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.

Reduce Our Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions

Achieve a 65% intensity reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions and 20% intensity reduction in scope 3 emissions by 2030 by committing to company-wide Science Based Targets.

As farmers and the agriculture industry face the immediate impacts of a changing climate, our commitment to Science Based Targets aligned with a 1.5oC scenario or better signals that we intend to do our part on this important issue.

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 sustainability efforts

Operate more sustainably through waste reduction, water conservation, enhanced biodiversity, increased transparency, and sustainable sourcing.

For example, 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. In addition, we will increase inclusion in our supply base to achieve 25% of global addressable spend with diverse suppliers and small businesses by 2030.
