Deere has been acknowledged on this list for the sixteenth consecutive year, demonstrating the company’s dedication to ethical corporate citizenship in order to provide the food, fuel, fiber, and infrastructure necessary to support a rising world population as well as to assist Deere’s clients in performing their duties more sustainably.

In reality, Deere’s operations are firmly grounded in sustainability, from business strategies and processes to technology development. Deere recently unveiled its 2022 Sustainability Report, which detailed the company’s advancements in providing customers, dealers, stockholders, and the communities it supports with more sustainable solutions. Included in this is the business’s recently unveiled ExactShotTM on-planter fertilizer system, which enables farmers to significantly decrease the quantity of starter fertilizer required during planting by as much as 60%.

Deere’s Leap Ambitions, which are targeted and measurable objectives intended to increase economic value and sustainability for farmers and customers, serve as another pillar of the company’s long-term dedication to moral business practices and sustainability. Deere encourages environmental stewardship to safeguard the environment and support the expanding requirements of future generations as part of its mission to assist farmers in producing more with less.

We consider it a pleasure to be named one of the 2023 World’s Most Ethical Companies®. This recognition highlights how crucial it is to handle business morally and sustainably. We urge everyone to daily promote an innovative, inclusive, and honest culture as we move forward with our Smart Industrial journey.
