Harpe said GGC looks forward to working with Corteva.
“Corteva has displayed bold leadership in supporting farmers in their goal to improve on-farm sustainability. With their focus on ensuring the resilience of our global food production system, they will offer valuable insight and be a trusted partner throughout this process,” he said.
In June 2022, Corteva outlined specific issues that need to be addressed including a focus on sustainable innovation, biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, inclusion, diversity, and equity.
Corteva Agriscience Canada President Bryce Eger said the company’s goal is to enrich the lives of those who produce and consume. He said farmers are the most important stewards of the land and natural resources.
“We believe climate positive agriculture is the way forward, where collective actions and commitments create a stronger and more productive food system,” Eger said. “Canadian farmers know that agriculture has the power to transform our planet’s environmental, economic and social health so that we can continue to feed the world while supporting the very resources that make it all possible.”
GGC recently awarded René Drolet Consulting Services a contract to lead the initiative to find ways to reduce GHG emissions with a focus on innovation, research, and beneficial management practices.
The roadmap will issue recommendations intended to guide government policies and programming directed at Canada’s grains sector.
