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.

Nutrien is positioned to drive long-term value creation through the integration of sustainability initiatives, from fertilizer production to grower practices in the field.

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

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. 

We know the world can’t solve for one SDG without influencing another – that’s why we have taken a systems-based approach.


We are committed to contributing to sustainable development where we operate. As we strive to feed a growing population, 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 sustainable agricultural solutions.
