RNA can help tackle some of humanity's greatest problems:

Feeding everyone, keeping them healthy, and protecting the planet.


Environmental, Social, and Governance responsibilities are core to GreenLight’s purpose

Meeting the needs of people, plants, animals and the planet

We harness the power of biology to meet the needs of the human race, plants, animals, and the planet.

Our investors, partners, and staff understand this is our purpose and know that we will always look to deliver benefits and returns that are sustainable.

We are a team dedicated to solving some of the world’s largest problems by delivering on the full potential of RNA through our innovative platform and products. Given the scale of the challenges we face, this is the only path that is both responsible and rewarding.

Solutions to our greatest challenges

Our products aim to address some of humanity’s greatest problems: Feeding everyone and keeping them healthy while protecting the planet.

The products we are developing aim for sustainable food production through highly selective RNA-based bio-fungicides and bio-insecticides. These solutions are designed to meet both the needs of farmers and consumers by offering effective pest management with a favorable environmental safety profile.

Our low-residue solutions address some of the most prominent
crop-production concerns farmers face today, including:

1. Resistance: resistance to chemical pesticides has grown exponentially over the past century. Our RNA product candidates offer a compelling new solution.

2. Residues: many traditional chemical pesticides persist in soil, making it a key consumer concern. RNA, in contrast, degrades quickly in the environment.

3. Regulation: consumers have pushed a growing number of traditional chemical pesticides to be withdrawn, more heavily regulated, and even banned due to concerns about environmental damage and health. RNA’s targeted approach offers a more favorable environmental profile and regulatory pathway.

GreenLight’s product pipeline for agriculture, human health, and animal health is powered by a development process and proprietary platform that allows us to design and manufacture RNA-based products at a broad range of scales in a fast and cost-effective manner, making these solutions rapidly accessible.

For agricultural products, GreenLight’s manufacturing plant in Rochester, New York, has the ability today to produce 0.5 tons/year of RNA.

To our knowledge, this is the largest RNA facility by volume in the world.

We believe in doing the right thing to meet our environmental, social, and governance responsibilities.
