Ten billion reasons why

Our purpose starts with the soil beneath our feet and the global challenge of feeding nearly
10 billion people by the year 2050. We cultivate solutions for growers so they can increase food production sustainably for generations to come.

We aim to make key transformations through ambitious commitments that drive systemic change and lead the next wave of agriculture’s evolution.

How we align with the UN SDGs <i id="un-sdg"></i>

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) brings the world together to address global challenges and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. Our efforts ripple through many of the goals but our primary focus is SDG 2: Zero Hunger through 2.4.1 sustainable and productive agriculture.

SDG Impact Assessment Report
ShowHide

This Impact Assessment Report is Phase 1 of our SDG assessment. Nutrien took great care in identifying SDG priorities. We selected priority indicators that were the most relevant to our stakeholders, and the extent to which a topic can be influenced by Nutrien. We understand our efforts impact many indicators through our daily business and value chain, but this report describes our most significant risks and opportunities. 

Nutrien continues to assess our SDG influence across our value chain to mitigate negative impacts and strengthen positive impacts. We know the world can’t solve for one SDG without influencing another – that’s why we have taken a systems-based approach to transform agriculture.

Partnerships
ShowHide

We are committed to contributing to sustainable development globally and in the markets in which we operate. As we strive to transform our food system and in the spirit of SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals, we encourage ongoing collaboration, sharing of information and pooling of resources for the generation of systems-based solutions. Nutrien is challenging stakeholders to come together to evolve the systems and policies needed to unlock new sustainable solutions while feeding a growing global population and protecting our planet.
