Growmark is launching a new sustainability initiative called “Endure” that will reinforce the company's commitment to sustainability. The program is a system-wide effort to ensure continued profitability for the company, owners and customers, while developing programs that help the environment for the greater good.

"In the Growmark system, we believe it is our responsibility to ensure our earth and industry perform sustainably," said Growmark Chief Executive Officer Jim Spradlin. "We go to great lengths to apply business ethics, invest in communities and engage our employees in practices that enhance the profitability and sustainability of agriculture," he added.

Each area of the Growmark systems will launch programs over the coming weeks, months and years. The initiatives from agronomy, energy, facility planning, grain, logistics, talent management, young producers, and the Growmark Foundation will centralize activities and focus to ensure the ability to endure over time. More Information on Endure activities will be communicated when and as available.

The announcement appears to have no program substance behind it at the moment because no examples were provided on what Endure will mean in specific actions.
