The Monsanto Pledge is our commitment to how we do business. It is a declaration that compels us to listen more, to consider our actions and their impact broadly, and to lead responsibly. It helps us to convert our values into actions, and to make clear who we are and what we champion.
Integrity is the foundation for all that we do. Integrity includes honesty, decency, consistency and courage. Building on those values, we are committed to:
We will listen carefully to diverse points of view and engage in thoughtful dialogue. We will broaden our understanding of issues in order to better address the needs and concerns of society and each other.
We will ensure that information is available, accessible and understandable.
We will share knowledge and technology to advance scientific understanding, to improve agriculture and the environment, to improve crops, and to help farmers in developing countries.
We will use sound and innovative science and thoughtful and effective stewardship to deliver high-quality products which are beneficial to our customers and to the environment.
We will respect the religious, cultural and ethical concerns of people throughout the world. The safety of our employees, the communities where we operate, our customers, consumers and the environment will be our highest priority.
Act as Owners to Achieve Results
We will create clarity of direction, roles and accountability; build strong relationships with our customers and external partners; make wise decisions; steward our company resources; and take responsibility for achieving agreed-upon results.
Create a Great Place to Work
We will ensure diversity of people and thought; foster innovation, creativity and learning; practise inclusive teamwork; and reward and recognise our people.
