Sustainable U.S. Peanuts Initiative

In 2021, the peanut industry came together to fund an effort to document, track, and help improve the sustainability of U.S. peanut production, starting at the field level. The Sustainable U.S. Peanuts initiative serves as the umbrella for sustainability-related efforts. As well as providing sustainability information for peanut buyers, manufacturers, and consumers, it aims to help peanut growers estimate and understand their environmental footprint and share ways to reduce it over time.
