Corteva Agriscience has announced the creation of a new Carbon and Ecosystems Services portfolio to develop innovative products and services. The initial offering will enable the carbon sequestration process, ease access to carbon credits and create flexible solutions to help farmers increase profitability while contributing to a climate change solution.
Additionally, Corteva has created the 2021 Climate Positive Leaders Program, which will recognize “early adopter” farmers and ranchers who have successfully implemented climate positive agriculture practices. These efforts support Corteva’s 2030 Sustainability Goals and are key components of the company’s Climate Positive Commitment.
