Our Sustainability Commitment
A commitment to sustainability has long been a key part of the Simplot business philosophy. From the very beginning our founder J.R. (Jack) Simplot focused on finding innovative ways of doing business, adapted emerging technology to improve products and devised new uses for waste materials.
Our commitment to sustainability means we are continuing to work towards producing more with less of our earth's resources as we believe this is good for our business - and simply the right thing to do.
For us sustainability goes far beyond simply establishing a company recycling program, or turning off the lights when everyone goes home. It comprises a vision to meet the economic, environmental and social needs of our employees and communities, while preserving the opportunity for future generations to do the same.
As a forward thinking company our commitment to excellence and innovation helps us improve efficiencies and competitiveness.
Our commitment to doing business sustainably is supported by the same three pillars that underpin everything we do.
Respect for resources
Simplot is committed to natural resource protection, reclamation, recycling, and compliance with environmental laws and regulations.
Spirit of innovation
Simplot places a priority on technological innovation. The Company infuses this mission in all levels of operations to improve efficiency, lower costs and reduce operational impact.
Passion for people
Simplot supports the wellbeing of our employees and their communities. The Company is highly dedicated to educational partnerships, philanthropy and volunteerism.
