Nutrien is the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services and their purpose starts with the global challenge of feeding nearly 10 billion people by the year 2050.
In their recent announcement, Nutrien aims to make key transformations through ambitious commitments that will drive systemic change and will help lead the next wave of agriculture’s evolution. Their Feeding the Future Plan has three focus areas with six priority commitments:
In addition to these commitments, they also have new environment, social and governance (ESG) performance targets and goals which are integrated across their company.
Nutrien’s efforts ripple through many of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but their primary focus is SDG 2: Zero Hunger through 2.4.1 sustainable and productive agriculture. Their efforts drive at the core of their strategy which is to sustainably feed more people, using less resources and with fewer emissions.
Nutrien is encouraging stakeholders to come together to evolve the systems and policies needed to address these challenges. As they strive to transform our food system, they encourage the sharing of information and pooling of resources for a new generation of systems-based solutions.
