I’m pleased to share that our team received both the Sustainability Leadership Award and the Sustainability Product of the Year Award as part of the Business Intelligence Group’s 2018 Sustainability Awards program. On behalf of the entire Pivot Bio team, we are thrilled to be a part of these awards that honor those who have sustainability as an integral part of their core business practice and overall mission.
We are committed to creating a more sustainable future in agriculture and I’m confident our technology can improve crop productivity while reducing fertilizer pollution. Thank you Business Intelligence Group for recognizing how our work can help produce cleaner air and water for generations to come.
Pivot Bio is focused on providing farmers with a better solution to crop nutrition. Farmers have historically relied on synthetic fertilizers to provide their crops with the nitrogen they require to support plant growth and development. This fertilizer is critical to crop production and contributes to an abundant global food supply, accounting for nearly half of the world’s dietary energy. Yet fertilizer use has adverse impacts on the environment including polluting waterways through surface runoff and groundwater leaching. Our nitrogen-producing microbes provide corn farmers with a cleaner replacement for synthetic nitrogen fertilizer – providing farmers with a new tool that works within their existing practices that also supports a more sustainable future.
“We are proud to reward and recognize Pivot Bio for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
Pivot Bio is a leader in the field of precision microbial adaptation. Our unique process is designed to realize the full potential of microbes at the genetic level, allowing farmers to change the way they provide nutrition to crops, reduce usage of fertilizers and provide a sustainable approach to feeding our world’s growing population.
