Fertilisers

15.10.2013

Within our Fertiliser business, our sustainability focus within the value chain is on ensuring that the health, safety and environmental impact of products, product packaging and services are considered and managed responsibly and ethically.

The focus of our fertiliser extension and research programs is on the efficient use of existing fertiliser products and the development of enhanced efficiency fertilisers.

Our efforts to mitigate the environmental impacts of our fertiliser products include:

  • Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions, water use and waste associated with the manufacturing and transport of our fertilisers;
  • Developing and promoting enhanced efficiency fertilisers;
  • Maintaining product quality, including monitoring impurities that could impact soil health;
  • Adopting the Fertcare principles and code of practice promoted by the Fertilizer Industry Federation of Australia (FIFA).
