While Advanta Seeds is focused on the essential goals of food security, all Sustainable Development Goals are important to address. Advanta Seeds is making an impact on the key areas of all the UN SDGs: economic growth and profitability of people while protecting the planet.
Globally, our teams have pledged to live a sustainable life.
“I pledge to promote Advanta’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and promote sustainable agriculture. We need to rethink how we grow, share, and consume our food. I pledge to be an active participant in improving access to quality seeds which contributes to achieving food security globally. I pledge to make changes in my daily life that will minimize social and ecological consequences on our environment. I will encourage my community, colleagues, and family, to pursue a lifestyle that ensures a better and more sustainable future for all.”
Child labour is one of the critical social issues that Advanta Seeds, along with its parent company UPL address actively. To fight child labour, we started the “United Against Child Labour” (UACL) initiative. The objective is to end all forms of child Labour in the seed supply chain and to ensure education for children.
To target the issue at its roots, we developed an awareness program for the rural communities, and engaged local governments, schools, and media to advocate the cause.
Enhancing access to quality seeds for 40 million smallholder farmers by 2025.
65,000 smallholder farmers will be granted seed production contracts by 2025.
60% of our seed production contracts in Thailand will be granted to women by 2025.
Engage youth in programs that support agricultural production, such as school or community gardens.
We are breeding crop varieties better adapted to thermal shocks and drought to secure food production in regions heavily affected by climate change.
Nutrition is the key point for the SDG 2- End hunger. We are meeting the nutritional needs of a growing global population with biofortified crops and an array of nourishing vegetables.
Improving farmer access to innovative technologies through collaboration with development and finance institutions.
We share farming practices and hybrid varieties that improve farm productivity and profitability and help farmers mitigate climate change effects.
From Nepal to Nebraska, we’re making a difference on farms everywhere.
