Who we are

Who we are 

We are a business that helps humanity face its toughest challenge: how to feed a rising population, sustainably. Our world class science and innovative crop solutions transform how crops are grown to enable millions of growers to make better use of available resources. 
At the heart of our contribution is The Good Growth Plan, our six commitments to address critical challenges the world faces to achieve food security. Our business – and the world’s food security – depend on sustainable natural resources, healthy ecosystems and thriving rural communities. Which is why we cooperate with industry partners, governments and NGOs to support the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our Corporate Governance is aligned with international standards and practice and helps us achieve not only our business objectives, but also helps create value to society that is demonstrated by our strong environmental and social performance.
