‘…Nutrien is encouraging stakeholders to come together to evolve the systems and policies needed to address these challenges.’
Canada-based Nutrien, the world’s largest potash and third largest nitrogen producer, has published its Feeding the Future Plan, which set out ‘action pathways’ to help transform agriculture by 2030.
Nutrien said that with the world’s population expected to reach 10 billion by 2050, innovation is needed to increase food production for generations to come. The Feeding the Future Plan reflects the company’s commitment to drive change by helping to scale sustainable and inclusive agriculture. It also includes Nutrien’s commitment to ‘set science-based climate emissions targets through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).’
Nutrien’s Feeding the Future Plan has six commitments. These include enabling growers to adopt sustainable and productive agricultural practices across 75 million acres of land around the world, as well as creating new financial solutions for growers to strengthen social, economic and environmental outcomes in agriculture. The plan also sets out a route for investment in new technologies and the transition to low-carbon fertilisers, including blue and green ammonia.
Chuck Magro, President and CEO of Nutrien commented; ‘We know a collaborative effort is required to address climate change and feed the world. With a long-term goal to scale our programs and create real, lasting change, Nutrien is encouraging stakeholders to come together to evolve the systems and policies needed to address these challenges. We encourage the sharing of information and the pooling of resources for a new generation of systems-based solutions.’
