Material Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Topics

We are developing an enhanced materiality process that merges strategic issues management with our existing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) processes and includes a more formal and structured governance framework. We use a four-step process beginning with identifying and tracking, assessing both financial and non-financial factors, validating internally and concluding with communication and reporting. The process leverages qualitative and quantitative tools to help determine stakeholder expectation and potential risk or opportunities for Nutrien.

We reassess Nutrien’s material ESG topics annually.

Here are our current topics:

Category Topics

Level 1

  • Risks that can have broad impact on financial performance, operations or reputation or have legal implications

  • Significant interest to stakeholders and opportunities for Nutrien for which we expect to set targets

Level 2

  • Significant environmental or social impact resulting from Nutrien’s operations

  • Of high interest to stakeholders, lenders and potential investors

Level 3

  • Additional or emerging topics where interest or impact are increasing

  • Requested by frameworks or rating agencies but may not represent significant risks or opportunities
