AgroFresh Solutions Strengthens Sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance Commitments; Clint Lewis Details



PHILADELPHIA, PA - After many successful achievements in the sustainability space, AgroFresh Solutions has outlined its long-term commitments. Through its first-ever Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) report, the company is reinforcing its dedication to global customers to deliver new products, services, and solutions that improve produce quality and reduce food loss and waste.

Clint Lewis, Chief Executive Officer, AgroFresh“AgroFresh's commitment to sustainability is at the very core of what we do, and our focus on ESG goes hand-in-hand with our mission of ensuring produce freshness and reducing food waste on a global scale,” said Clint Lewis, Chief Executive Officer. “We firmly believe that reducing post-harvest losses of already-produced food is more sustainable than increasing production to compensate, and our solutions have helped keep countless tons of quality produce from being wasted. Looking ahead, we will continue to hold ourselves accountable and leverage our products, services, and technical expertise to serve our customers and help address their sustainability goals, as well as focus our innovation efforts to develop and bring to market new solutions that maximize produce freshness and help reduce food loss and waste.”

The ESG report provides a transparent view into AgroFresh's sustainability performance across a number of key areas, including benchmarks aligned with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), a press release stated. AgroFresh is leading the charge in reducing food waste, embracing all 17 UN SDGs and addressing five of them—UN SDGs 2, 9, 10, 12, and 13—within the ESG report.
