Giving in the communities where we live and work is led through employee-driven initiatives.
As part of our Giving Back to Agriculture program, Syngenta employees are encouraged to give back in their communities. Field-based employees have a community investment budget to support initiatives that benefit local communities and initiatives. Employee’s personal donations are also eligible for a reimbursement program.
Syngenta employees are also encouraged to take one paid day off annually to volunteer with a community or charitable organization of their choice.
Examples of our partnerships in this area include:
Syngenta employees donate to their local United Way campaign through payroll deductions and fundraising events. Syngenta matches all employee donations annually.
Guelph Wish Fund for Children
Syngenta employees in the Guelph office have made Guelph Wish their charity of choice, helping grant a wish each year.
Holiday Adopt-a-family program
The Syngenta office in Calgary, Alberta, adopts a local family each year and help make their Christmas holiday a special one.
