Client Case – Crop Protection Products: Strengthening Societal Acceptance

From societal debate to a loss of future revenues

  • The population’s ever-increasing critical stance against crop protection products

  • Public demonization of the agrochemical industry through NGO campaigns and media coverage

  • Distorted public perception and denouncing of crop protection products as generally toxic and carcinogenic

  • Increased regulation and restrictions for crop protection products through political will

  • Unsuccessful re-registration of active substances, product banning, and severe sales losses

To proactively prevent this, companies can substantially improve public acceptance beyond CSR and PR using appropriate stewardship measures and solutions. This will increase their License to Operate and correct distorted public perceptions that were fueled by negative campaigns and reporting. Through scalable Stewardship and Communication strategies, we strengthen Public Acceptance along the Agricultural Value Chain.
