How we do it

How we do it

 At the heart of our business are innovation, ethical operations and a collaborative mindset. 

Our research and development leads the agricultural industry: we spend US$1.4bn a year on R&D and regularly bring new products to market, even though this can take up to 13 years. 

Our Corporate Responsibility performance – in areas including environment, labor practices, and human rights – adheres to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), which helps businesses communicate their impact on sustainability issues. 

Collaboration is essential to our innovation. We work in partnership with academia, NGOs and other agricultural businesses, and we encourage innovators to reach out to us through our thoughtseeders® platform.
