Description/achievement of initiative
DuPont is setting sizeable goals to help end world hunger and ensure food security that are achievable by the end of 2020.
Resources will come from DuPont as well as partners that Dupont works with.
Improving rural communities. We will work to improve the livelihoods of at least 3 million farmers and their rural communities through target collaborations and investments that strengthen agricultural systems and make food more available, nutritious and culturally appropriate. This in addition to the work already being done to enhance the lives of hundreds of millions of farmers through DuPont's normal business practices.
Engaging and educating youth. By the end of 2020, we will facilitate 2 million engagements with young people around the world to transmit that knowledge.
Innovating to feed the world. We will commit $10 billion to R&D and 4,000 new products to be introduced by the end of 2020. The work will center on producing more food; enhancing nutrition and food and agriculture sustainability; boosting food availability and shelf life; and reducing waste.
