- Responsible manufacturing of crop protection products is an integral part of our industry’s stewardship programs.
- Plant science companies aim to protect both their employees and the environment to the fullest extent possible.
Manufacturing of crop protection products is done with a view to protecting both employees and the environment. The chemical industry, from which much of the modern plant science industry evolved, has always had a good safety record, and CropLife’s members have built on this sound base. Naturally, all regulatory standards are complied with, but the industry commonly takes its responsibilities further and takes part in voluntary initiatives. In addition to assuring the safety of workers, significant improvements have been made in reduction of waste streams and carbon dioxide emissions.
Overall, safe and efficient manufacture continues to be a focus of attention for the crop protection industry.
