Conventional agriculture is a driver of climate change, but agriculture also has a profound potential to help mitigate dangerous climate events. AGCO Finance is committed to help farmers in their sustainability journey. We are on a journey too as to how we can do this in the best way. For over 30 years we have been with farmers along their way. We will continue to do so and help accelerate farmers’ transition to more sustainable business operations. This is our joint climate journey, for current and future generations.
