The Fertilizer Institute reports increasing sustainability efforts

The Fertilizer Institute’s Sustainability Report finds capital investments are making progress to protect the environment.

President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch says their members are investing more than $1 billion annually to help the industry meet sustainability goals.

“That can range anywhere from decarbonization technology to other systems to help track data and fertilizer use,” he explains.

Fertilizer manufacturers were able to capture more than 30 percent of their greenhouse gas emissions by increasing energy efficiency which Rosenbusch says is significant.

“Going back to 2013 when we first did the survey, it’s a 368 percent increase in GHG emission capture,” he says.

He says they also have a goal of 70 million acres under 4R Nutrient management by 2030.

Forty-two companies, representing 92 percent of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash production in the U.S., participated in the report.
