With changes in our climate becoming more prevalent, increasing strain will be put on our ability to produce crops for food. Through the products we sell we aim to be ‘Land Positive’. This means we will save more land through use of our crop and seed products than the amount of land required to grow our bio-based raw materials. Being land positive is especially important to Croda, as we have a target to increase the bio-based content of our raw materials, without the expense of land use for food production.
- Net zero. We are already ‘land net zero’ as our range of biostimulants, adjuvants and seed coatings save more land than is used to grow all of our bio-based raw materials.
- 50% of our land area saved is in Asia and Latin America, where there is greatest demand for food productivity and the highest threat of deforestation.
- VeritasTM technology breakthrough launched, a biostimulant that increases nutrient mobility in soybean plants leading to increased crop yields and resilience.
- Awarded the Syngenta 2020 Supplier Partnership Award, recognising suppliers making the most significant contributions.
