SYNGENTA INVESTS IN CLIMATE CHANGE INNOVATION
Syngenta says it’s committing $2-Billion-dollars over the next five years targeting innovations to tackle climate change.
Alexandra Brand is the Chief Sustainability Officer of Syngenta. She tells Brownfield Ag News, “The world around us is changing. We have new consumer demands coming. We have climate change here. So, agriculture practice needs to change and adopt and I’m very sure that U.S. growers are well equipped for that journey and that they’ll continue to succeed in the future.”
Brand tells Brownfield Syngenta believes U.S. growers are the most productive in the world and they are focused on sustainability.
“We are strongly standing up for farmers being rewarded when they do good agricultural practice, when they do practices which improve soil health which reduce soil erosion and which helps to build soil organic matter.”
Brand says Syngenta’s goal is to drive two climate change technological breakthroughs to market each year. And, the company says it will reduce the carbon intensity of its operations by 50%, in support of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
