Nutrien is committed to diversity and inclusive growth within our workforce, our supply chain, local communities and society at large. We are dedicated to being respectful and inclusive with all stakeholders.
Our approach is to address both internal and external efforts and connect them with sustainability goals and outcomes:
Diversity in our business creates value by aligning Nutrien’s business perspectives with an increasingly diverse customer base, building capability to operate in international markets, and enabling Nutrien to recruit from a larger pool of talent.
We currently concentrate our corporate efforts and resources in increasing representation of women and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, with a future match-to-market goal for representation of visible minorities in our employee population. We aim to increase the representation of women in senior leadership to 20 percent or more by 2022.
At Nutrien, we believe our business environment should reflect the diversity of our operating communities. We are committed to supporting diversity through our procurement practices, with the goal to minimize barriers and eliminate biases to supplier engagement. For more information please see our Supplier Diversity. We also go beyond our own supply chain and create economic prosperity and a more inclusive agriculture sector through partnerships and advocacy for inclusion.
