Corteva Agriscience Announces Sustainability Goal Progress

Corteva Agriscience released their 2022 Sustainability and ESG Report which provided an update on the company’s commitments that address environmental, economic and social challenges according to a release.

“Sustainability is at the heart of our business,” said Chuck Magro, CEO of Corteva Agriscience. “We are working to solve complex food and energy security challenges while preserving the long-term health and viability of farmland and other natural resources.”

Corteva’s sustainability criteria are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Ninety percent of the new crop protection products and all new seed products meet that sustainability criteria.

“Our research and development teams are focused on developing sustainable solutions that increase productivity and profitability potential while improving resilience to increasing weed, insect, disease, and extreme weather pressures and protecting our natural resources,” said Sam Eathington, chief technology and chief digital officer of Corteva Agriscience. “Our innovation engine is delivering solutions that give farmers more options to improve yield potential and minimize inputs to build whole-farm systems that are strong and stable.”

Corteva is also working on meeting their Inclusion Diversity & Equity (ID&E) goals.
