The concept of sustainability is freely discussed in a lot of places these days from farm shops to corporate boardrooms. We wanted to dig in on what that means for agriculture and turned to Louisa Parker-Smith the new director of global sustainability at Agco.

She took on the job late in 2020, and the company recently issued an in-depth sustainability report. Just what does sustainability mean for a farm equipment manufacturer? Parker-Smith shares insight on Agco's approach including the company's work in animal agriculture too. It's an opening conversation on corporate sustainability and offers insight into what that means for the company and its customers for the future.
