Providing solutions for a growing world
Our commitment to growing the world from the ground up means taking our role in protecting the planet seriously. By 2050, the agriculture sector will need to grow food for almost 10 billion people. At this pivotal moment in history we need to consider how we feed a growing world while providing nature-positive solutions.
By the year 2030, we aim to make key transformations through ambitious commitments that drive systemic change and lead the next wave of agricultural evolution.
We have developed strategic sustainability priorities that address our most material environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities. This means innovating and improving to create long-term value with global impact.
Our focus areas are:
- Feeding the Planet Sustainably:
Strengthen food security by scaling sustainable and productive agriculture
- Environment and Climate Action:
Provide solutions and platforms to achieve emissions reductions in alignment with climate science
- Inclusive Agriculture:
Support rural livelihoods and increase participation of underrepresented stakeholders in agriculture
We aim to achieve six priority commitments:
Enable Sustainable Acres
Enable growers to adopt sustainable and productive agricultural products and practices on 75 million acres globally.
Achieve Emissions Reduction
Achieve at least a 30 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (Scope 1 + 2) per tonne of our products produced, from a baseline year of 2018.
Leverage Innovation & Inclusion
Leverage our farm-focused technology partnerships and investments to drive positive impact in industry and grower innovation and inclusion.
Launch & Scale a Carbon Program
Launch and scale a comprehensive Carbon Program, empowering growers and our industry to accelerate climate-smart agriculture and soil carbon sequestration while rewarding growers for their efforts.
Invest in Low-Carbon Fertilizer
Invest in new technologies and pursue the transition to low-carbon fertilizers, including blue and green ammonia.
Create New Inclusive Financing
Create new grower financial solutions to strengthen social, economic and environmental outcomes in agriculture.
Our 2030 commitments will be challenging to achieve, but necessary, which is why we have integrated ESG into our company’s business operations and we are committed to work with stakeholders across our value chain to build a sustainable pathway forward.
These commitments are just the beginning. We also have new ESG performance targets and goals to advance our sustainability strategy. Learn More.
