ME NewsWire/Business Wire

DULUTH, Ga - Wednesday, October 1st 2014

AGCO (NYSE: AGCO), a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, today announced the publication of its 2013 global Sustainability Report. “We continue to focus our business on high-tech solutions to help farmers satisfy the world’s growing need for food, fuel and fiber,” said Martin Richenhagen, Chairman, President and CEO of AGCO. “As part of this focus, we are committed to fundamental changes in our operations rather than short-term fixes as we work toward achieving our long-term sustainability targets.”

The 2013 Sustainability Report is an executive summary that provides an overview of AGCO’s progress highlights in environmental and social challenges, with a focus on:
            
            

REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT FROM FACTORY TO FARM
            

An increase in our remanufactured parts business not only enhances our product stewardship, but also supports farmers with better parts availability.
            
            

COLLABORATING FOR CHANGE
            

Detailed action plans to continue to manage the social risks in our purchasing actions.
            
            

ENGAGING OUR CLOSEST STAKEHOLDERS
            

Continued improvement of our safety performance through a new “Focus” program.
            

AGCO’s sustainability objectives were developed to provide the biggest impact as we prioritize the pressing global economic, environmental and social issues facing AGCO’s stakeholders. Aligning with the Global Reporting Initiative™ (GRI) 3.1 reporting guidelines, the report gives a transparent update on performance to date in relation to AGCO’s sustainability goals.
