It should be a given by now but is nevertheless worth repeating: good corporate social responsibility is win-win. It doesn’t just protect stakeholders but profits the company too, not least in the area of labour relations.
California, the nation’s most populous state, votes again this Fall on the legalization of marijuana.

The 2016 Global Food Security Index (http://dptn.ws/6053BtVDH) was relaunched on June 9, 2016 at a congressional briefing in Washington, DC. The event was organized by DuPont and the Alliance to End Hunger with honorary co-hosts Senator Thad Cochran (MS) and Senator Chris Coons (DE).
Congress recently made the most significant reforms to environmental and public health law since the 1990 amendments to the Clean Air Act with the passage of legislation that updates the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). On behalf of DuPont, I commend Congress, particularly Sen. Tom Carper, Sen. Chris Coons and Rep. John Carney, for their extraordinary leadership and vision in passing a modernized TSCA that meets the needs of the 21st century and reassures the public about the safety of chemicals used in everyday products.

While the Index seeks to answer a simple question – how food secure is a country? – in reality, it presents a clarion call to action for governments, farmers, non-governmental organizations and agricultural companies alike.
The Index findings send a clear message: ending food insecurity is impossible without strong investments in agricultural research and development, outreach and education, and technology transfer.
