Greenfield Louisiana’s state-of-the-art export grain terminal will help the West Bank transition to a cleaner, more sustainable local economy that builds prosperity while also honoring and protecting the natural, cultural and historic resources of the region.

Central to this transition is its commitment to combatting the legacy of environmental injustice that has historically damaged the health and well-being of Black communities along the Mississippi. Greenfield will be the most technologically advanced and environmentally-sound facility of its kind in North America, creating good-paying, safe green-jobs in a growing industry.

Its economic benefits will include investments in training and workforce development support for pillars of the community like West St. John High School, hundreds of additional jobs and activity at local small businesses, and millions of dollars in new tax revenue.
