John Kiernan, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “I’m pleased to introduce Alico’s inaugural 2021 Sustainability Report. While this is the first time that we have produced a report detailing our ESG performance, sustainability is not a new concept for us. Instead, this report is the natural outcome of treating the land as a precious resource, and of always remembering our obligations to, and connection with, the local communities in which we operate. Alico is a steward of more than five million citrus trees, and we take seriously our role in supporting a healthy environment that will thrive for generations to come.
“I’m proud of the work that Alico has done to date, even as we recognize that the journey is far from over. We know that sustainability cannot be achieved in isolation, and we are eager to continue—or in some cases, to create—partnerships with suppliers, customers, industry groups and academic institutions to tackle the most challenging environmental issues that face our industry. Together, I am confident that we can achieve ambitious sustainability goals.”
Alico, Inc. primarily operates two divisions: Alico Citrus, one of the nation’s largest citrus producers, and Land Management and Other Operations, which includes land leasing and related support operations. Learn more about Alico (Nasdaq: “ALCO”) at www.alicoinc.com.
