Valmont® Sustainability
Conserving Resources & Improving Life for 75 Years
Making the World Better through Sustainable Practices and Technology

Our tagline of Conserving Resources. Improving Life.® captures what we do—and why we do it. That was the case before sustainability was a trend, and increasingly, one leads to the other. Valmont works constantly to improve our operational efficiency while developing infrastructure and irrigation products that reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship. As we do so, we help to improve the standard of living for the world’s rapidly growing population.
Signing on for Sustainability and Food Security
The recently signed Agreement on Investments with the Government of Kazakhstan provides for the construction of a plant in Kazakhstan to manufacture Valley pivots, with an annual production capacity of at least 1,000 center pivot and linear irrigation machines. Valmont and Kusto have registered their Joint Venture with the Astana International Financial Centre in Nur-Sultan, the capital of Kazakhstan.
Askar Mamin
Prime Minister of Kazakhstan
“We are excited to collaborate with the recognized global leader in mechanized irrigation. We welcome Valley Irrigation’s world-class technology and production capability to Kazakhstan. This project will be an advantage to local farmers by helping them produce greater yields with less water and energy, as well as bringing increased food security to the region overall.”
Empowering the World’s Most Important Resource: People
Acting Locally and Globally to Make an Impact
Valmont strives to positively impact the lives of people every day. This goal is part of our daily work, but extends beyond that. Similar to the way our products empower communities and bring people together, we acknowledge our corporate responsibility to promote charity, equality, diversity and safety.
Inclusion and Diversity: None of us is as strong as all of us
At Valmont, we celebrate diversity and individuality in a spirit of inclusion and support. We value differing perspectives and see inclusion and diversity (I&D) not only as an element of corporate responsibility, but as a key driver of innovation—finding new and better ways to grow our business worldwide.
