Corporate responsibility is at the heart of everything we do. Our ambition is to bring greater food security to an increasingly populous world in an environmentally sustainable way by creating a worldwide step-change in farm productivity.
Through The Good Growth Plan, we have set specific, ambitious and measurable targets, which focus on boosting resource efficiency, rejuvenating ecosystems and strengthening rural communities. We are partnering with growers, researchers and industry stakeholders across Australia to make a meaningful contribution towards our six global commitments. Each year, we recognise innovation, best practice and leadership in Australian and New Zealand agribusiness in support of these goals through our Growth Awards.
We are also committed to developing our people, reducing our environmental footprint, enhancing our social engagement, raising supply chain sustainability and doing business responsibility.
Our Connections program, run in collaboration with Rimfire Resources, links together students, organisations, institutions and farmers from around the world to increase access to technology for growers and enhance agronomy knowledge for stakeholders. It also provides a platform to develop the next generation of leaders in Australian agriculture.
We are a global leader in product stewardship and are committed to supporting growers and applicators to ensure the safe and optimal use, and disposal, of our products. In Australia, we partner with ChemCert and drumMUSTER to ensure key stewardship information is integrated into industry training courses and support the disposal and recycling of cleaned crop protection drums.
We also run QUEST, an online stewardship training program which offers the latest technical, safety and application advice on key Syngenta products.
