The mission of the Pollinator Stewardship Council is to defend managed and native pollinators vital to a sustainable and affordable food supply from the adverse impacts of pesticides. As pollination is required for one-third of the nation’s food supply, we strive to accomplish our mission through the following activities:
- Affect regulatory processes of pesticide risk assessment, label, and enforcement.
- Provide advocacy, guidance and tools to document the detrimental effect of pesticides on pollinators.
- Raise awareness about the adverse impact of pesticides on pollinators critical to the supply of food and the ecosystem.
The Pollinator Stewardship Council believes that pollinators are an important part of agricultural and other ecosystems that should be protected from harm caused by pesticide use. Within this context, we also believe that farmers should be able to protect their crops from pests and use pesticides to do so. Coexistence of farming with pollinators is key to the survival of a vibrant agricultural economy.
