AGCO’s Sustainability Report for 2022 Displays Significant Progress

The 2022 Sustainability Report was just made public by AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), a global manufacturer and distributor of farm machinery, infrastructure, and precision agriculture technology. The study highlights AGCO’s advancements in the areas of governance, social responsibility, and the environment as it works to provide farmer-focused solutions to sustainably feed the world.

In order to better the sustainability outcomes for farmers, AGCO is leading the industry in innovation. We are also decarbonizing our operations and giving our talented and diverse employees a more secure and enjoyable work environment. As we collaborate to support farmers in feeding the world responsibly, I’m pleased of the progress we’ve made and committed to accelerating it, said Eric Hansotia, Chairman, President, and CEO of AGCO.

New ideas for farms

AGCO’s global brands assist farmers in enhancing the health and resilience of their soil, whether it be through the development of intelligent, network-connected tractors for farmer customers that lessen soil compaction by limiting the number of times machinery passes through the field, or precision technologies that allow farmers to sequester carbon. Radicle AgronomicsTM, a revolutionary collection of soil-analysis tools for agronomists, and Radicle LabTM, the first completely automated soil laboratory in the world, were both introduced by Precision Planting in 2022. These innovations are intended to significantly increase the accuracy and timeliness of soil sampling.


Helping farmers develop profitably and sustainably is essential to AGCO’s commitment to sustainability. The brands of AGCO provide cutting-edge products and technologies to drastically cut or eliminate emissions from agricultural equipment. The newly introduced AGCO Power CORETM engines achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and are suitable for renewable diesel, allowing up to 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Launched in 2024, the Fendt e100 tractor will be entirely electronic.

Also reducing its ecological footprint is AGCO. By reducing the emissions intensity of manufacturing operations by 31% from the baseline in 2020, AGCO achieved Scope 1 and 2 goals three years ahead of schedule in 2022. Product management, engineering, and supply chain leaders are working together to define the long-term decarbonization roadmap after a thorough evaluation of Scope 3 value chain emissions has been completed.

Those We Are

Creating a work environment where employees can advance and flourish is the first step in providing farmers with top-notch goods and services. Through its yearly “Voices” survey, AGCO actively seeks out and reacts to employee feedback. In a 2002 survey of almost 20,000 workers, 88% said they were pleased to work for AGCO.

Employee experiences are built on a base of safety, health, and well-being. The percentage of safety incidents at AGCO is falling year over year, with a 14% drop in 2022. By 2025, AGCO now intends to attain a total incident rate below 1.5.
