SYNGENTA: Using sustainable AgTech to feed the world

CIO and CDO Feroz Sheikh is transforming farmers’ lives through AgTech, which could lead to massive reductions in global carbon emissions

Syngenta is one of the world’s leading agriculture companies. Their ambition is to help safely feed the world while taking care of the planet, aiming to improve the sustainability, quality and safety of agriculture with world-class science and innovative crop solutions. 

Their technologies enable millions of farmers around the world to make better use of limited agricultural resources. Syngenta is part of Syngenta Group with 53,000 people in more than 100 countries and is working to transform how crops are grown. 

Through partnerships, collaboration and The Good Growth Plan, they are committed to accelerating innovation for farmers and nature, striving for carbon neutral agriculture, helping people stay safe and healthy and partnering for impact.

AgTech is a sector unlike any other. It involves the digitalisation of a lot of physical assets and typically spans over very vast and remote environments, which collectively have a huge role to play in the sustainability agenda.

At Syngenta, they thrive to innovate and offer solutions to fight climate change and tackle the challenge of feeding the world in a sustainable manner
