Page 6: Conclusion
As the world's population grows and living standards improve, society needs more fuel and more food.
A plant science business like Syngenta needs to understand the SLEPT factors in its environment. This helps it target its scientific research and technological development to:
- increase crop output
- improve yield to enable farmers to provide the increased demand the world needs
- create biofuels to replace existing fuels
- reduce society's impact on biodiversity
Syngenta is a leading supporter of food, feed and biofuel production. It plays a crucial role in helping to address the two global challenges of food security and energy security without the need to devote more land to agriculture.
