Corteva creates positive Humankind Value with major contributions to Crop Production ($207.3 B) and Economic Value ($8.8 B). Our modern food systems result in relatively stable and low prices, and thus profits, that do not reflect the full life-sustaining value of food. Corteva produces economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Its work in the Crop Production category adds an estimated 4,301,045.7 equivalent life years, in which people avoided death or a reduced quality of life. Corteva has room for improvement, however, in the areas of Calorie Conversion (-$15.0 B) and Air Pollution (-$8.7 B). Its impact on Crop Production, Calorie Conversion, and Air Pollution are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners, while we attribute its Economic Value to direct business activities. For this firm, relationships with supply chain partners increase its already positive Humankind Value.
