Global Challenges

It's a global commitment that puts together governments, institutions, companies and the whole society. Seventeen (17) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were established, resulting in one hundred sixty nine (169) goals that behold several dimensions: social, economic, environmental and institutional.

The SDGs were developed based on the motto “No one will be left behind” and represent an ambitious global vision structured around five crucial pillars for the sustainable development of the planet and all humanity:

1.People: End poverty and hunger, ensure that everyone is treated with dignity and equality and promote in a healthy environment;

2.Planet: Protect its degradation and its natural resources, promote sustainable consumption and production and support present and future generations

3.Prosperity: Ensure a fair economic and promote social and technological progress

4.Peace: Promote peaceful, fairer and inclusive society

5.Partnership: Implementing the 2030 Agenda through Global Partnerships for Sustainable Development

The 2030 Agenda is a historic global decision in the search for a sustainable path, and agribusiness is intimately linked to this theme.

Humanity has always depended on agriculture inputs. Nowadays, agriculture activities plays an important role in solving global challenges and have direct and indirect impacts in the Sustainable Development Goals, for example:

1.Eradicate extreme poverty for all people and reduce the population living in poverty by at least half

2.End hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round

3.End all forms of malnutrition

4.Double the agricultural productivity and the incomes of small-scale food producers

5.Ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices

6.Maintain genetic diversity of seeds and cultivated plants

7.Substantially increase water use efficiency

8.Double the global rate of improvement for energy efficiency

9.Improve economic productivity through diversification, technological modernization and innovation

10.Decrease the use of global resources to meet better consumption and production efficiency

11.Decouple economic growth from environmental degradation

12.Reinforce scientific research, encouraging innovation to enhance technological capabilities

13.Achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources

14.Ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems
