As a business, we are committed to environmental sustainability. We recognise the importance of good soil health and we work with our customers to help them farm responsibly and optimise fertiliser use.
Agriculture and food production have a central and critical role to play in the future as the world population grows. With the global population forecast to increase to more than 9 billion people over the next 50 years, fertiliser will be essential to ensuring there is enough food grown to feed the world.
However, it is increasingly important that our industry operates in a responsible and sustainable way. The UK government, as part of its commitments to The Paris Agreement (2016), has targeted net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. With agriculture estimated to be responsible for around 9% of total UK greenhouse gas emissions, our industry must help play its part in fighting climate change.
As a company we are committed to helping farmers farm responsibly, focus on soil health, and optimise fertiliser use accordingly.
