In our Good Growth Plan, Syngenta commits to strive for carbon neutral agriculture, while improving biodiversity and soil health. Biodiversity enhancement helps build the resilience needed to make agriculture sustainable in many ways as well as regulate nutrient-cycling and control pests, and provides pollination services, diverse crops, and genetic stocks for plant breeding.
We are helping growers to create rich habitats in field margins and riparian zones alongside rivers. We’re promoting managed forests and agro-forestry, which also help protect water bodies. And to preserve crop diversity, we’re working with groups that conserve wild crop relatives to integrate them into farming practice.
The Biodiversity dataset shows aggregated hectares of farmland that benefited from biodiversity conservation practices which were established or managed in collaboration with Syngenta. The dataset also includes the project location, the type of biodiversity practice, and the carbon benefit potential. The number of hectares of benefitted farmland is locally tracked through in-field assessments, and is documented and reported by project managers.
