microplastic-free seed coatings offer a chance to improve sustainability in agriculture

Croda and the UN SDGs

The sustainable development goals set out by the United Nations to shape sustainable development play a key part in formulating our own sustainability strategy. Croda’s agricultural businesses - Incotec and Crop Protection - collectively use smart science to maximise land productivity, by increasing yield and resilience, whilst protecting soil health and biodiversity.

We worked with independent partners to validate the importance and relevance of the SDGs for our footprint. As part of Croda, Incotec is committed to developing sustainable seed solutions. Download 'Sustainable Innovation from Seed to Harvest' for information about the SDGs that are positively impacted and the four that most strongly demonstrate our contribution.

In 2015 Incotec's expertise in seed enhancement technology came together with the extensive Croda formulation know-how when Incotec became part of Croda. This laid the foundation for innovation and growth.

Croda formulates its purpose as 'Smart science to improve lives'. Incotec aligns fully with this by developing solutions that contribute to feeding the world through sustainable agriculture.
