Chamber member Tyson Foods, Inc. is releasing its first sustainability report since 2014 in five segments over five weeks.
The five segments cover the corporation’s animal well-being efforts, corporate giving, environmental stewardship, product development and workforce.
From Tyson’s website:
Each segment is designed to highlight the company’s performance in an open, honest and understandable way, which reflects Tyson Foods’ commitment to share its successes and challenges in a meaningful and relevant manner.
“Our newest report shows we’re committed to being more transparent about how we do business and our desire for continuous improvement,” said Leigh Ann Johnston, director of sustainability for Tyson Foods. “We’re providing more details – from how we’re reducing antibiotic use and auditing animal well-being on farms to our management of water and workplace safety – than ever before. We recognize that today’s consumers expect access to a new level of information so they know the food they buy is produced responsibly.”
The report also reveals Tyson donated more than $8 million during the 2015 fiscal year, including efforts in hunger relief, education, health and nutrition, environmental and sustainable agriculture, and community development.
