Our strategy is to grow through customer-focused innovation – not just in product research and development, but in every aspect of our business model. We seek new and better ways to use resources, to develop and deliver products and services to farmers, and to create value for our many stakeholders – including employees, the communities where they live and society at large.
All this innovation has one focus: a passion for our customers, the farmers who grow the world’s food. To make our business work, we must understand their needs and deliver products and services that they value. And to make our business sustainable, we must take the long view: ensuring that what we do today strengthens Syngenta and the food chain for tomorrow – economically, environmentally and socially.
That’s why our Good Growth Plan commitments are integral to our business strategy. They put sustainability center stage in the way we do business and align closely with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
If we succeed, we will achieve not only growth for our business but also growth for all – creating value that benefits our employees, customers, communities and food chain partners. Our success will be measured through the benefits we bring to agriculture and the environment. But in a sector as challenging as agriculture, success is not a given. It will require determined execution. We will need to collaborate with many partners to achieve better outcomes and to earn trust by delivering on our commitments.
That trust depends not just on what we do: the "how" matters, too. So, transparency, ethics, safety and compliance are core to the way we work. In operating our business model, we’re determined to live by the values we have set ourselves – which are emboldened in the paragraphs above.
