Food security has moved up national agendas as governments recognize that hunger and malnutrition are set to increase unless there is a step-up in production. Agriculture has to respond to the global challenge of feeding a growing population with limited natural resources while producing more from existing farmland in an environmentally friendly way.
Syngenta is uniquely placed to help growers around the world farm sustainably, through our offer of seeds and crop protection products which enhance yields and improve crop quality. That is why corporate responsibility (CR) is core to everything we do – from developing innovative products that help farmers grow more from less to running our operations responsibly. The success of our business is intimately connected with our CR goals. Therefore we have integrated business reporting with CR performance in our Annual Review and include our approach to CR issues in the relevant areas of this corporate website.
