Segment ranking summary

Syngenta Group ranks fifth in the agricultural inputs segment, reflecting its leading performance in the environment measurement area. The company stands out from its peers through its Good Growth Plan Open Data disclosure in soil health and ranks second in environment. However, it lags in the governance and strategy as well as nutrition measurement area, barely making it to the top 20 of the segment. Similarly, in social inclusion, while Syngenta Group demonstrates leading practice in farmers’ productivity and resilience, it does not show a strong industry performance in the remainder social topics. Although the company performs relatively less well in the nutrition and social inclusion measurement areas, it discloses more commitments and activities than most of its benchmark peers.
