Our Commitment to Sustainability

At Syngenta, we believe growers can produce enough crops to meet the world’s growing demands for food, feed, fiber and fuel while safeguarding the environment for future generations. We have developed sustainability initiatives and commitments to encourage sustainable practices and innovation in agriculture.

Sustainability Initiatives

For more than a decade, Syngenta Sustainable Solutions has partnered with the value chain, trusted advisors and farmers to promote advances in modern agriculture, crop production transparency and in continuing with their freedom to operate.

Measuring the Results

Every grower has a sustainability story to tell and Syngenta Sustainable Solutions offers different ways to frame that story. Data are important to the story – but we know that data collection doesn’t need to be hard.

Syngenta Sustainable Solutions offers two pathways to telling your sustainability story.

Both approaches allow growers to track and measure stewardship and conservation practices like nutrient management plans, soil health practice, resistance management plans, buffer zones and environmental efficiency indicators. Our data confidentiality pledge is essential to all of our digital technologies.

“AgriEdge has made me a better steward of the land because I can now quickly say, ‘No, I’m at my maximum loads on that product, so I need to do something else’. Or ‘Wait a minute, I don’t need to apply this close together.’ I just really think there’s so much that I’ve gained from the AgriEdge technology and record keeping capabilities.”

Partnering for Impact

Syngenta Sustainable Solutions recognizes there are many different needs for measuring on-farm sustainability for the value chain. We work with our collaborators to identify the best methodologies to achieve their specific needs.

SAI Platform

New Sustainability Standard with SAI Equivalency

Syngenta, a Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform member, released the Sustainable Outcomes in Agriculture (SOA) standard through its Cropwise™ Sustainability app. The Standard has achieved Gold-level equivalency against SAI Platform’s FSA 3.0, the highest level of equivalency. Syngenta is the first agriculture input provider to launch a standard and to receive FSA 3.0 gold-equivalency. Through this benchmark, farmers, retailers and consumer packaged goods companies can make incremental progress on their sustainability journey.

With over 150 members, they are at the forefront in pioneering sustainable agriculture around the world.
