Syngenta is a proud partner to Canadian agriculture. We work with various groups and organizations on agriculture sustainability initiatives that help ensure Canada’s rural communities remain vibrant.

Operation Pollinator

Operation Pollinator is a Syngenta program focused on research and partnerships to promote the health and well-being of bees and other pollinators given their essential role in agriculture and nature. The program’s mandate is to support activities that enhance biodiversity, habitat and other practical initiatives that contribute to healthy pollinator populations.

The Good Growth Plan

One of the planet’s greatest challenges is the need to provide food security for a growing population from increasingly scarce resources. Addressing this challenge will require every hectare of land already under cultivation to produce to its fullest potential and protect the planet’s biodiversity while delivering profitable returns for farmers.

Syngenta launched The Good Growth Plan in 2013, consisting of several important commitments we have made to help address major food security and sustainability challenges. We set six hard, stretch targets to be met by 2020 – and we achieved many of them a year early.

Our new Good Growth Plan puts the urgent fight against climate change and biodiversity loss at the heart of farming’s productive future and the global economic recovery.

We have four ambitious new global commitments to reduce agriculture’s carbon footprint and to help farmers deal with the extreme weather patterns caused by climate change.
