Agriculture & Environment

To overcome today’s global challenges – and set forth towards a sustainable future – we must embrace the key role biotechnology plays in protecting our planet’s resources, driving a strong economy and improving people’s lives. By mid-century, our world’s population will swell to nearly 10 billion people who will depend on innovative and viable ways to produce the food we grow, the materials we use and the fuel that moves us. Biotechnology gives us solutions derived from nature that drive food & farm innovation, biobased manufacturing and the utilization of cleaner energy.
