We Are Solving Some of Today’s Toughest Agriculture Issues
Since Day 1, AeroFarms has been a mission-driven company thinking of all of the stakeholders from the environment, to our team members, to our broader community, and to our investors who are all aligned with our mission of growing the best plants possible for the betterment of humanity. We are proud to serve as a catalyst for positive transformational change not only in agriculture but also business overall.
Arable Land Loss
Overuse of Pesticides
Supply Chain Challenges
Business as a Force For Good
We are fundamentally transforming agriculture by growing flavorful, safe, healthy food all year round in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way. It’s the “how” not just the “what” that is important to us. We firmly believe in using business as a force for good, and put people, planet and purpose first in every aspect of our business. AeroFarms is proud to be the first indoor vertical farm to become a Certified B Corporation. The B Corp Certification is a rigorous social and environmental evaluation and public scorecard that goes above and beyond the triple bottom line to include our practices in governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
Addressing the United Nations' SDGs
AeroFarms' business model is built to address 12 of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, and was honored to be a recipient of the inaugural Global SDG Awards celebrating private-sector leadership in the advancement of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
Global In Scale, Local In Impact
