An initiative to drive innovation in farming & sustainable food production among EU Green Deal stakeholders
Growing for Good is an initiative comprising a set of circular conversations, organised by Corteva Agriscience, in partnership with the Financial Times Live. Through these high-level discussions we seek to harness the collective wisdom, experience, and innovative spirit of the agriculture and food community to discuss how to navigate challenges that have arisen from the implementation of the EU Green Deal. By fostering collaboration, sharing best practices, addressing challenges and seize opportunities head-on, we can build a stronger shared vision for a more sustainable food system.
The event will be hosted under ‘Chatham House Rule’ to allow for a free-flowing conversation between the panel and the invite-only high level audience.
The EU finds itself at a critical juncture in its journey towards becoming a sustainable and carbon-neutral economy. The European Commission has set ambitious targets, sparking waves of innovation and change across industries, including food production.
Realizing the ambitions of the European Green Deal, the Farm to Fork (F2F) strategy and other EU sustainability policies is vitally dependent on the food industry. The entire food chain, spanning from farmers, to traders, to the food industry, plays a crucial role.
As a part of this chain, Corteva Agriscience has continued to invest in innovation to provide farmers with sustainable solutions, reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our operations, and promote biodiversity. However, we recognize that the challenges we and the rest of the agri-food partners face in achieving sustainability goals cannot be tackled in isolation. Progress in the journey towards net-zero requires policies that take into account the heterogeneous needs and challenges faced by different actors along the food supply chain.
At Corteva, sustainability is embedded into our business, where science, technology and innovation enable us to provide the tools farmers need to feed the world while reducing environmental impacts. We’re delivering on our mission – to enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, for generations to come.
