CONTRIBUTING TO THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG’S)
The sustainable development goals set out by the United Nations to shape sustainable development globally play a key part in formulating our own sustainability strategy. Incotec, Crop Protection and Plant Impact - Croda’s three agricultural businesses - collectively use smart science to maximise land productivity, by increasing yield and resilience, whilst protecting soil health and biodiversity. Croda has worked with independent partners to validate the importance and relevance of the SDGs for both its whole business and its Crop Care footprint.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING
With the growing population, the increasing demand for food will require increased agricultural production. Croda Crop Care - which includes our three agricultural businesses Crop Protection, Incotec and Plant Impact - is collectively using smart science to maximise land productivity, by increasing yield and increasing resilience, whilst protecting soil health and biodiversity. We will further accelerate our positive impact by creating and delivering solutions to tackle some of the biggest challenges the world is facing. We will invest in innovation projects and partnerships to support crop and seed enhancement in mitigating the impact of a changing climate and land degradation.
Better quality crops
Higher yields and less waste
Spray quality control precision targeting
Reduced waste and off target drift
Mitigate effects of abiotic stress Input performance Improved penetration and delivery of active ingredients
Nutrient uptake and mobility
Enhanced uptake and delivery of essential nutrients
Optimise seed performance
Efficient protection of seed, quicker and more uniform germination
Efficient penetration of water and agrochemical treatments
INCOTEC PART OF CRODA CROP CARE
Incotec is a seed enhancement specialist and what we do contributes significantly to the development of sustainable agriculture. Our mission is ‘Contributing to feeding the world, by getting the utmost out of seed’.
Our solutions improve the resilience and performance of seeds and decrease the use of plant protection products. We have set our course for the coming years to make our business even more sustainable and to help our customers deliver their goals. All our efforts come together under our strategic direction Mission Zero.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) play a key part in shaping our strategy. The SDGs are a set of 17 global goals and 169 specific targets measured through 230 indicators. They are highly influential in shaping sustainable development globally, as all countries are expected to try and achieve the goals by 2030. Croda has worked with independent partners to validate the importance and relevance of the SDGs for both our whole business and our Crop Care footprint.
Croda Crop Care has teamed up with an external agency, Sustainalize, to identify the SDGs where Croda Crop Care have most impact. Although many SDGs have been identified which are positively impacted, five SDGs have been indicated to be influenced most by Croda Crop Care.
The outputs of the work with Sustainalize strongly demonstrate that Croda Crop Care has a major impact through enhancing efficiency and increasing yield (SDG 2.3 and 2.4 and 12.2, 12.3 and 12.4), and does that in a way that shows care for the environment (SDG 14.1 and 15.5), preferably working together with partners to realise their goals (SDG 17.16).
