DuPont has announced food security goals which the company will track along with its sustainability goals. The goals, to be met by 2020, include investing $10 billion in research and development; introducing 4,000 new products focused on producing more food; enhancing nutrition, food, and agricultural sustainability; facilitating two million engagements of young people around the world in educational opportunities; and improving the livelihoods of three million farms and their rural communities through collaboration and investments that strengthen agricultural systems. The DuPont food security goals were developed from a report issued last year by the DuPont Advisory Committee on Agriculture Innovation and Productivity for the 21st Century, chaired by former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle.

The Green Comm Academy has been launched by Green Comm Racing and Media Tenor International, to provide an educational and research platform to promote the study of sustainability as a top priority for corporations and governments. The Green Comm Academy will be part of Green Comm Racing’s America’s Cup Campaign, leveraging the media visibility of one of the world’s most prestigious sports events to promote sustainability as a key global challenge. The announcement follows the presentation of the CSR 2012 Report by Green Comm Racing and Media Tenor International at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
