We had the great pleasure of hosting an investor call with a group of asset managers and Brent Norwood, Head of Investor Relations at John Deere. It’s one thing to read about a company, or to listen to an earnings call. It’s another thing to have a live conversation about it!
Like all companies today, they’re dealing with persistent challenges. They’re coming up with long term solutions that are making them a stronger company, too, like making improvements in their supply chain resiliency and procurement logistics. For shorter term challenges they’re adding production days to the back half of the year to keep up with demand – business is good.
We asked Brent about ESG & Sustainability, and that was the highlight for me. The company says that their equipment improves efficiencies and delivers “better outcomes, both from an economic and sustainability perspective.” Brent went into detail about that – it’s amazing what their machines and technology can do… Customers are producing more crops with less labor, in an environmentally friendly way.
My explanation doesn’t do their story justice – trust me.
“Thank You” to Brent Norwood and the entire John Deere company for your support. We’re doing great things socially through the success of our business and your support is meaningful!
