Almendras: California y sus metas sustentables en la producción al año 2025
California almond community set four ambitious goals aligning with our vision to make life better by what we grow and how we grow.
Established by the Almond Board of California’s Board of Directors with input from a broad spectrum of stakeholders, the Almond Orchard 2025 Goals built on decades of progress. Yet, for the first time, we publicly committed to specific objectives, working to grow almonds in better, safer and healthier ways, all of which care
for our communities and the environment.
Specifically, the California almond community has committed to the following goals by 2025:
- Reduce the amount of water used to grow a pound of almonds by 20%.
- Achieve zero waste in our orchards by putting everything we grow to optimal use.
- Increase adoption of environmentally friendly pest management tools by 25%.
- Reduce dust during almond harvest by 50%.
Committing to the goals was a tangible demonstration of our dedication to continuous improvement and a major step forward for our community and California agriculture as a whole. It was also the easy part.
