and accessible protein to the world.
