Our Commitment

We’re committed to increasing the sustainability of our operations and the solutions we provide to farmers. Our 10-year commitments include innovating sustainably, establishing a climate strategy, using only sustainable packaging, and increasing our sites’ sustainability efforts.

Our 2030 Goals

Require Sustainability Criteria for New Products

Every new Corteva Agriscience product will meet our sustainability criteria by 2025.

Transformation and innovation in our agricultural system is vital to meeting future challenges. That’s why every new product concept we develop will meet specific sustainability criteria before it’s advanced into our product innovation pipeline.

Manage Our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

Establish our climate strategy for scope one, two, and three emissions, including appropriate reduction targets by June 1 2021.

We can lead by example in the effort to mitigate climate change by focusing on renewable and efficient energy opportunities, and establishing a 10-year emission reduction plan.

Scope one emissions occur from sources that are owned or controlled by the company. Scope two accounts for GHG emissions from the generation of purchased electricity consumed by the company. Scope three emissions are a consequence of the activities of the company, but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company.

Use Only Sustainable Packaging

All packaging will be reusable or recyclable by 2030.

Sustainable packaging reduces overall plastic use and waste. We’re developing new processes and technologies that allow all packaging to be reused or recycled.

Increase Our Sites' Sustainability Efforts

Operate every Corteva Agriscience site more sustainably through waste reduction, water conservation, and enhanced biodiversity. 

We’re working toward zero-landfill status for all seed operations and are conserving water in high-stress areas. We'll also employ biodiversity best practices on all Corteva sites and research farms.
