Our Approach

We only have one planet where we grow the healthy, nourishing food that feeds the world’s population. Protecting it and its resources is our collective responsibility.

0 %

of owned land set aside to preserve biodiversity and protect wildlife

0 %

of pineapples grown on our owned farms and sold in North America and Europe come from carbon neutral farms.

0 M+

trees planted since 2016 (and growing!).

We see
the impact of climate change

We’ve committed to reducing absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 27.5% by 2030 (from a 2019 base year) and reducing absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services, upstream transportation and distribution, waste generated in operations, and employee commuting by 12.3% (from a 2020 base year) by 2030.

In 2021, we reduced scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 22.5% (compared to 2019 base year), only 5% shy of our 2030 goal.


Our emissions reductions targets were approved by the Science Based Target initiative, and we are one of the first agricultural producers to have our targets approved.

Protecting our water to protect our planet

Conceptualizing water resiliency beyond the boundaries of our own operations is critical, as climate risk and stakeholder actions throughout our watershed will have an impact on our water availability.

We are among 20% of companies in our industry that implement current best practices having received an A- CDP score in water, with an average of B- in North America.
