Taking an integrated view on sustainability

The sustainability challenges we face on our planet are all interconnected and, together, contribute to climate change. Therefore, we need to understand the complexity of the challenges and not try to solve one problem while creating another.

We’re committed to making food safe and available everywhere, and we promise to protect what’s good – protecting our food, people and planet. By adopting an integrated approach to sustainability, we can use our expertise, technology, and partnerships to move the world’s food systems1 forward.
