“We built our sustainability strategy around our impacts. We evaluated what we were doing well, what we could do better, and summarized what we did in 2023,” says Bonnie Dobchuk, Sustainability Director. “A sustainable business solves the problems of both people and planet in a profitable way. When we solve a problem, we make an impact.

This was done using impact materiality as guided by the Global Reporting Initiative.”

“Farm sustainability is increasingly being challenged by the broader public,” says Wes Anderson, VP of Agronomy at Croptimistic. “SWAT MAPS service providers and farmers are achieving major environmental sustainability impacts and our white paper on The Role of SWAT MAPS in Environmental Stewardship outlines these clearly.
